Would you consider your home healthy? It could not be as fresh as you may guess. Pollution can be two to five times more concentrated inside than outdoors, as noted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Indoor air pollutants circulating through your house’s air may be a source of headaches and allergy attacks. And mold and mildew could be the source of a variety of illnesses or issues.
Though headaches and allergies may be caused by other issues, they may be a sign your home has indoor air quality (IAQ) problems. This is particularly true if you feel better once you’re away from home.
- Dehydrated eyes, nose, throat or skin
- Headaches and sinus problems
- Allergies or asthma symptoms that are more aggravated than normal
- Coughing and sneezing
- Dizziness or feeling queasy
An old heating and cooling unit might be a contributing element in indoor air quality problems, usually if it’s having difficulty to clean air, adjust humidity or keep temperatures dependable.
Here are further signs you may want to consider improving your indoor air:
- Too much static or mold growth
- Unwarranted grime
- Stale odors
