The Benefits of Indoor Air Quality
Did you know that the air inside our homes can be up to five times more polluted than the air outdoors? Poor indoor air quality can cause various health issues, from headaches and fatigue to asthma and allergies. Luckily, there are steps we can take to improve our indoor air quality and reduce the presence of unhealthy airborne particles.
Here are some of the benefits of improving your indoor air quality!
Reduces Allergens and Irritants
From dust mites to pet dander, many allergens and irritants lurk in our homes without us even being aware. Routine upkeep can help you enjoy cleaner air that is free from pollutants indoors, so everyone can breathe easy!
Creates a Healthier Home Environment
In addition to reducing allergens, improving indoor air quality helps create a healthier home environment. Carbon monoxide detectors reduce your risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, while humidifiers help keep moisture levels balanced—a factor essential for respiratory health. And by keeping your HVAC system well maintained through regular checkups and filter changes, you can ensure that your family is breathing clean, healthy air all year round.
Improves Mental Well-Being
It’s not just the physical health that benefits from improved indoor air quality; mental well-being does too. Studies have shown that better ventilation reduces concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the home, which have been linked with depression and fatigue in some people. In other words, better ventilation means a better mood.
