How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You Take a deep breath. Feels good, I bet? Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your home? If so, you may be alarmed 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 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 that means your family does, too. So does your Pug. When it comes to food and drinks, it’s trendy to go organic or fit your faucet with the latest filter, but how do we upgrade the air we breathe? Come on, people, indoor air quality isn’t a given. Not anymore. It’s important to take a look at the quality of the air you breathe indoors. Doing so can: 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. Reduce? your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air improves how efficient your heating and cooling system works. How about “smaller carbon footprint” and “lower costs over time?” Protect your investment.
