When you think about air quality, you mainly think about the outdoors – things like air pollution, for instance. Indoor air quality is just as important as outside air quality, however, and oftentimes it’s more of a factor in your everyday health. Indoor air quality is something you shouldn’t have to think about if everything is working how it should. On the flip side, if it’s bad, it can be critical to your health.
That’s where Service Wizard can help.
Signs Your Air Quality Is Poor
There are a couple of ways to tell if you are having air quality issues. Here are a few signs your body might be giving you:
- Frequent congestion
- Runny nose
- Frequent nose bleeds
Here are few signs your home might be giving you:
- High or low humidity inside – The humidity in your house should range somewhere between 35 – 50% for maximum comfort. With too high humidity, your home can more easily grow mold and mildew. With too low humidity, you can suffer from dry skin, upper respiratory infections and warping of furniture.
- Dust buildup around vents – Have you noticed extra dust buildup around your air vents and house in general? This might be a sign of an air quality issue. Chances are it’s more than an eyesore – it could also bother your allergies. This could be fixed with a whole-home filtration system.
- Odors – It’s possible you don’t even notice odors in your home because you’ve grown accustomed to them. Odors can be caused by mold, chemicals, pest infestations or a buildup of dirt and dust, which all point to indoor air quality issues.
- Inconsistent air distribution – Do you feel like certain parts of your house are always cold and others are always warm? Are the humidity levels in your house inconsistent? This can be a sign of poor air quality. A whole-home filtration system can help with these issues.
