Is Bad Indoor Air Prevalent?
Unlike with outdoor air pollution, no one issues warnings when your indoor air quality reaches unhealthy levels. However, the Environmental Protection Agency reports that indoor pollution levels can be considerably higher. In some cases, up to 10 times as prevalent compared to outside. Research shows that typically, Americans spend the majority of their time indoors, especially in warmer areas of Southwest Florida such as Naples. Given this information, it’s critical to consider what you — and your family — are actually breathing in.
Some indoor contaminants are easily detected, such as bad odors, dust, moisture, or microbial growth. Others, including odorless gasses, are less noticeable but have hidden effects. Still other irritants — scented candles, moth repellents, or aerosols, to name a few — we don’t associate with air pollution because we focus on their purpose rather than what they might be adding to our indoor air. All pollutants can cause fatigue, allergy attacks, headaches, or numerous other symptoms.
Our IAQ Solutions Help You Breathe Easier, Healthier
With the focus on energy efficiency, construction methods over the past few decades have evolved to the point where today’s homes have air-tight seals. Although that’s a good thing for energy conservation, it can be detrimental to your indoor air quality. A tight building envelope retains not only your conditioned air, but it also seals in polluted air. Fortunately, you don’t have to pick between energy efficiency and healthy air. Magnificent Air Cooling & Heating offers a selection of air cleaners and IAQ solutions that purify and freshen any unhealthy air that you might have trapped in your home:
- Air purifiers
- Air humidifiers
