Why Does Indoor Air Quality Matter?

  • Air Quality
  • In order to save energy, homes are being built and updated more tightly, ensuring air neither escapes, nor enters. While this has successfully decreased energy costs, it’s also led to a worsening in indoor air quality. This means air cleaning and air filtration systems have become much more important. Cleaner air helps keep your equipment cleaner and running much more efficiently. Here are some facts and figures about the air in our home and us:

    • Polluted air causes 94% of all respiratory problems
    • Each person inhales over 3500 gallons of air each day
    • The weight of the air we breathe is more than that of the food we eat
    • You can only see about 1% of air pollutants with the naked eye
    • The average person takes 20,000 breaths per day
    • Approximately 40,000 dust mites can live in one ounce of dust
    • The average person sheds up to 700,000 skin flakes every day
    • Almost 70% of all households have one or more domestic pets. Owners suffer from reactions to their pets dander, skin flakes, hair or fur which can also collect pollens, mold spores and other outdoor allergens
