You would likely be surprised if you were aware of how many toxins you may have just inhaled, including chemical vapors, microbes, mildew, viruses, bacteria, dust, dirt, pollen, allergens and more. All of these contribute to increased allergy symptoms, which could lead to at the least, discomfort in your home, and at worst, intense respiratory and sinus issues. But it doesn't have to be that way!

According to the EPA, indoor air can be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. ONE HUNDRED times! Consider the fact that you breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air each day. So do your kids. So does your dog. Seriously, people, we can’t take indoor air quality for granted. It’s time to make a change.

Your family needs to take steps to increase the quality of the air you breathe indoors. By taking control, you can:

  • Help you stay healthier. That’s right, you can Stop The Sneezes! And actually, 50% of all illnesses are either caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air, according to the American College of Allergists.
  • Decrease your home's energy consumption. How? Cleaner air improves how efficient your heating and cooling system is. Can you say “smaller carbon footprint” and “lower costs over time?”
  • Guard your investment. Improved air quality keeps heating and air conditioning components from corrosion, microbials, dirt and debris.

Whole-house humidification

The air in your home can be alarmingly dry, especially in Colorado. Lack of humidity in the air dries out your skin, nasal passages and throat. If you inhale dry air through your nose and mouth, this can result in nose bleeds and other breathing problems. You might also notice your skin is very dry, or furniture in your home becoming damaged. Wood floors suffer the most from dry air, and static electricity can be very uncomfortable for your family.

With a humidifier from Home Comfort Heating and Air LLC, your home, skin, and breathing canals can regain moisture. You might even save money on lotions and other moisturizers, like anti-dryness hair products and wood conditioners. Ask your comfort advisor or service technician about whole-house humidification.
