How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You Take a big breath and relax. Feels good, I bet? Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your house? If so, you would probably be surprised if you knew how many toxins you just drew in, 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 indoors, 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 Pug. When it comes to what we consume, it’s trendy to go organic or upgrade your faucet with the latest filter, but how about the air we breathe? Honestly, people, indoor air quality isn’t a given. Not anymore. It’s important to take a look at the quality of the air you breathe indoors. Doing so can: Reduce the negative impact on 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. Decrease? your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air increases how efficient your HVAC system works. How about “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.
