There are so many things in life we take for granted, from our spouse to our kids to our dogs and our cats. We take for granted that our car will work when it’s time to go to work every morning, that our job will still be there when we get there, that our kids will go to college and have a great life, and that we’ll retire and enjoy the rest of our days. There are so many things we take for granted because, frankly, we can’t remember to be grateful for everything in this world. From shuffling your kids off to school to getting through your work day and squeezing in homework, dinner, and hopefully the gym, your day-to-day attention span is shot.

One of the things we all take for granted is clean air. One hundred years ago, our air was not so clean. In fact, our air pollution problem started when humans first began to congregate to big cities, looking for work, in the Renaissance in the sixteenth century. Up until the 1950s, the air in London was so bad that many died prematurely and a thick smoke hung in the air. Luckily, governments have gotten involved and made valiant efforts to clean up our air.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF CLEAN INDOOR AIR

  • Improved overall health and wellness. We all need oxygen to keep every cell in our body alive. Hence, we breathe in air thousands of times a day to meet that need. However, when we breathe in air that contains dirt, dust, and pollutants, our overall health can suffer. Breathing in clean indoor air results in cleaner lungs, better blood pressure, and a healthier immune system that doesn’t have to fight off airborne bacteria and viruses as much.
  • Reduced symptoms of allergies and asthma. When you breathe in allergens such as pollen, dust, or animal dander, your immune system may see this as a threat to your health. As a consequence, your body produces antibodies or white blood cells to fight off this perceived threat. These antibodies attach themselves to cells and then they release strong chemicals, such as histamine. Histamines and other chemicals cause swelling, inflammation, itching, and mucus buildup, or a runny nose. Thus, when you breathe in less allergens, your body produces less antibodies, which results in less histamine chemicals being produced. Thus, your allergy and asthma symptoms are thus reduced, which is a win-win for all!

There are many health benefits to breathing in fresh, clean indoor air. BCA Climate Control in Fredericksburg offers many services to ensure your air is as pure as possible. From cleaning your ductwork and ventilation system on a regular basis to analyzing your indoor air to see if you need a humidifier or dehumidifier or a HVAC UV light system, we can help.
