Is your home healthy? It may not be as fresh as you would imagine. Pollution can be two to five times worse inside than outside your home, as noted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Indoor air buildup moving through your house’s air may cause headaches and allergy outbreaks. And mold and mildew can cause a host of health problems.
Though headaches and allergies can be caused by other things, they could be an indicator your house has indoor air quality (IAQ) issues. This is likely true if you feel better while you’re away from home.
- Dehydrated eyes, nose, throat or skin
- Headaches and sinus issues
- Allergies or asthma troubles that are more aggravated than regular
- Coughing and sneezing
- Dizziness or nausea
An outdated heating and cooling system could be a potential element in indoor air quality problems, usually if your systems is having problems to clean air, control humidity or keep temperatures dependable.
Here are some additional indications you may choose to evaluate your indoor air:
- Extreme static or mold growth
- Unwarranted grime
- Stale smells
