What’s Happening to the Air Quality?
Whether we’re battling the downwind effects of Canadian wildfires, experiencing a lack of rain, or soaking in some rays on a beautiful day, our outdoor air quality can vary drastically from one day to the next.
Each day, we can see the air quality rating via airnow.gov and determine whether outdoor activities are safe. But what about the air in our homes?
We spend so much time indoors and often don’t realize how polluted our indoor air can be. Many of us aren’t breathing clean air.
According to the EPA, “Americans, on average, spend approximately 90% of their time indoors, where the concentrations of some pollutants are often two to five times higher than typical outdoor concentrations.”
Even without experiencing negative symptoms, the air you breathe indoors could be hazardous to your health. Cleaning supplies, paint, tobacco smoke, pet dander, mold, cooking appliances, and environmental sources could all affect the quality of the air you breathe.
So how can we improve our indoor air quality? Thankfully, technology can help us achieve cleaner air in our homes with these home comfort accessories:
- Air purifiers
