Poor IAQ Can Be Deadly?

A Canadian family’s poor indoor air quality almost led to tragedy.  This article is prime and extreme example of how poor indoor air quality can lead to oodles of health problems not excluding death.  According to the EPA “In the last several years, a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities. Other research indicates that people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. Thus, for many people, the risks to health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors.”

Further, there are many studies done by accredited agencies that have proven that poor indoor air quality can lead to poor health.  Poor IAQ can increase the risk of developing asthma and other illnesses and diseases, especially in young and elderly people. 

It is important to have the proper ventilation, air filtration and humidity in your home to make it healthy.  Your local Aprilaire contractor is a great source to help you determine if your home lacks any of the above mentioned aspects of IAQ.
