What is Indoor Air Quality? Why Should You Care?

Indoor Air Quality (or IAQ) refers to the air quality within your home (or any closed-off building/structure). Indoor Air Quality becomes poor with the increased presence of airborne particles, pathogens, pollutants, volatile organic components, and other invisible contaminants. Why should you care? Poor Indoor Air Quality is directly linked to discomfort, reduced productivity, and poor health conditions.

How to Improve Indoor Air Quality

What are some changes that you can make today to help improve the air quality within your home? Here a few:

  • Keep your home clean and dust-free.
  • Ensure your ceiling is rotating counterclockwise during the summer and clockwise during the winter.
  • Run a humidifier within your home if your indoor air starts to feel “dry.”
  • Try to improve air circulation within your home by keeping doors open or cracking a window (only when the AC is not running!).
