Why is Indoor Air Quality Important?
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says that even a single exposure to air pollutants can cause ear, nose and throat irritation as well as “headaches, dizziness, and fatigue.” The real problems arise with repeated exposure, but luckily, you can greatly improve the indoor air quality of your home with the help of a seasoned HVAC professional.
Keeping a well-maintained HVAC system is the best way to prevent an overall negative effect on your home environment. It’s one reason the EPA also recommends Dallas indoor air quality service technicians use only approved refrigerants in home A/C units – a recommendation that Rescue Air prides itself on following.
Common Indoor Air Pollutants
When it comes to poor indoor air quality, every home has three main three elements that can negatively impact your health:
- Dirt (including dust and pollen);
- Germs (bacteria and viruses); and
- Toxic gases or odors.
Not only can these particles affect your well-being, they can also impact your wallet. The more dirt in your HVAC system, the less efficient it is and the harder it has to work to maintain your home’s temperature.
A clean HVAC system not only helps conserve energy, it also cuts back on environmental pollutants. In fact, utilities comprise 22% of the sources of oxides of nitrogen, which combines with volatile organic compounds to create harmful ground-level ozone that contributes to pollution. Breathing ozone leads to asthma, emphysema, throat irritation and respiratory issues. Do your part to lower pollution by keeping your home systems in check!
