Sick Building Syndrome: The Argument for Installing an IAQ System in Your Home

How often do you think about the air you breathe? You might ponder it when you’re in traffic and you can smell gas fumes through your car’s air conditioning system, or if there’s a pollen count warning in spring. But what about the everyday health hazards you’re already breathing in?

Air quality systems show us just what we’re breathing in on a daily basis, and the results are staggering. We believe that every home in America should install an air quality control system, and there’s more than a handful of good reasons for it.

SBS is a Growing Problem

As we spend more time indoors, sick building syndrome becomes an ever-growing issue. It’s already estimated that the average American home’s indoor air quality is 4-9x worse than the quality of air directly outside their front door.

It makes sense–we’re constantly breathing in the same recycled air, creating dust, breathing it in, then there’s airborne mold (which is more common than you think), carcinogens, aerosols, the list goes on and on. SBS is a growing concern, and IAQ systems are the remedy for those problems.

Longevity May Depend on Air Quality

We breathe more times than we could keep track of throughout any given day, not to mention how we breathe while we sleep. There’s information that correlates the quality of your indoor air to your longevity, and it’s just one bit of evidence that surmounts every single year in favor of improving your indoor air quality.

Indoor air quality also impacts your ability to sleep soundly, so poor quality air will reduce your quality of sleep, which reduces your quality of life and longevity all at the same time. We all know how important sleep is–why run the risk of poor quality sleep when you could tackle your indoor air quality issue?

Reduce Inflammation, Asthma, and Allergies

If you have allergies, or your child does, you’ll be happy to know that an indoor air quality system is a direct answer to those problems. While it can’t make them go away, an IAQ system can greatly improve the quality of the air you breathe in by catching more dander, dust mites, and allergens every single day.

Even if you don’t have asthma, allergies, or any other problem that can impact your respiratory system, the excess particulate matter you breathe in is still bad for you. Breathing in mold spores, dust, and pet dander can all inflame your lungs.

Your respiratory system has a natural waste system: it captures foreign particulate matter in your lungs, uses mucus to carry it through the waste systems of your body, and helps prevent all that horrible stuff from passing into your blood. But that waste system requires energy, and it’s not guaranteed to help against 100% of everything you could breathe in. Why strain your lungs when you could give them relief?

Let’s Upgrade Your Air Quality

Now that you know what you have to look out for in your own air quality, it’s time to take it seriously. You can’t defend against your home’s poor indoor air quality unless you get the right machine that works around the clock to keep you safe, and your air clean–we can help with that.
