3 Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality
Collins Comfort Masters understands the importance of keeping the air you breathe in your home as clean as possible. Pollutants can buildup in a building that has poor ventilation and cause a wide variety of issues. If you’re concerned about the cleanliness of the air you’re breathing, there are several signs of trouble to look for.
1. Indoor Moisture
A poorly ventilated home can end up building up moisture. You’ll be able to identify this by looking for excess condensation on the insides of your windows. This can happen in both the summer and winter. Too much moisture can also cause mold to grow in wet areas. If you live in a dry climate, excessively dry air can also cause problems.
2. Health Problems
Particulates circulating around your home can cause many types of health issues. Whether it’s dust, mites, allergens, or viruses, particles in your air can cause disease, irritate your lungs, or make your asthma worse. If you’ve noticed that you’re coughing or sneezing more often than normal, it might be time to get the quality of your air checked out. Chemicals that aren’t being removed from your home can also circulate in the air and affect your health.
3. A Dirty HVAC System
Dirty air circulating around your home can cause the filters in your home to get dirty quicker than expected. If you’re having to change your filters more frequently than every three months, you might be dealing with an air quality issue. Dirt can also accumulate in ducts.
