Maintaining your indoor air quality is crucial if you want to enjoy life to the fullest in Allen, Texas. Here are a few warning signs of poor indoor air quality and how you can address the issue so your family can breathe easier.
Monitor Your Health
If you suffer from allergies and notice you’re experiencing more symptoms than normal, a dip in your home’s air quality could be the cause.
Increased allergy symptoms usually mean dirt, dust, or other allergens have accumulated in your home’s air. To address this issue, you could install a new HEPA filter in your HVAC system. Just make sure your system is compatible with HEPA filters. They reduce allergens in your home so you won’t have to deal with itchy eyes and a runny nose.
Unusual Odors in Your Home
If your home has an unusual odor, it could be a warning sign that your air quality isn’t as good as it could be. There are a lot of reasons why your home could have a bad smell and dirty air ducts are one of them. After noticing an odd smell, you should contact an HVAC professional to inspect and clean the ductwork in your home so your air will be cleaner, fresher, and more breathable.
Look for Sources of Air Pollution
Your home contains many more sources of air pollution than you might realize, and identifying them is a good way to begin improving poor air quality. It’s likely, for example, that your home contains a variety of items with volatile organic compounds, which can be found in furniture glue, paint, and disinfectants. Removing these items from your house can improve your air quality.
