Is your home healthy? It might not be as healthy as you think. 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 circulating through your home’s air might cause headaches and allergy attacks. And mold and mildew can cause a host of health problems.
Even though health problems may be present due to other things, they could be a sign your home has indoor air quality (IAQ) issues. This is particularly true if your symptoms improve while you’re outside of your home.
- Itchy eyes, nose, throat or skin
- Headaches and sinus problems
- Allergies or asthma issues that are worse than regular
- Coughing and sneezing
- Light-headedness or feeling sick to your stomach
An outdated heating and cooling machine may be a possible element in indoor air quality challenges, usually if the HVAC system appears to be having difficulty to clean air, adjust humidity or keep temperatures dependable.
Here are further indications you may want to consider improving your indoor air:
- Too much static or mold growth
- Excessive dust
- Stale odors
