Air Quality: How It Affects Your Health

There are a lot of important things in our life, though our health and the health of our loved ones always get priority. Many people don’t realize how much they get affected by the air in our homes and the outside world.

One of the most common dangers of polluted air is respiratory disease, in the past 5-10 years respiratory disease cases quadrupled and it only gets worse. Some symptoms people experience are wheezing, coughing, tightness in the chest, shortness of breath, and that could develop into asthma. Sheesh. 

Luckily there are a lot of things we could do to improve our air quality, which would lead to better health. One of those things would be regular maintenance done to your air conditioner and furnace. Preventive measures like that would extend the lifespan of your unit and the longevity of components in it. Our membership would be a great option if you don’t want to keep up with remembering when your last maintenance was.

Secondly, regular duct cleaning would greatly reduce allergens such as pollens, spores, bacteria, and other microorganisms. Another benefit of duct cleaning would be bad odor removal and dust control. And, that is not something that has to be done every year, every 3-5 years would certainly be enough! Clean ducts = easy breathing.

If you are someone who is already experiencing respiratory issues or wants to take extra preventative measures, things like UV light or electrostatic filters are great options. UV light would ensure that 99.1% of air pollutants are eliminated and an electrostatic filter would ensure that all dust particles are getting caught and removed from airflow. Your lungs would thank you. For further questions, call us at (847) 744-8099.
