What You Should Know About Indoor Air Quality

Bear Valley Plumbing & Heating


The bottom line about indoor air quality is that what you don’t know can hurt you. As a Big Bear homeowner, your to-do list is probably a long one. However, this does not mean that you should ignore the fact that you need to get proactive about improving the quality of air that you and your loved ones are breathing.

Nor should this be a project that you put off until a more convenient time. If you could physically see the contaminants in your air, you would probably be a lot more motivated to start making a change. However, in the same way, that you take precautionary measures to improve your water with a filtration system, the same care should be invested into the air you are exposed to.

What You Need to Know

No matter how clean you think your air is, no matter how new your home is, the truth is the air is not clean. If you do not already have a purification system in place, you are doing your household a disservice. Here are a few things you should know from your HVAC specialist:

Contrary to what you probably think, indoor air quality is actually worse than outdoor air. In fact, according to statistics from the EPA, indoor air can be anywhere from 2-to 100 times more contaminated than exterior air.

The EPA also ranks indoor air pollution as among the Top 5 environmental dangers. It does not matter where the home is located, exposure to chemical products, building materials, and combustion sources, just to name a few, are responsible for the poor air quality.

Statistics also show that humans spend an average of 90% of their time indoors. That is a lot of time to be exposed to these contaminants. You can help put an end to this by taking matters into your own hands. Stop putting off getting a system in place in order to clean up the very air that you breathe.
