Most people are unaware that because people spend most of their time indoors, they are exposed to dangerous particles and pollutants.

In an article by Jacob S. on Livestrong.com, he states several facts and recommendations about the air quality in ones home as well as the pollutants that are evident.
“People spend about 90 percent of their time indoors, which increases the exposure to dangerous particles, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Any given volume of space teems with unseen molecules that could damage tissue when breathed in, so with important differences between indoor and outdoor air quality.
Indoor air has a higher concentration of gases and particles compared to outdoor air, typically due to inadequate ventilation combined with high temperature and humidity levels, which can hold a greater concentration of gases. Homes built to minimize the amount of air that leaks in will have particularly poor ventilation.
Because of the heightened concentration levels, the worst exposure to carcinogens and dangerous pollutants tends to occur in indoor environments. Most gases and particles outdoors become diluted or minimized instantly. Pollutants that have particular power outdoors usually remain close to the source. Many of these pollutants also pose problems indoors too.”
These factors play a large role when keeping up with the quality of air in your home. It’s important to learn the facts and be aware of the pollutants indoor and outdoor. Continue to keep your home efficient and comfortable by applying routine maintenance to any and all of your HVAC heating and cooling systems.
