The Four Elements of Indoor Air Quality
Some pollutants in the air are especially harmful for children, elderly people and those with health problems. Most of us spend much of our time indoors. The air that we breathe in our homes, in schools and in offices can put us at risk for health problems. Some pollutants can be chemicals, gases and living organisms like mold and pests.

Several sources of air pollution are in homes, schools and offices. Some pollutants cause health problems such as sore eyes, burning in the nose and throat, headaches, or fatigue. Other pollutants cause or worsen allergies, respiratory illnesses (such as asthma), heart disease, cancer and other serious long-term conditions. Sometimes individual pollutants at high concentrations, such as carbon monoxide, cause death.

· 72 trillion allergens enter homes daily
· Bacteria in air ducts cause 1 IN 6 ALLERGIES
· Toxins are 2 to 5 times greater indoors than outdoors
· 6 out of 10 households have temperature & humidity imbalances
· Indoor air quality is a top 5 health risk

According to the California Air Institute the most effective way to reduce exposure to indoor pollutants is to first remove sources of pollution or reduce pollutant emissions. When you have One Hour Air Conditioning install the MicroPowerGuard Air Cleaner and the Oxyquantum Air Purifier you can ensure that you have moved in the right direction to give your family a step up in lowering their allergic reactions and to also improve their health.

Children are especially vulnerable to secondhand smoke. It can cause or worsen asthma symptoms and is linked to increased risks of ear infections and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

According to experts, children are not simply miniature adults. Children are often at greater risk from inhaled pollutants, due to the following reasons:

· Children have unique activity patterns and behavior. For example, they crawl and play on the ground, amidst dirt and dust that may carry a wide variety of toxicants. They often put their hands, toys, and other items into their mouths, ingesting harmful substances. Compared to adults, children typically spend more time outdoors and are more physically active. Time outdoors coupled with faster breathing during exercise increases children's relative exposure to air pollution.
· Children are physiologically unique. Relative to body size, children eat, breathe, and drink more than adults, and their natural biological defenses are less developed. The protective barrier surrounding the brain is not fully developed, and children's nasal passages aren't as effective at filtering out pollutants. Developing lungs, immune, and metabolic systems are also at risk.
· Children are particularly susceptible during development. Environmental exposures during fetal development, the first few years of life, and puberty have the greatest potential to influence later growth and development.
