What is Indoor Air Quality?
“Indoor air quality” refers to the quality of the air in a home, school, office, or another building environment. The potential impact of indoor air quality on human health nationally can be noteworthy for several reasons:
- Americans, on average, spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors, where the concentrations of some pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than typical outdoor concentrations.
- People who are often most susceptible to the adverse effects of pollution (e.g., the very young, older adults, people with the cardiovascular or respiratory disease) tend to spend even more time indoors.
- Indoor concentrations of some pollutants have increased in recent decades due to such factors as energy-efficient building construction (when it lacks sufficient mechanical ventilation to ensure adequate air exchange) and increased use of synthetic building materials, furnishings, personal care products, pesticides, and household cleaners.

Effects on Human Health
Health effects associated with indoor air pollutants include:
- Irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat.
- Headaches, dizziness, and fatigue.
- Respiratory diseases, heart disease, and cancer.
The link between some common indoor air pollutants (e.g., radon, particle pollution, carbon monoxide, Legionella bacterium) and health effects is very well established.
Benefits of Healthy Air
1.) Sleep Better
Cleaner air means we will have the ability to rest easier and are less likely to get sick. This reduction in our stress levels makes sleep come more readily. But cooler air temperatures also help us to sleep better. It’s natural for our bodies to relax in cooler temperatures, and a good A/C can help quite a bit.
2.) Eliminate Odors
Having a more relaxed indoor environment makes it harder for mold to bloom and for germs to develop. A quality air filtration system also contributes to eliminating odors by preventing many germs, mildew, and pollutants from entering your home.
3.) Breather Easier
Breathing well is something we tend to take for granted. The more contaminated the air we breathe is, the more quickly we succumb to illnesses and allergies. Even a subtle amount of indoor pollutants can raise our stress levels and inhibit good health.
