Just last year, the Environmental Protection agency reported that “Americans, on average, spend approximately 90% of their time indoors.” While indoors, we breathe whatever contaminants are in our indoor air, and some contaminants are found in concentrations up to five times higher indoors than outdoors! Of course, spending more time outdoors can be beneficial to our health in many ways. But a significant amount of time is spent breathing indoor air regardless. Do we have to resign ourselves to breathing in all those contaminants?
No! A whole-home air purifier can dramatically reduce the particles in our air and give us much higher indoor air quality—and higher quality of life. Let’s begin by answering some frequently asked questions about indoor air quality and the systems that can improve it.
