Air pollution is an unfortunate part of life, and we bring it into our homes every time doors and windows are opened. Indoor air may be loaded with mold, pet dander, dust, and other allergens, and heating systems, new flooring, and new furniture often release harmful particles into the air we breathe.
That dirty, contaminated air must be replaced with fresh, clean outdoor air, or the pollution will only get worse. When your air conditioner goes out, or there are gaps and cracks around ducts, windows, and doors, air can’t circulate, and it will become dirtier and more stagnant.
Good IAQ, or indoor air quality, helps families stay healthy and comfortable, but it doesn’t come naturally. Regular heating and cooling maintenance, frequent filter changes, dehumidifiers, and air purifiers can all improve a home’s IAQ. Below, we’ll explain how high-quality indoor air improves your health and well-being.
Why IAQ Matters
The EPA estimates that Americans are indoors 90% of the time, so the quality of indoor air is vital to our comfort and health. Home HVAC systems work to keep indoor air clean by reducing exposure to toxins, but they do so much more than that.
Better indoor air quality may reduce rates of inflammation, infection, and time away from work, and it may also increase our cognitive performance. If you’d like to learn more about the benefits of our indoor air quality services, get in touch with our team today.
Better and More Restful Sleep
With fewer pollutants and contaminants moving throughout the home, you’ll be less likely to have a dry, scratchy throat that keeps you awake at night. It’s so much easier to rest in a home with good air quality, and your entire family will get better sleep once you’ve taken steps to reduce pollutant levels indoors.
Fewer Airborne Allergens
Using professionally installed air purifiers in local homes will pull pollutants and allergens from the air, including dust, bacteria, viruses, pet dander, and more. With a reduction in indoor pollution, you may notice easier breathing, less sneezing, and fewer incidences of nose, throat, and eye irritation.
A Better Mood
While it may seem a bit silly to claim that better indoor air quality can boost one’s mood, it’s a fact. According to the American Psychological Association, cleaner air helps keep families satisfied and happy. With regular HVAC maintenance and periodic IAQ assessments, your entire family will enjoy a better quality of life.
A Less Toxic Environment
Better indoor air quality naturally leads to a decrease in toxins inside a home. It’s crucial for families to ensure that these toxins aren’t circulating in their indoor air, as contaminants create serious long-term health issues. A professional-grade purifier can remove excess radon, carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds, and other pollutants from indoor air.
