Indoor Air Quality Should Be a Priority in Your Home
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is the air quality in and around structures and buildings, relating specifically to the comfort and health of the occupants. Health effects from indoor air pollution can be experienced immediately following exposure or, possibly, months or years later.
These include irritation of the nose, eyes, and throat, dizziness, headaches, and fatigue. These types of immediate effects are usually treatable and short-term. Some long-term effects can show up after a number or years or only after repeated long-term exposure. These effects, which include heart disease, respiratory diseases and cancer, can be fatal or debilitating.
Signs Your Indoor Air Quality Needs Improvement
Allergies: Many people experience allergies in response to concentrations of dust, pollen and other irritants that can be more concentrated in enclosed spaces. Possible symptoms include sneezing, coughing, bloody noses, watery eyes, congestion and headaches.
New or unusual symptoms: Some contaminants like toxic mold spores, asbestos and other various hazardous chemicals can have an extreme effect on your health. If you notice nausea, dizziness, fevers, rashes, fatigue chills, muscle pain, vomiting, hearing loss or shortness, then you may be dealing with an extreme issue.
Home improvements or repairs: If you have recently done any repairs or renovations such as replacing the flooring, painted or made any other major renovations, you may have noxious chemicals in your home. These chemicals can amass in your HVAC system and then get circulated throughout your home.
Discrepancies in air distribution: If one area of your home is warmer or colder than another, you might have a problem in your system that might be affecting the airflow. This affects not just the temperature in each area, but also the overall air quality. Additionally, you want to take note of the humidity levels of differing spots in your home. Dryness or mugginess at different times through the year may be a sign that you have poor indoor air quality.

There are millions of microscopic particles that float around in the air all the time. The ones that you can see are not always the problem. 98% percent of all airborne particles measure below 1 micron in size and are invisible.
