Your Home Could Be Making You Sick – Our homes are now built “tighter” with the use of additional insulation, double glass windows and doors, and more weather stripping. This “tight” form of construction is much more resistant to fresh air exchanges, and therefore tends to trap the stale, polluted air that some of us spend over 90% of our time breathing. As a result, many forms of bacteria and viruses can thrive on the inside of heating and air conditioning systems causing numerous health problems. There are also particles of pollen, dust mites, bio-aerosols, dirt and pet dander to consider.
- The EPA – states that indoor air is one of the top five environmental health risks of our time.
- American College of Allergist & Asthma – states that 40% – 50% of all illnesses are caused by polluted indoor air.
- The EPA – states that the levels of hazardous pollutants in indoor air have been found to be up to 60 times greater than outdoor air.
