4 Ways Clean Indoor Air Can Improve Your Life
Few Things Are As Important As The Air You Breathe!
In extreme circumstances, people could go a couple of weeks without food, or about three days without water. But without oxygen to breathe, you wouldn’t last more than a couple of minutes. There’s nothing more important than the air you breathe, so the quality of your home’s indoor air should be a paramount concern. As Mr. Miyagi said, “No breathe, no life!”
Humans take around 20,000 breaths every single day and 90% of them happen indoors. R.S. Andrews has the expertise to ensure you have clean, quality indoor air in your home.
4 Ways Clean Indoor Air Can Change Your Life for the Better
1) Better Health
Think of a picture you’ve seen of a city covered in smog. Now imagine that indoor air is often up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. VOCs, allergens, pet dander, mold, mildew, germs, smoke; the air in your home is a buffet of toxic particulates. Since almost 50% of respiratory illnesses are caused by indoor air pollution, every moment you don’t address the issue is another moment your family is at risk for disease. By taking steps to minimize or eliminate these contaminants, you can reduce allergic or asthmatic reactions and the severity of respiratory infections.
2) Better Sleep
Much like obstructive sleep apnea can cause someone’s airway to close and wake them up at night, poor indoor air quality can get in the way of good sleep. If your air is full of particulates and pollutants, then they are taking up valuable real estate in your lungs instead of oxygen you need. Since our breathing is just as active during REM sleep as during the day, this can be disruptive to a good night’s rest. Better indoor air quality leads to better quality sleep.
3) Better Smell
What do you normally do when you notice an unwanted aroma in your home? Chances are, you spray some air freshener that will hide the unpleasant scent with a pleasant one. Despite their promises to “eliminate odors,” many scented solutions only mask the problem instead of fixing it. Plus, as they are also putting chemical particulates into the air, they can make things worse! Proper air filtering can remove mold, mildew and other odiferous offenders from the air to provide a long-term solution rather than a temporary fix.
4) Better Life
All of the above already add up to a major enhancement to your day-to-day living. But an energy efficient indoor air quality system can also help your bottom line. You can cut down what you spend on your energy bill, healthcare, allergy or sleep medication, and cleaning supplies - all while feeling better! Enjoying cleaner air at home will make you happier, more productive, and more prepared to take on life’s adventures.
