Indoor Air Quality Statistics - How Indoor Air Quality Services Can Help

NexGen Indoor Air Quality Statistics

Have you ever wondered about the quality of the air inside your home or office? Many people are concerned about air pollution outside the house, and rightly so, but indoor air pollution is just as harmful. With the prolonged hours we spend inside, air quality is important for our health and well-being. This article will discuss some of the statistics surrounding indoor air quality, its importance, and what services can help improve indoor quality.

Indoor Air Quality Statistics 2022

What is indoor air quality like for people around the world and in our country? We found some interesting data that is worthy of mention and concern.

Around The World

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 3.8 million people around the world die prematurely each year from illnesses produced by harmful household air that results from using solid fuels and kerosene for cooking. Of these deaths, 27% die of pneumonia and ischaemic heart disease. WHO reports that almost half of these deaths are among children of 5 years of age and younger.

WHO also reports that household air is the cause of many non-communicable diseases like stroke, heart attacks, lung cancer, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Many of these diseases are the result of using cooking methods that pollute the air with harmful chemicals.

In America

The American Lung Association also reports that in 2018, 41.9 million Americans were diagnosed with asthma. Poor indoor and outdoor air quality explains these asthma diagnoses. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, these statistics can also be presented by secondhand smoking, known to have caused 2.5 million deaths in nonsmokers.

Indoor vs. Outdoor Pollution

Air pollution inside and outside the home continues to be a persistent problem in many countries around the world. According to Our World in Data, out of the 7 million people who die from diseases caused by air pollution, 4.2 million die from outside air pollution and 3.8 million from inside air pollution.

The Importance Of Indoor Air Quality

The statistics surrounding indoor and outdoor air quality are both alarming and disheartening. According to the statistics we discussed above, the chances of contracting a disease resulting from poor air quality are almost equal inside and outside the house. This explains why indoor air quality is so important.

Air quality inside your home greatly impacts your and your family members' health. The chemicals produced while cooking or construction materials used in the structure of your home must be properly filtered in order to prevent toxic air. Though many construction materials are now made with safer materials, one cannot be too careful in ensuring safe air quality within their home.

Indoor air quality ensures that there are no harmful fumes or gasses inside the home or mold spores floating in the air. It provides a healthy home structure and healthy lives for all. If you're moving into a new home, make sure to ask about the air quality, the materials used in the home's construction, and the history of indoor cigarette smoking.

It isn't a secret that indoor cigarette smoking significantly compromises the home's air. It infiltrates the walls and stays permanently inside the house. Additionally, it causes second-hand smoking for those who aren't actively smoking a cigarette, creating many health challenges that include asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and others.

Not only did his team deliver promptly and on time, they were friendly and left with a professional install of my new A/C unit. I can’t mention the AWESOME price I got, but needless to say they can beat any deal, and will give you the fastest 1st-rate service available.

Yesterday I had NexGen install a new furnace and a/c system to replace my 30-year-old system. Their representative Jeff met with me the day before to go over the system that would work best for my home, and presented me with a price I couldn’t turn down. Incidentally, NexGen’s price was over $3,000 cheaper than all other competitors.

My call was promptly returned by Jeff and an appointment was scheduled for the next day. Jeff presented an offer that I couldn’t refuse! A crew was available that day and came, saw and conquered. I had A/C that evening at a very fair price. Highly recommend NexGen.
