Health and Indoor Air Quality

We’re all pretty concerned about our health nowadays. We try to take good care of ourselves and protect ourselves and our families against germs; but did you know that your indoor air quality can have a substantial impact on your health as well?

It’s true. Indoor air pollutants can cause coughing and sneezing, scratchy throats, eye irritation and sinus congestion. Poor air quality can even lead to breathing difficulty, infections and viruses, but believe it or not, it can get worse. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air pollution is one of the leading risk factors for illness and premature death and, aside from serious respiratory issues, it can lead to the development of certain cancers, heart disease and liver and kidney damage.

Indoor air pollutants can stem from all sorts of things, from new mattresses and carpet, to newly painted rooms, cleaning products, cigarette smoke, dust, pollen and pet dander. All of the items listed can make the air that you breathe inside even more potentially hazardous than the pollutants we breathe outside.

However, there are things you can do to keep the air in your home clean and healthy. In addition to providing our clients with comfort with state-of-the-art heating and cooling systems, Anderson Performance Heat and Air also specializes in air purification via high efficiency air filters, ultra violet lights or whole house purifiers – all of which are especially helpful for those with allergies, weakened immune systems and respiratory issues.

We don’t have a choice about whether or not we breathe, but we do have a choice about what we breathe within our homes. Call Anderson Performance Heat and Air at 386-402-7828 to learn more about the affordable home air purification that works best for you.
