Importance Of Indoor Air Quality

air qualityIs the quality of the air in your home impacting your family’s health? According to the EPA, poor indoor air quality can be even more damaging to your health than the air pollution found outdoors. Smog, pollen and other environmental allergies can make a person feel miserable. However, many people underestimate the importance of indoor air in maintaining good health. It is estimated that in certain situations, indoor air pollutant levels are much higher than outdoors. Poor indoor air quality is a contributor to a wide variety of different health problems, such as asthma, Legionnaires' disease, eye irritation, sneezing and nasal congestion, throat irritation and coughing, headaches, fatigue, and many others.

Poor air quality affects tens of thousands of Wisconsin residents and can be caused by a number of different factors. Your heating system can be a major source of poor indoor air quality, especially if your furnace is gas or wood-powered. If you do not maintain your heating system with regular inspections and filter cleaning, combustion byproducts, such as soot or carbon monoxide, can build up in your home over time. Without some sort of air purification system, outdoor pollutants can also accumulate within your home. Although newer, energy-efficient homes are tightly insulated to help you save on your heating and cooling bills, this tighter insulation also means that pollutants have a difficult time escaping from your home. Without a high-quality air purification system, these pollutants can build up to unhealthy levels. In addition, without adequate air cleaners, bacterial spores that grow in your ventilation ducts can move from your home’s ducts into the air that you breathe every day.
