Take a minute to bring attention to your breathing. Can you count how many times you inhale in a minute? Doctors at the Cleveland Clinic found the normal respiratory rate for adults should be between 12 and 20 breaths per minute. That’s somewhere around 28,000 breaths a day while resting. While many people are concerned about the effects of outdoor air pollution, we don’t typically think about how important indoor air quality is to our health, as well.
Most people spend the majority of their time inside at work, at home or in other buildings. This makes indoor air quality equally as important – if not more. Without proper air filtration systems, air pollution is a problem in any indoor space. Common indoor air pollutants include carbon monoxide, mold, secondhand smoke and others. Although being inside protects you from outdoor pollutants, indoor pollution is just as common and can be equally as dangerous and potentially more harmful.
Due to the fact that most of our time is spent indoors and the majority of our breaths per day occur inside, proper air filtration is essential to our health. Asthma, allergies and lung complications are just a few problems that can occur without proper indoor air filtration. In addition, indoor pollutants trapped inside continue to circulate throughout the air without a way to escape. This means you could be inhaling pollutants over and over without even knowing it.
