It’s amazing how the quality of your home’s air affects the quality of your life. Unfortunately, poor indoor air quality in the home continues to be a concern for many of us. The EPA reports that indoor air can be 4-5 times more polluted than outdoor air!
To conserve energy, modern homes are built increasingly airtight. This traps pollutants that can be harmful to you and your family and can make your home less comfortable.
Have you ever noticed that you can tell how comfortable a home is just by walking through the front door? Is it too hot or cold? Too humid or dry? Does it smell clean and fresh, or stale and musty? With the average person spending at least a third of their day sleeping in their home, don’t you think your home should be as comfortable as possible?
What does your home’s heating and cooling system have to do with your health? Surprisingly, quite a bit. As anyone who has ever suffered in a house that’s full of allergens, too hot, cold, humid or dry can attest, the air conditions inside your home can have big effects on your physical comfort and mental well being.

In recent years, the quality and cleanliness of the air that we breathe on a constant basis has received increased attention from doctors, scientists, universities, governments and homeowners worldwide. As study after study is completed, the general public is becoming more aware of the health effects that are caused by poor indoor air quality. In fact, the EPA cautions all Americans that indoor air pollution levels can be higher than outdoor levels.
“In the last several years, a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities. Other research indicates that people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. Thus, for many people, the risks to health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors.”
“In addition, people who may be exposed to indoor air pollutants for the longest periods of time are often those most susceptible to the effects of indoor air pollution. Such groups include the young, the elderly, and the chronically ill, especially those suffering from respiratory or cardiovascular disease.”
