What You Don't Know About Your Home's Air Could Hurt You
As homes continue to be built more tightly to increase energy efficiency, a new problem has sprung up - indoor air pollution.
According to studies by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), your home's indoor air could be up to 100 times more polluted than the worst outdoor air. And because the air you breathe affects your health, this is a serious problem.
In fact, the EPA has listed indoor air pollution as one of the top five environmental risks facing the American public.
Why You Should Care
The American Lung Association and the American Heart Association have linked air pollution to a number of health problems, including cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, breathing difficulty, allergies, and other respiratory conditions.
In recognition of these, and other, findings, strict environmental guidelines have been implemented to help improve outdoor air. But the air in your home could be even worse than outdoor air. What You Can Do About It
Regularly cleaning and ventilating your home can help, but are often not enough. This is where a whole-home air cleaner or air purifier can help.
