What is Indoor Air Quality?
As indicated by the name, Indoor Air Quality is a term that refers to the quality of air inside buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of the building’s occupants. In dwellings, this means people living in the home as well as people visiting and staying. National studies conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) indicate indoor air can be three to five times more polluted or contaminated than outdoor air. This seeming rise in indoor air pollution is likely due to modern-day building practices in addition to things being used in homes. The building practices are designed to save money. To be more energy-efficient and keep heated and cooled air inside, today’s homes are built airtight with more insulation than ever before.
Why Is Indoor Air Quality Important?
Numerous studies nationwide have shown that air pollution in our homes can be more of a health concern than outdoor air pollution. Indoor pollutant levels are often, in fact, a lot higher or worse than levels outside the home. Essentially, there are three main reasons why indoor air quality is becoming more of a health concern in homes throughout the nation:
- The average American spends about 90% of their time indoors.
- Harmful chemicals are used inside the home in building materials, cleaning solutions, furnishings, pesticides, cooking, smoking and personal care products.
- Modern homes are built air tight and often lack adequate ventilation.
4 Benefits of Optimimal Indoor Air Quality
Home comfort and air quality go hand in hand, and Bexley Heating & Cooling goes beyond home comfort to offer healthier indoor air environments for all. Below are some of the benefits of good indoor air quality:
Remove Pollutants & Allergens
When we are allergic to something, it’s our body’s natural way of saying it can’t tolerate whatever it’s taking in or breathing in. That means the more someone gets exposed to airborne allergens, the more likely they are to become ill. Proper air quality enables the body to recover properly. This way, you’ll be at your best when you do go outdoors.
Lowers Utility Bills
Sometimes homeowners try keeping their bills low by turning off the air conditioner and turning it back on when they’re hot. Nevertheless, this doesn’t work. Turning it off and on is hard on the equipment, and it makes your unit work harder. Upgrading to a newer AC will help improve air quality. A better running system enables you to keep your home cool efficiently. Newer models are cheaper to run and can even end up paying for themselves in a fairly short period of time.
Better air quality means we are less likely to get sick. It also helps improve rest. This reduces stress and improves sleep. Cooler temperatures also enable us to sleep better. It’s natural for our bodies to relax in cooler temperatures, and a good air conditioning unit that takes care of our air quality goes a long way.
Healthier Home Environment
Do people often take clean air for granted? Nevertheless, this changes quickly when we realize we have an air quality problem in our home. The more polluted the air in our homes, the more easily we fall prey to allergies, asthma, and other ailments. Even subtler levels or minute amounts of indoor pollution can affect our well-being and stress levels. In addition, it prevents optimal health and energy levels. Bexley Heating & Cooling offers Central Ohio a whole line of A/C systems with advanced dehumidifying features that makes breathing easier all year long.

3 Warning Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality
If you're a Bexley, OH homeowner experiencing one of the following warning signs of poor indoor air quality, we encourage you to call Bexley Heating & Cooling today at (614) 924-7856 for expert recommendations. We offer a variety of products and services to improve any air quality situation.
Air Circulation Problems
If the air doesn’t pass through your HVAC unit, it doesn’t get filtered and purified before entering the rooms of your house. In addition, problems with low airflow from your vents or air leaks in your ductwork increase the number of airborne contaminants in your home and throw off indoor humidity levels.
Musty odors are telltale signs of mold growth. If the odor is more pronounced around your vent registers or while your HVAC system is running, it’s a major red flag. Mold produces a musty odor because it releases organic microbial compounds that are volatile as it grows. Exposure to these compounds can cause headaches, dizziness, nausea, and fatigue.
Frequent Allergies & Illness
The EPA says short-term symptoms of poor indoor air quality include eye, nose, and throat irritation, as well as fatigue, dizziness and headaches. Poor air quality in a home can also aggravate pre-existing conditions like asthma. Indoor pollutants can carry the risk of heart or respiratory disease and even cancer, although reactions to pollutants will vary from person to person. Take notice if respiratory symptoms are worse when you are at home than when you are away from home.
