The Importance of Indoor Air Quality
Do you notice that the more time you spend at home, the worse you feel? This can be a sign of poor indoor air quality. Allergy-like symptoms as well as headaches, dizziness and nausea that worsen when you spend time indoors are signs you may have an air quality issue. You don’t have to feel bad in your home! Call B&B Heating & Air, Inc. for an indoor air quality (IAQ) check and let us find a solution to poor air quality.
Reasons for Poor Air Quality
Homes today are more energy-efficient and there is less air leakage. This helps with your heating and cooling costs; however, when there is a pollutant in the home, it can lead to IAQ issues. Some reasons for poor air quality are:
- Old air filters and dirty ducts. Sometimes the solution to your air quality issues is as simple as replacing air filters and having your ducts cleaned. You may be surprised at how much dust, dander and pollen are in your ductwork.
- A poorly functioning ventilator. The “V” in your HVAC system stands for ventilator. If it’s in poor repair, the air in your home will suffer.
- Mold and mildew. It’s normal to have some mold and mildew in your home. However, if your home has a water leak that goes undetected, you may end up with mold or mildew in the walls, insulation or behind baseboards.
- Chemicals. If you buy new rugs or furniture or paint the walls, you introduce chemicals into the air. Sometimes they dissipate quickly; other times they linger, leading to poor IAQ.
