3 Reasons You Should Care About Your Indoor Air Quality
- Exposure to Pollutants: You could be unknowingly breathing in harmful pollutants, which could compromise your good health and leave you vulnerable to illness. Many biological pollutants can unknowingly wreak havoc on your immune system. In addition to causing illness, some of these pollutants are toxic in large amounts and can even lead to death.
- Upper Respiratory Distress: During the winter months, it’s easy for your mucous membranes to become dry from the cold winter air. Dry mucous membranes can cause respiratory distress and illnesses like asthma, bronchitis, and even nosebleeds. The IAQ in your home can worsen your respiratory distress and lead to longer bouts of illness. Poor air quality can also make it difficult to recover. Many Americans suffer from asthma, which is a chronic illness directly linked to poor indoor air quality. In extreme cases, poor air quality can cause severe or chronic illnesses if not treated immediately.
- Increased Expenses: Many homeowners are shocked when they realize IAQ impacts both their personal and financial health. The HVAC system in your home becomes inefficient when it circulates and works to filter polluted and contaminated air. Biological contaminants, the same ones harmful to your health, are also harmful to your heating and cooling unit's long-term operation. Your system could be exposed to additional wear and tear, resulting in a shortened lifespan and additional costs.
