How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You Take a big breath and relax. Feels good, right? Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your home? If so, you might be shocked if you realized how many toxins you just inhaled, including chemical vapors, microbes, mildew, viruses, bacteria, dust, dirt, pollen, allergens and more. Wait…what? The EPA found in a survey that Americans spend 87% of their lives in the home, and that indoor air pollutant levels are up to 100 times higher than levels found outside. Yikes! Now think about the fact that you breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. And so does your family. So does your furry friend. When it comes to food and water, it’s trendy to go organic or enhance your faucet with the latest filter, but how about the air we breathe? Honestly, people, we can no longer take indoor air quality for granted. Not anymore. It’s critical to take the time to assess quality of the air you breathe indoors. The benefits are: Improve your health. That’s right. And actually, 50% of all illnesses are either caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air according to the American College of Allergists. Reduce? your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air increases how efficient your heater/AC works. How about “smaller carbon footprint” and “lower costs over time?” Protect your investment. Better air quality keeps heating and air conditioning components from corrosion, microbials, dirt and debris.
