Can Indoor Air Be Hazardous to Your Health?
Thursday, February 25, 2016
Homeowner with note about indoor air quality

Would you be surprised to learn that your indoor air quality isn’t all it’s cracked up to be?

We all like to think the air in our house is clean, great for our health, and nothing to worry about, but the truth about our indoor air quality can actually be quite different. Surprised? You’re not alone. Here’s the scoop on indoor air quality.

What’s In Our Air?

Because we close our homes tight to keep in the warm air during the winter and the cool air during the summer, we also lock in any pollutants with us. What pollutants, you ask? The primary pollutants that affect the air in our home are pollen, dust, dust mites, pet dander, bacteria, mold and mildew, and household chemicals.

How Do These Affect Our Health?

Pollutants are in the air everywhere we go, but it's the number of pollutants and the time of exposure that has the biggest impact. If you have mold in your home and mold spores in the air, that can be toxic and cause a multitude of health problems, including headaches, sinus congestion, rashes, and respiratory issues. The same goes for bacteria and dust mites if they are left to multiply and remain contained in your home. Additionally, poor indoor air quality can lead to allergy-like symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, watery eyes, fatigue, sore throat, and chest congestion.

What Can I Do About It?

One of the best and most effective ways to improve the air in your home and reduce the chances of health issues is with an air filtration system. The right system can help remove the air contaminants that put you at risk by filtering air through a screen that can capture and trap particles as small as pollen, dust, and even smoke.
