Keep your home and family healthy with air purification systems, installed by your trusted Horizon team.

What is Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)?

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce your risk of indoor health concerns.

Common examples of indoor pollutants include pet dander and dust mites, chemical vapors and odors, or germs, bacteria, or other living microorganisms.

Indoor air pollutants may cause serious health concerns, such as:

  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Sneezing
  • Coughing
  • Eye and skin irritations
  • Congestion
  • Headaches
  • Allergic reactions
  • Respiratory tract infections
  • Asthma

The EPA – States that indoor air is one of the top five environmental health risks of our time and the levels of hazardous pollutants in indoor air have been found to be up to 60 times greater than outdoor air.

American College of Allergist & Asthma – States that 40% – 50% of all illnesses are caused by polluted indoor air.

The Center for Disease Control – Offers Guidelines for using equipment that we use on a regular basis to disinfect and clean the air.
