For many, springtime is not only a season of rebirth and renewal – It’s also a season for sneezing, coughing, red eyes, and runny noses. Either you suffer from seasonal allergies, or you know someone who does. It’s that common. Thankfully, an indoor air filtration system can help alleviate these symptoms, if not eliminate them altogether, at least while you’re at home or work. But the issue is bigger than seasonal allergies. Poor air quality can lead to other, more chronic health conditions, as well.
The Lowdown on Poor Indoor Air Quality
Consider dust mites, pet dander, and mold. Severe reactions to dust mites resemble asthma, making the sufferer struggle to breathe; people with severe reactions to pet dander can lose significant lung function over time; and those who have a high sensitivity to mold spores can also experience asthma-like symptoms, including wheezing and labored breathing.
Even if you don’t have these high sensitivities, though, it’s likely someone in your family does. Respiratory asthma is quite common, and most of us know someone who suffers from it.
Clean Air Can Only Help
Maybe neither you nor anyone you know suffers from asthma or decreased lung function in the presence of common household pollutants, but the benefits of clean air are for everyone. You’ll sneeze less and sleep more (or at least better)—your energy level and overall sense of wellness will rise in proportion to the clean air you breathe, and you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’ve done all you can to make your living environment or workplace as healthy as possible.
