5 Benefits of Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality in Houston TXThe amount of industry in Houston and Brookshire obviously leads to air pollution. It enters homes on shoes and clothing, on hair and skin, as well as being blown through the HVAC unit. Additionally, furnishings, floor coverings, and cleaning supplies have chemicals harming air quality in the home.

Here are five benefits of good indoor air quality:

1. Better Breathing
Respiratory illnesses are triggered by dozens of things in indoor air. Perfumes, cigarette smoke, air fresheners and other irritants cause the chest to tighten, triggering an asthma attack. Asthma can lead to death. When irritants and pollutants are removed from the air, the chest is open and breathing is fluid. The lungs, heart, and body work better.

2. Fewer Allergens
Allergens cause coughing, dry, itchy eyes, sneezing, congestion, and other problems. Allergens aren’t only found in flowers, grass, and trees, though. It’s found in insect and rodent effluvia, dust and dust mites, mold, and animal dander. A good indoor air quality system clears all that from the air for better allergy management.

3. Better Sleep
A good night’s sleep is interrupted by breathing in Volatile Organic Compounds or VOCs. They reduce the oxygen we breathe, so we sleep restlessly. Breathing changes in sleep anyway, so good indoor air quality ensures we sleep well.

4. Energy Costs Less
Filters in HVAC units won’t work so hard to clean the air. The unit won’t kick on as frequently. Thus, energy will cost less. The unit will last longer, too.

5. Less Moisture In The Air
Air too dry irritates skin and eyes. Air too moist causes mold. The perfect compromise is an air quality system keeping moisture levels to the ideal of 40 to 60 percent.
