Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality
Poor air quality can affect your health and that of your family, so it is crucial to have your air tested and to find solutions that help keep it at its best. Here are five indications that you might need air quality testing services.
1. You Have Difficulty Sleeping
If you find that your sleep habits have changed or that you don’t get quality sleep, you may have air quality issues in your home. The higher the pollution in your residence, the harder it is to get a good night’s rest. You could also have problems with your home’s humidity levels, causing you to be uncomfortable.
2. You Feel Cold Symptoms
If you tend to have cold symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, irritated eyes, and even dizziness, you could have poor air quality. If these symptoms are worse or only show up when you are in your home, consider having your air quality tested.
3. Your Allergies Get Worse
As with cold symptoms, if your allergies are exacerbated while you are in your house, it could be because of pollutants in the air. If you open a window and it alleviates some of your symptoms, then you could benefit from an air purifier to help get rid of the pollen or bacteria in your home’s atmosphere.
4. You Notice Hot or Cold Spots
As you walk around your home, check to see if you have hot or cold spots in your house. These pockets of air are signs of poor air circulation that may be caused by clogged air ducts or by an HVAC system that isn’t performing correctly. There may also be an issue with filtration. If your air isn’t properly flowing through your home, it can mean that your air quality is low.
5. You Smell Lingering Odors
If you notice certain odors that linger in your home, such as food odors from dinner the night before, you probably have pollutants that are lingering as well.
