How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You Take a deep breath and inhale. Feels good, right? Not to be a killjoy, but are you inside? 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…is that true? The EPA found in a survey that Americans spend 87% of their lives inside, and that indoor air pollutant levels are up to 100 times higher than levels outside of your home. 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 Pug. When it comes to food and water, it’s all the rage to go organic or enhance your faucet with the latest filter, but how do we upgrade the air we breathe? Honestly, people, indoor air quality isn’t a given. Not anymore. You really need to increase the 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. Reduce? your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air enhances how efficient your HVAC system works. Can you say “smaller carbon footprint” and “lower costs over time?” Take care of your system. Better air quality keeps heating and air conditioning components from corrosion, microbials, dirt and debris.
