Most homeowners aren’t aware that their indoor air quality can actually be worse than the quality of their outside air. This is particularly true during this time of year, when we are exposed to allergens such as dust, pollen, and even pet dander from shedding pets. The good news is that we offer quality air filtration systems to help reduce the effects of poor indoor air quality. But why is this so important?
Clean indoor air reduces allergy symptoms. This is because the right air filtration and air purifying systems will eliminate many problem-causing allergens such as pollen, dust, mold and mold spores. If your home’s ductwork is infected with these particles, then these allergens will consistently accumulate and recirculate through your home, making it hard for allergy sufferers to live comfortably.
If anyone in your household suffers from asthma, then they are typically sensitive to outdoor pollutants such as smog, smoke, soot, fumes, and more. Unfortunately, without the right air filtration system your indoor air can be much more polluted than the outdoor air, making it hard for that asthma sufferer to remain healthy and comfortable in their own home.
Even when a healthy person becomes ill, poor indoor air quality can make it worse. In fact if you come down with a cold, the flu, or a respiratory illness such as bronchitis, polluted air will magnify your symptoms. It may even prolong symptoms such as congestion, sneezing, and itching. However, clean air will help your bod fight the illness and shorten its length. This is particularly important if you have children or elderly individuals living in your household.
Improve Overall Wellness
Even if you aren’t suffering from allergies, asthma, or an illness, good indoor air quality helps get more oxygen to your brain, allowing you to breathe better, sleep better, stay more alert, and feel more refreshed. Clean indoor air just makes good sense!
