How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You Take a deep breath. Feels good, right? Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your house? 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 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 we breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. And so do your kids. So does your Pug. When it comes to what we consume, it’s all the rage to go organic or enhance your faucet with the latest filter, but what about the air we breathe? Honestly, people, we can’t take indoor air quality for granted. Not anymore. It’s critical to take the time to assess 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. Reduce? your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air increases how efficient your heater/AC 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. If you’re a DIYer, you can definitely find ways to bump up your home’s air quality.
