One of the most dangerous misconceptions about indoor air quality is that it is healthier than outdoor air. The reason this is so harmful is that, for one thing, it simply is not true. This leads Oklahoma City homeowners to ignore the need for improving their air quality and, instead, focusing on superficial and trivial matters like picking the right paint color for the interior walls.
Let’s face the facts, once and for all. For instance did you know, according to documented research, the air inside your home could be as much as 2-100 times more polluted than the air outside your home? When you also take into consideration that people spend more than 90% of their time indoors, it begins to make you aware of just how important this really is.
It Impacts Everyone
Anyone who suffers from allergies, asthma or other breathing related health conditions is especially sensitive to poor indoor air quality. However, it is important to understand that this affects everyone. It is as important to improve the air that you breathe the same way it is essential to address the quality of the water that you drink.
Make it a point to have a method in place to improve your air quality so that:
You and your loved ones will not suffer through unnecessary resulting ailments like headaches. Many people who suffer frequent headaches are unaware that their air quality could be the culprit causing it.
Did you know that having humidifier in place can even help reduce the risk of spreading disease to every member of the household? Airborne contaminants travel easily through dry air. Reintroduce moisture back into the air in order to help lower the risk of spreading disease, as well as many other benefits.
Too many homeowners think simply changing the filters for their HVAC system is enough to improve air quality. While that certainly helps, it is just a fraction of what you need to have healthier air to breathe. Not to mention, if you have ever seen just how dirty those filters are imagine what is still circulating in the air that you do not see or do anything about.
