Why is Air Quality So Important?
When we think of our HVAC system, we usually think about it in two ways: is it keeping me cool in the summer and is it keeping me warm in the winter? If it is, then we probably don’t give it much thought at all until it’s in need of repair or replacement. But there’s much more to it than that. The quality of the air that comes out—whether it’s warm or cool—is also incredibly important to our health and the comfort of our home.
At Scott Heating & Cooling, not only can we help you with all of your heating and cooling needs, but we can also help you improve the overall air quality of your home or business. We believe everyone deserves to stay comfortable all year long while also breathing air of the highest quality.
Here are four reasons why good air quality in your home or business is incredibly important.
Reason #1: Poor Air Quality Can Aggravate Asthma and Allergies
If you or your family have issues with asthma and allergies, poor air quality can only make it worse. Allergies are a nuisance to deal with and asthma can lead to more serious complications. If your home’s air quality is poor, you’re not doing yourself any favors. Improving the air quality of your home or business can help alleviate some of the intensity of these issues.
Reason #2: Poor Air Quality is One of the Causes of Cancer
Poor air quality can actually lead to cancer, specifically lung cancer. As we breathe dirty, contaminated air, we inhale things that are detrimental to our health. The poorer the air quality we breathe, the more of a risk we are at.
Reason #3: Poor Air Quality Can Lead to an Early Death
Poor air quality has been found to cause issues like stroke, heart attack, cancer, cardiac arrest, and other issues that can lead to an early death.
Reason #4: Poor Air Quality Isn’t Good for Anyone
Bad air quality is terrible for everyone: adults, kids, pets, everyone. To keep your family or employees safe and healthy, be sure to do what you can to improve the air quality in your home or business.
