How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You Take a big breath and relax. Feels good, I bet? Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your house? If so, you would probably be surprised if you realized how many toxins you just pulled in, including chemical vapors, microbes, mildew, viruses, bacteria, dust, dirt, pollen, allergens and more. Wait…what? 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 does your family. So does your furry friend. 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, we can’t take indoor air quality for granted. Not anymore. You really need to increase the 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. Lower? your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air enhances how efficient your heating and cooling system works. Want to enjoy a “smaller carbon footprint” and “lower costs over time?” A properly maintained heating and cooling system.
