The Effects of Indoor Air Pollution

According to the EPA (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency) indoor air pollution can have serious and harmful effects on your health

just as outdoor air pollution can.

In fact, indoor pollution may even “...be two to five times - and occasionally more than 100 times - higher than outdoor levels.”

This should be of concern to us all since we spend nearly 90% of our lives indoors.

Benefits of Good Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

Good IAQ is an important ingredient leading to overall better health. This includes improvements in both long and short term ailments as well as certain life threatening conditions. Even some short term discomforts such as headaches, fatigue, sneezing, etc. may be alleviated. Improving IAQ are often leads to lower absenteeism as well as increased performance.

Higher energy efficiency also reduces utility costs and ongoing maintenance.
