Why Is Indoor Air Quality Important?

Do you or your family members suffer from seasonal allergies or respiratory problems? Do you stay indoors during the spring to avoid airborne allergens like pollen and hay fever? Did you know that the air you’re breathing inside your home can actually be making the problem worse?

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, poor indoor air quality can be a major health risk. The effects can cause health issues such as colds, headaches and nausea and aggravate the symptoms of people who already suffer from asthma and other allergies. It’s time to fight back – don’t let indoor air get the best of you!

Improving your indoor air quality can help infants and the elderly who have weaker immune systems and it can benefit everyone by allowing you to breathe cleaner, healthier air. How, you may ask? A High Energy Particulate Filter (HEPA) is a great way to improve, as well as maintain, indoor air quality by removing up to 99.7% of harmful airborne particles.

In addition to HEPA filters, Germicidal UV Lamps help to sterilize and kill airborne particles that can spread diseases. They are often used in hospitals and healthcare facilities across the nation and they can now be installed in your home.
