How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You Take a deep breath and inhale. Feels good, right? Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your house? If so, you might be shocked if you knew how many toxins you just drew in, including chemical vapors, microbes, mildew, viruses, bacteria, dust, dirt, pollen, allergens and more. Wait…are you serious? 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 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 pet. When it comes to food and water, it’s trendy to go organic or upgrade your faucet with the latest filter, but how about the air we breathe? Seriously, 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: Improve 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. Lower? your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air increases how efficient your heating and cooling system works. Want to enjoy a “smaller carbon footprint” and “lower costs over time?” Take care of your system.
