How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You Take a big breath and relax. Feels good, doesn’t it? Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your home? If so, you would probably be surprised if you realized how many toxins you just pulled in, including chemical vapors, microbes, mildew, viruses, bacteria, dust, dirt, pollen, allergens and more. Wait…what? The EPA found in a survey that Americans spend 87% of their lives in the home, and that indoor air pollutant levels are up to 100 times higher than levels outside of your home. Yikes! Now think about the fact that people breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. And so do your kids. So does your Pug. When it comes to food and drinks, it’s becoming popular to go organic or enhance your faucet with the latest filter, but how about the air we breathe? Come on, people, indoor air quality isn’t a given. Not anymore. You really need to increase the quality of the air you breathe indoors. Doing so can: Reduce the negative impact on your health. That’s right. And actually, 50% of all illnesses are either caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air according to the American College of Allergists. Lower? your energy consumption. How?
