How healthy do you think your home is? It may not be as fresh as you would imagine. Pollution can be two to five times more concentrated inside than outdoors, stated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Indoor air contaminants moving through your home’s air might be a source of headaches and allergy attacks. And mold and mildew pose a potential health risk.
While these symptoms could be the result of other issues, they could be a sign your house has indoor air quality (IAQ) trouble. This is particularly the potential cause if your symptoms improve while you’re outside of your home.
- Dry eyes, nose, throat or skin
- Headaches and sinus concerns
- Allergies or asthma troubles that are more irritated than you usually experience
- Coughing and sneezing
- Light-headedness or nausea
An old heating and cooling system may be a possible cause in indoor air quality problems, particularly if the HVAC system appears to be struggling to filter air, control humidity or keep temperatures dependable.
Here are further signals you may need to improve your indoor air:
- Too much static or mold growth
- Disproportionate dirt
- Stuffy smells
