Why Should you Care About Indoor Air?

How clean is the air you’re breathing?

When you want a breath of fresh air, most likely you won’t go inside to find it. This is because there are many pollutants within indoor air that can affect your overall health and well-being. Pollution indoors is very prevalent and is something that should not be ignored. Fatigue, headaches, congestion, and even respiratory diseases can be an effect of indoor air pollution. It’s important to know what causes this pollution and how you can prevent and stop it.

How is indoor air being polluted?

Nearly 90% of people are indoors all day. No wonder people need to go outside to get a breath of fresh air! Think of the most crowded places such as airports, office buildings, shopping malls, and sports arenas. Where there are many people, there is also a large amount of pollution. Within households, as well, there can still be a significant amount of air pollution. Germs, dander, dust, and pathogens are all contributors to indoor air pollution. These things can be common in the air but should be controlled and prevented as much as possible.

Did you know…people spend almost 90% of their time indoors. This is why the quality of your indoor air is so important!


How can indoor air pollution be controlled?

The answer is simple: bipolar ionization.

Ions are molecules that are electrically charged. They are beneficial to air quality as they help to clear away pollutants in the air such as bacteria and pollen. Ions are natural in the outdoors by the energy created from things such as a wave crashing. Bipolar ionization is the process of releasing ions into the air that cause particles to form clusters together. This is beneficial because filters installed on HVAC systems can then remove these larger particles out of the air circulation easier. Additionally, the ions released can help to deactivate pathogens that may be present in the air.

Regularly changing filters on your HVAC systems to catch these particles is important. At Moore’s, we will install bipolar ionization technology to your HVAC systems and duct work to ensure your building constantly has fresh and clean air. When you schedule Moore’s for regular maintenance, we provide checkups and testing of your HVAC systems to ensure they are functioning most efficiently. A breath of fresh air can be a reality while you’re indoors as well!
