Why IAQ matters

Most of us spend the majority of our lives indoors – working, sleeping, spending time with family and friends, binging on Netflix, etc. So the quality of the air you breathe during those hours is really important. The effects of poor IAQ can be immediate or take many years to develop. Short-term effects can be nose, throat, or eye irration, dizziness, headache, and a lack of energy. Long-term effects may be the development of heart disease, respiratory problems, or perhaps even cancer.
