Indoor Air Quality 101

September 2, 2020 | Blog

When it comes to the air inside your home, the majority of people care the most about whether it’s nice and cool — being comfortable is the top priority. What many people don’t think about is the quality of their air and the importance of having clean air inside. Let’s talk about why having good indoor air quality is so important and how to tell if you have poor air quality.

Why is indoor air quality important?

The air we breathe is made of more than just oxygen, containing a variety of chemical and biological pollutants. The presence of these air pollutants — which can come from fuel-burning appliances, tobacco products, cleaning products and more — can cause a lot of problems in a home, especially if there isn’t adequate ventilation. You’d be surprised what can build up in your home’s air and what those pollutants can do to your health.

Short-term exposure to air pollutants can cause eye and airway irritation, headaches, dizziness and fatigue. While these symptoms are immediately treatable, exposure over time can lead to asthma and allergies. Long-term exposure to pollutants can cause respiratory and heart diseases, and it can even cause cancer.

Signs of Unclean Air

How can you tell that your air is unclean when it’s impossible to see? It’s easier than you think. Keep an eye out for these sign of poor air quality:

  • Dust buildup around vents and in the air
  • Mold and mildew
  • Unpleasant odors

Signs of poor air quality can often be seen in your health, as well. If you notice the following symptoms, your home likely has bad air quality:

  • Dryness or irritation of skin, eyes or airways
  • Headaches or dizziness
  • Fatigue or shortness of breath
  • Sinus congestion, coughing or sneezing
  • Allergies that flare up at home but not elsewhere

Benefits of Air Purification

Luckily, air purification systems can improve indoor air quality drastically, leaving you with cleaner, healthier air. Air cleaners and UV light kits remove chemicals and particles from the air in your home, eliminating allergens, reducing odors, making it easier to breathe and even bringing better sleep. These systems can even be connected directly to your HVAC system, distributing clean air throughout the house without being seen.
