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 inside? 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 outside of your home. Yikes! Now think about the fact that you breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. And so do your kids. So does your pet. When it comes to food and drinks, it’s becoming popular to go organic or upgrade your faucet with the latest filter, but how about the air we breathe? Come on, 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: 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 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.
