Older Adults

Are respiratory issues slowing you down?

Let us help you breathe the healthiest air.

Your home is lucky to have you. You care about your home and, even more importantly, the people living in it. You’ve probably been there a while, and you plan to be there a very long time. You’re aging in place, and proud of it. You probably spend more than half of your time in your home. It is where you relax, recharge, and spend time with your family and grandchildren. Most importantly, you care about your health, and you want your home to protect you from illness and be a place where you feel safe and comfortable.

We understand where you’re coming from, and that’s why we created Breathe Easy Home. As you get older, your immune system is not as strong as it used to be, so you have to be extra careful not to get sick. You can take action to reduce the frequency and duration of respiratory illness in your home. You can sleep better. You can raise your energy level. Yes, you can.

It’s normal for indoor air to carry some dust, pet hair, pest droppings, volatile organic compounds, formaldehyde and mold spores. It’s normal for some outside irritants such as pollen, ozone, small particulates or car fumes to make their way into your home. But it’s unhealthy when these particles and pollutants get out of control. Where a strong, healthy body can tolerate many of these particles, a body with a weakening immune system is more susceptible to developing allergies, asthma, bronchitis, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). These particles can also give you respiratory infections. At a time of life when you want to live carefree, poor indoor air quality can raise your stress and lower your quality of life.

We can help.

We are experts at reducing the quantity of particles and pollutants in your home, and creating an environment where these particles are unwelcome. You and your family deserve peace of mind.

We also focus on controlling humidity. Studies show that keeping your home within a relative humidity range of 40 – 60 percent reduces the growth of viruses, bacteria and molds that cause respiratory infections and the common cold.

Better living comes from healthier air. If you’ll let us show you how we can help you with the healthier air part, we’ll be waiting to hear about the better living part from you.

Fact

A home’s air affects the quality of life of older adults.

Improving indoor air quality has a profound effect on the health of older adults. A 2010 study, Myatt et al., confirmed that maintaining 40-60 percent relative humidity reduces the survival rate of the influenza virus in the air and on surfaces.

And a National Institutes of Health review of 61 studies of older adults and household air showed, “a significant relationship to exposure to major indoor air pollutants and various short-term and long-term respiratory health outcomes such as wheezing, breathlessness, cough, phlegm, asthma, COPD, lung cancer, and more rarely lung function decline.”

    I've noticed a huge change in my son's health since last year. Since we've had Breathe Easy Home for a few months, I've noticed a big change. He's sleeping very well. He's basically been well. I don't hear him wheezing at night. I don't hear him congested at night. He's doing a lot better. I've noticed a significant change in him.

    Kind Words from Our Clients

    Our house feels so much better since Breathe Easy Home came in to help us. The air in the house is fresher, temperatures are more even in every room, and we can have a fire in the fireplace without having to smell it for days afterward. Now our tenant doesn’t complain any more about his nose always being stuffed up from the stale air. Thank you!
