How healthy do you think your home is? It may not be as good as you would imagine. Pollution can be two to five times higher inside than outside your home, stated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Indoor air buildup floating 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.
While these symptoms could be present due to other issues, they could be a warning your space has indoor air quality (IAQ) issues. This is particularly the potential cause if your symptoms improve once you’re gone.
- Dry eyes, nose, throat or skin
- Headaches and sinus problems
- Allergies or asthma troubles that are more irritated than regular
- Coughing and sneezing
- Faintness or feeling queasy
An old heating and cooling machine can be a possible cause in indoor air quality concerns, particularly if the HVAC system appears to be struggling to filter air, regulate humidity or keep temperatures consistent.
Here are further signs you may want to consider improving your indoor air:
- Extreme static or mold growth
- Excessive dirt
- Stuffy smells
