How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You Take a deep breath and inhale. Feels good, I bet? Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your home? If so, you may be alarmed if you had an idea of how many toxins you just inhaled, including chemical vapors, microbes, mildew, viruses, bacteria, dust, dirt, pollen, allergens and more. Wait…is that true? 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 you may find outside. Yikes! Now think about the fact that you breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. And that means your family does, too. So does your furry friend. When it comes to what we consume, it’s all the rage to go organic or fit your faucet with the latest filter, but how do we upgrade the air we breathe? Honestly, people, we can’t 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: Keep you healthier. 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. Lower? your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air enhances how efficient your heater/AC works. Can you say “smaller carbon footprint” and “lower costs over time?” A properly maintained heating and cooling system. Better air quality keeps heating and air conditioning components from corrosion, microbials, dirt and debris.
