The Importance of Indoor Air Quality

February 9, 2022 | Blog

Though it’s often overlooked, the air you consume can make or break your health. Much like your diet and exercise routine, indoor air quality (or IAQ) has a dramatic impact on your well-being.

Poor air quality can wreak havoc on your respiratory system, leading to asthma-like symptoms or allergic reactions. High-quality air, on the other hand, improves your sleep, prevents common illnesses and even lowers your utility bills.

Southern Air South Louisiana provides IAQ services that transform your family’s health in the following ways:

The Benefits of High-Quality Air

Eliminating Germs

Each time you inhale, a new batch of particles floods your nose. In homes with poor IAQ, those particles might contain innumerable germs, resulting in persistent colds or more serious infections.

Without air quality testing, the following contaminants may fester for years:

  • Viruses
  • Bacteria
  • Fungi (or mold)

Alternatively, paying proper attention to IAQ can help you catch and remove these contaminants early on.

Preventing Allergies

Bad air may also be overpopulated by these common allergens:

  • Pet dander
  • Dust mites
  • Cockroach droppings
  • Household dust

If you or your family are perpetually afflicted with sore throats and runny noses, it’s time to adopt allergen-resistant IAQ solutions. You can also stop irritant buildup by replacing your filters frequently and scheduling AC maintenance appointments. These measures will help keep vents clear of dander and dust.

Removing Man-Made Pollutants

Beyond germs and allergens, there are still a few more airborne contaminants to watch out for. These man-made pollutants often accumulate from day-to-day living and household maintenance:

  • Fibers and fiberglass
  • Cleaning product fumes
  • Tobacco smoke

Though these irritants may not provoke immediate symptoms, they can weaken your respiratory system in the long term. Luckily, strengthening your IAQ can remove these pollutants too.

Minimizing Humidity

Good indoor air quality reduces excess moisture, meaning mold and bacteria are less likely to appear in the first place. Appropriate humidity also improves indoor ventilation, meaning unpleasant smells won’t linger in your home for long.

Reducing Utility Costs

When germs, allergens, pollutants and excessive moisture are filtered out of your air, your HVAC system won’t have to work as hard to maintain good circulation. Proper airflow translates into lower utility bills, as your AC unit will demand less energy.

Improving Sleep

Our sleep cycle depends on consistent breathing patterns, which unidentified airborne contaminants disrupt. Intense humidity, which often induces heavy breathing, can influence your sleep quality as well.

Every benefit listed above culminates in stronger respiratory health and reduced indoor moisture, meaning better breathing and better sleep. Therefore, on top of defending your lungs in the long run, high-quality air creates immediate, positive lifestyle changes.
