All sorts of things can pile up in your indoor air and keep recycling through your breathing space, especially when your home is closed up tight to keep cool air inside in summertime. And this is the sort of recycling that is NOT environmentally friendly. Or nose-friendly for that matter.
Is sneezing is the “new normal” in your house? You could be snorting some bad indoor air. But the sneezing and wheezing brought on by indoor air pollutants do not have to go on forever. If you think allergies are normal, we’re here to change your mind.
And this change is all about better health and safety.
Three quick questions to see if they apply to you…
- Do you find your home humid in the summer and dry in the winter? “Humid” can mean you feel clammy even after you dry off from a shower. Dry air means you sometimes get a static “shock” when you walk over carpet in the winter.
- Do you ever wake with a stuffy nose, headache or have allergies? Now the most important…
- Do you think any of this is normal?
I hope not. The American College of Allergists says over 50% of all allergies are related to poor indoor air quality. This means that dust mites, pollen, molds, pet dander, insect debris, smoke particulates (even from your home’s previous owners), plus the materials used to build your home, could be polluting your lungs.
Problems range from minor to serious as asthma and respiratory infections can result. Children and the elderly are most at risk.
Kind of scary, isn’t it? Our homes’ air quality determines the very air we breathe. We would never drink pond water, no matter how clear, but we breathe our homes’ air without even thinking about it. And we wonder why we have “unexplained” illnesses.
Polluted duct work can spew contaminants multiple times per hour. This is the air that you and your family breathe in all day and all night.
At Action Air, we’re in the home comfort business. We’ll review your entire air delivery system and if we find contamination, we will advise you on what to do. If we don’t find contamination, then you get great peace of mind.
