Would you consider your home healthy? It might not be as good as you would imagine. Pollution can be two to five times higher indoors than outside, stated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Indoor air buildup circulating through your house’s air may result in headaches and allergy outbreaks. And mold and mildew could be the source of a variety of illnesses or issues.
Even though health problems may be the result of other factors, they can be a sign your house has indoor air quality (IAQ) problems. This is especially the potential cause if your symptoms improve once you’re outside of your home.
- Dehydrated eyes, nose, throat or skin
- Headaches and sinus problems
- Allergies or asthma troubles that are more aggravated than regular
- Coughing and sneezing
- Light-headedness or feeling sick to your stomach
A timeworn heating and cooling machine can be a contributing factor in indoor air quality concerns, usually if your systems is having difficulty to clean air, regulate humidity or keep temperatures consistent.
Here are a few other signals you may want to consider improving your indoor air:
- Too much static or mold growth
- Disproportionate dirt
- Stale smells
