The average person takes around 20,000 breaths per day, approximately 7,300,000 breaths per year, or 547,500,000 breaths in their life. Ninety percent of those lifetime breaths are taken in an indoor space like your office or home.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside our homes is 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air outside. If you do not have the proper indoor air equipment, you are the first and only line of defense against these pollutants.
In fact, according to the EPA, indoor air health problems are an issue for occupants in 8 out of 10 homes. Your home and office's indoor air is likely saturated with airborne pollution. Allergens, dust, airborne viruses, volatile organic compounds, radon, among many other microscopic airborne pollutants comprise most indoor spaces. This phenomenon is known as sick building syndrome.
Some common symptoms of sick building syndrome are sneezing, stuffed nose, coughing, respiratory issues, and fatigue. Sick building syndrome can exacerbate or trigger more serious ailments like asthma, cardiovascular disease, COPD, and lung cancer.
