As much as 90% of our time is spent indoors, making it especially important to understand indoor air quality. Do you notice you sneeze more or have headaches when you’re at home and the symptoms clear up when you leave? That’s a sign that there is an air quality problem in your home. Consider getting indoor air quality testing to identify exactly where the problems are so you can find solutions and start feeling better.
What is indoor air quality testing?
Indoor air quality testing measures a variety of factors that contribute to how you feel when you are in your home or office. These include the temperature, humidity, lack of ventilation, mold from water damage, or exposure to other chemicals.
Signs the air quality in your home is a problem
- You feel better when you’re away from home
- There is dirt or dust around vents
- Air smells stale, as if it isn’t circulating
- Changes to your health after a home renovation
- Mold in the home
- There is no outside air circulating in your home
Indoor Air Quality Solutions
Oftentimes people think a tightly sealed home will keep pollutants outside. While that is true, they fail to recognize that the air in the home will be sealed inside, allowing no fresh air from outdoors into the home. While outdoor air contains its fair share of pollutants, it is important to circulate the air in your home. When the air is not circulated, it can cause a variety of breathing, allergy, and other health problems.
We recommend installing a home air cleaner, which is installed in the ductwork of the home, keeping the air clean for you and your family. Whole-home air filtration systems remove particulates such as dust, pollen, smoke, animal dander, and tobacco smoke so you’re breathing the cleanest air possible in your home.
