Your home is meant to be a safe space, a refuge from the pollution of the outdoors. However, your home actually may not be as safe as you think it is. One of the reasons as to why this could be the case is because of poor indoor air quality. If your home’s indoor air quality is bad, it can negatively affect your health, as well as that of your family members. Luckily, heating repair pros say it’s possible to determine if your home’s indoor air quality is poor.
Here are the signs that your home’s indoor air quality may leave a lot to be desired:
One way you can tell if your home’s indoor air quality is poor is if you can still smell distinct odors that should have already been dispersed, such as last night’s dinner or the nail polish that you used a few days ago. If you’re still smelling these odors the next day or even longer, this is a sign that you don’t have proper air exchange, which means your indoor air quality is poor.
If you or your family members begin to have health issues such as asthma attacks or allergies, this is another sign that your home’s indoor air quality leaves a lot to be desired. This is because dust, pollen, pet dander and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are still in your home, and breathing them in is affecting the health of those who live in your home. With that in mind, be sure to contact an air conditioning repair expert as soon as possible to see what can be done.
On the other hand, if you’re constantly cleaning your house due to excessive dust, you may have a dirty HVAC system that’s spreading dust all over your indoor surfaces. If you think this might be the case, have your HVAC system cleaned by a professional, and consider investing in a new air filtration system.
