How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You Take a big breath and relax. Feels good, doesn’t it? Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your home? If so, you would probably be surprised if you knew 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 found outside. Yikes! Now think about the fact that we breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. And that means your family does, too. So does your pet. When it comes to what we consume, it’s all the rage to go organic or enhance your faucet with the latest filter, but how about the air we breathe? Honestly, people, we can’t take indoor air quality for granted. Not anymore. It’s important to take a look at the quality of the air you breathe indoors. The benefits are: 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 improves 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. If you’re a DIYer, you can definitely take steps to improve the air quality in your home.
