Indoor Air Quality
Indoor Air Quality
You would likely be surprised if you knew more about your indoor air quality, like how many pollutants/toxins you may have floating around your home or business. These pollutants/toxins include chemical vapors, microbes, mildew, viruses, bacteria, dust, dirt, pollen, allergens and more.
Accel Heating & Cooling can help clean up the air you and your family breathes.
The EPA discovered in a survey that Americans spend 87% of their lives inside, and that indoor air pollutant levels are up to 100 times higher than pollution levels found outside. Scary! Now think about the fact that you breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. So do your kids. So does your Pug. Seriously, we need to stop taking indoor air quality for granted. It’s time to make a change.
Signs and Symptoms of Indoor Air Pollution
- Trouble breathing inside your home or business, more than outside
- Worsening chronic respiratory symptoms, such as asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema
- Fatigue, headache, dizziness, or confusion
- Digestive or Nausea problems
- Wheezing, coughing and other allergy-like symptoms
Here are a few signs to look for around your home that could point to indoor air quality problems:
- Condensation on windows and walls
- Moldy spots on home items or appliances
- Central heating and air conditioning filters that quickly get dirty
- Air with a stuffy or “off” smell
Your family needs to take steps to increase the quality of the air you breathe indoors. Doing so can:
- Maintain 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.
- Reduce your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air improves how efficient your heating and cooling system is. Can you say “smaller carbon footprint” and “lower costs over time?”
- Protect your investment. Enhanced air quality keeps heating and air conditioning components from corrosion, microbials, dirt and debris.
