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 in your house? If so, you might be shocked if you realized 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 inside, 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 people 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 food and drinks, it’s all the rage to go organic or enhance your faucet with the latest filter, but how about the air we breathe? Seriously, people, we can no longer take indoor air quality for granted. Not anymore. You really need to increase the quality of the air you breathe indoors. You’ll notice the following improvements: 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. Lower? your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air improves how efficient your HVAC system works. Can you say “smaller carbon footprint” and “lower costs over time?” A properly maintained heating and cooling system.
