Health Issues Associated with Bad Air Quality
Poor indoor air quality is not something to take lightly. At the onset, many people suffer from migraines, dry and itchy skin, bloody noses, and bad congestion. The irritation in your eyes, ears, and mouth, along with continual coughing and snuffling, may not be from a common cold or allergy, but from the pollution within your own house. Often, these discomforts eventually turn into much more harmful diseases that not only strike the respiratory system but can cause long-term damage to critical organs such as the lungs, heart, and brain.
Some of the specific illnesses and diseases caused by polluted air within your home include:
- Ischemic heart disease
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Lung cancer
Solutions for Fixing Air Quality
Depending on the layout of your home, as well as the type of allergens which are floating through the air, there can be entirely different issues of indoor air quality, which require varied solutions. Most of residential cooling and heating systems are forced-air, which means they blow air through duct work. Whatever HVAC system you have, it will have some kind of filter that is designed to get rid of the dust and debris that are collecting within your equipment. Of course, after time, these filters get dirty and must be cleaned. By maintaining pure filters, you can ensure better indoor air quality in your home.
You may also have problems with too much humidity or lack of humidity. The former tends to cause mold and mildew, while the latter causes additional dryness that allows dust to collect. Whatever the situation, our team is ready to step in and offer a powerful solution.
