Here in the heart of Central Pennsylvania we often overlook the importance of our indoor air quality because we’re busy paying so much attention to outdoor air quality. Pollen, mold, ragweed…we get the daily reports, rub our eyes, blow our noses, and sneeze our way through the seasons, but what many don’t understand is how important it is to control these contaminants inside our homes where we spend most of our time.
To help you better understand indoor air quality, its impact on your health, and steps you can take to help you breathe better at home, we’ve collected online resources from some reputable authorities on indoor air quality.
