Ten Facts That Drastically Affect Your Family’s Health

Due to an increasingly busy lifestyle Americans spend more time every day in the confines of an office, a classroom and our home.  With work and family responsibilities our lifestyles often keep us from spending much time outdoors in the fresh air.

This is why today the quality of the air we breathe indoors has become an increasingly important environmental and health concern. The quality of the air we are breathing today is greatly affected by our air conditioning and heating system.

The reason for that is simple, an air conditioning system doesn’t make air, it just recycles the same indoor air over and over again.

When you recirculate the air in a home repeatedly, breathing that air can be like bathing in someone else’s bath water due to poor and/or in adequate filtration.

Understanding how the quality of air affects homeowner’s lives is important.

The facts mentioned below are related to short term and long term symptoms to include, but not limited to, coughs, tightness in the chest, fever, chills, head and muscle aches, allergic responses, upper respiratory congestion
