Indoor Air Quality is of greater concern than ever. Not only must we be aware of moisture caused problems like molds and mildew, bacteria, gases such as radon and carbon monoxide, but also with such issues as VOCs (volatile organic compounds), the chemicals that are in so many of the products we use in our homes, from paint to pesticides to cleaning solutions. The closed environments of our modern, airtight dwellings tends to exacerbate these issues, creating of our indoor areas very much poorer quality air than that which is outside.
Air purification is a critical component of good indoor air quality. Even the best kept homes will have dust, pollen, mold spores and other allergens in the air. A good air filter is essential to reduce common allergen and airborne particles, reducing allergy and asthma attacks. It is estimated that Americans spend as much as 95% of their time indoors. Why spend that time breathing dust mites, mold spores and pet dander?
According to the American Lung Association poor indoor air quality may cause or contribute to the development of chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma and can cause headaches, dry eyes, nasal congestion, nausea and fatigue.
