3 Common Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality at Home

Tired of suffering from daily allergies? Maybe it’s time to contact HVAC contractors to check the air quality in your home. You can’t see air, so it’s easy to assume that what you’re breathing in is clean. However, that's often not the case, so don’t be deceived!

 3 Common Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality at Home

One way to determine if you have poor indoor air is to keep track of health issues such as frequent sneezing, coughing, congestion or headaches that you and other members of your family may be experiencing. Poor indoor air quality could be the cause of these health issues. While these symptoms may seem mild enough, if left unaddressed health concerns such as these can become major inconveniences, to the point that they start aggravating other health-related issues.

Signs of poor indoor air quality include:

Dust Buildup

Dust buildup can be seen on air vents and various surfaces around the house. If you see thick dust buildup, it’s a sign that your air is full of particulates that are settling all over your home's surfaces. Aside from dust, there may also be other allergens in your home that you need to get rid of. You can stop or lessen the buildup of allergens by engaging professional HVAC installation services that can filter the air coming into your home while ensuring consistent air flow inside your residence.

Moisture and Humidity

If the humidity in your home is outside the ideal 35% to 50% level, your home will likely attract a lot of microorganisms that promote bacterial growth. Left unchecked, air-borne bacteria can make you sick. Fortunately, you can easily install a dehumidifier or humidifier to solve this issue.

Unpleasant Smells

With bacteria and other microorganisms growing inside your home, you'll eventually start noticing musty smells and bad odors. Excellent ventilation solutions can take care of this problem by flushing stale air out of the home. If your HVAC system is already old, consider this a sign that you’re due for a new heating system installation.
