3 Health Benefits of Clean Indoor Air
You always hear about the concerns about outdoor air pollution. But what about indoor air quality? Did you know that in many homes, the indoor air quality is actually worse than the outdoor air quality? This can cause many health issues that may be preventable with the right air filtration. Here are just some of the great benefits of clean indoor air.
1) Decrease Asthma Symptoms
According to the National Institute of Allergy and Infections Diseases, more than 25 million people in the United States suffer from asthma. That number keeps growing every year. While the symptoms of asthma are serious, minimizing triggers can help to control the serious effects. With proper filtration, asthma symptoms can be lessened.
2) Decrease Allergy & Respiratory Symptoms
Indoors there is a lot more exposure to dust and dander particles that can trigger allergic reactions. By decreasing the amount of dirt and dust in the air, you can lessen the symptoms of certain allergies. This can lead to a big increase in quality of life.
3) Increased Respiratory Health
We spend most of our time indoors. With bad indoor air quality, people often feel less than optimal 365 days a year. Sneezing, coughing, and runny noses are commonplace with people who suffer from respiratory issues. With clean indoor air, you can feel more alert and energetic, even when you are stuck inside.
How to Clean Your Air
The best way to clean your home’s air is to invest in a high-quality air filter for your heating and cooling system and replace it seasonally. You may also purchase air quality products, such as our Air Scrubber, to help clean your air at a low cost. If you are using your A/C or Furnace on a daily basis, consider replacing it every quarter. If you use your system sporadically, twice a year would be recommended.
