First, lets discuss why we are seeing an increase of indoor air pollutants. Today’s homes and structures are built for energy efficiency, they are sealed nice and tight. However, the problem is we spend most of our time indoors and unfortunately VOC’s and other contaminants are trapped in our energy efficient homes. We are continuously exposed to allergens, viruses, bacteria, dust, contaminants and it is weighing on our health. Some health effects can be seen within days, weeks or some could take years. So, what does science have to say about this?

According to the EPA, the connection between indoor air and health effects are greatly connected. Mild effects from poor indoor air quality include headaches, fatigue dizziness, respiratory diseases, irritated eyes, nose and throat. Asthma symptoms are triggered and become worse by allergens, dust, mold and pet dander in the air. In one extreme case, one form of pneumonia was found to be directly related to a poorly maintained HVAC systems.
