How healthy do you think your home is? It could not be as good as you think. Pollution can be two to five times higher inside than outdoors, stated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Indoor air contaminants circulating through your home’s air could result in headaches and allergy attacks. And mold and mildew can cause a host of health problems.
Though headaches and allergies may be present due to other things, they can be an indicator your space has indoor air quality (IAQ) trouble. This is especially true if it goes away when you’re outside of your home.
- Dry eyes, nose, throat or skin
- Headaches and sinus issues
- Allergies or asthma symptoms that are more irritated than regular
- Coughing and sneezing
- Dizziness or nausea
An old heating and cooling unit can be a possible factor in indoor air quality concerns, usually if your systems is struggling to purify air, regulate humidity or keep temperatures steady.
Here are some additional indications you may want to consider improving your indoor air:
- Extreme static or mold growth
- Disproportionate dirt
- Stuffy smells
