How Can You Improve Your Indoor Air Quality?

Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality is important. When we think about indoor airborne pollutants, we often think about greenhouse gas emissions, but what about the airborne pollutants more likely plaguing our home and office HVAC systems? We’re talking about the pet dander, the dust, the biological contaminants, the cigarette smoke, and anything else affecting the quality of the air inside your home or office.

Quality Check: You Are What You Breathe

Breathing clean, quality air is essential for sustaining and maintaining good health. A large number of Americans spend a substantial amount of their time indoors, which is especially true during South Florida’s sweltering hot summers. Whether in an office building, a home, or any other type of structure, there are several types of pollutants, chemicals, and gases that can cause a litany of symptoms. Bad indoor air quality can cause allergies, headaches, watery and irritated eyes, and fatigue. Even more concerning, long-time exposure to these pollutants can cause serious health complications such as various forms of cancer.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), maintaining a clean HVAC system in your home or office can prevent environmental health hazards like asthma, which affects approximately 25 million people each year, 7 million of which are children. That’s a lot!
