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 a Humidifier
Increasing the amount of moisture in the air can also reduce snoring. If the air is dry, a person’s airways are less likely to be sufficiently lubricated, making snoring worse. Adding humidity to the atmosphere by running a humidifier at night may help to relieve some symptoms.
Improve a Bad Cough
Dry air can cause a person to have a dry, unproductive cough. Adding humidity to the air can get more moisture into the airways, making a cough more productive. A productive cough releases trapped or sticky phlegm.
Some people notice that their skin, lips, and hair become dry and fragile in the winter. Many heating units pump hot, dry air through the house or office, which can make the skin dry, itchy, or flaky. Cold air outside can also dry out the skin. Using a humidifier to add moisture to the indoor air may reduce the occurrence of dry, cracked skin.
Moisture from a humidifier can be helpful around the home. Any moisture-loving houseplants may become more vibrant, and wood floors or furniture may last longer. Humidity can also help to prevent the wallpaper from cracking and static electricity from building up. Humid air can also feel warmer than dry air, allowing homeowners to save money on utility bills in the winter months.
