Signs Your Home Has Low Indoor Air Quality

How healthy do you think your home is? It could not be as good as you think. Pollution can be two to five times worse inside than outside, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Indoor air buildup floating through your house’s air might result in headaches and allergy flareups. And mold and mildew pose a potential health risk.

Health Issues

Even though health problems might be the result of other factors, they can be an indicator your home has indoor air quality (IAQ) trouble. This is especially true if you feel better when you’re outside of your home.

  • Itchy eyes, nose, throat or skin
  • Headaches and sinus issues
  • Lethargic
  • Allergies or asthma troubles that are worse than normal
  • Coughing and sneezing
  • Faintness or feeling sick to your stomach

Environmental Problems

A timeworn heating and cooling machine might be a potential factor in indoor air quality problems, particularly if the HVAC system appears to be struggling to clean air, regulate humidity or keep temperatures steady.

Here are some additional signals you may need to improve your indoor air:

  • Increase in static or mold growth
  • Unwarranted dirt
  • Musty smells

How Can I Avoid Indoor Air Quality Problems?

Preventing indoor air quality issues can be relatively uncomplicated with these 10 tips:

  1. Arrange an indoor air quality audit with Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning. We’ll take a look at areas that impact air quality, such as humidity, carbon monoxide and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Then we’ll discuss the setbacks we discover and how you can fix them.
  2. Clean often to collect dust mites, which can worsen allergies and asthma.
  3. Make sure your house doesn’t have implications of secondhand smoke.
  4. Use a whole-home filtration system to reduce scents, versus obscuring them with air fresheners or scented candles. These pollutants include compounds that can result in or inflame respiratory disorders.
  5. Vent appliances that burn gas, like ranges and water heaters, to the outside.
  6. Keep your house’s humidity levels maintained with a humidifier or dehumidifier, based on your family’s preference. Set humidity under 50% to impede mold and mildew growth.
  7. Check your space for radon. Ongoing exposure to this non-colored, dangerous gas is the top contribution of lung cancer among people who have never smoked, according to the EPA. You can shop for a radon test kit online or get in touch with your state radon program for details on discounted or free kits.
  8. Use a ventilation system to swap dirty indoor air with fresh outside air.
  9. Choose natural cleaning and painting supplies that are low in or free of VOCs. Increased levels of VOCs can irritate issues for family members with respiratory diseases.
  10. Install carbon monoxide monitors by bedrooms.
