Does anyone in your household suffer from allergies, asthma or other respiratory problems? We tend to think that our homes are sanctuaries against outdoor allergy triggers such as pollen, dust or hay fever. But did you know that often the quality of indoor air is not much better than or may be even worse than outdoor air? The quality of air inside your home can actually trigger allergies and annoying ailments such as dry, stuffy noses, dry skin and scratchy throats. Common indoor triggers include dust mites, pet dander and mold.
Indoor air pollution can arise from many sources. Here are some clues which indicate that the air inside your home is not clean:
Indicators that your indoor air is in need of attention
- You have begun to notice unusual odors.
- The air is stuffy or stale.
- You do not notice the air moving.
- Your air conditioning system is collecting a lot of dust or is faulty.
- The chimneys or flue pipes in your home are blocked or damaged.
- There is excessive humidity in your home.
- You notice mildew and mold in your home.
The Benefits of Installing Air Quality Systems in Your Home
During winter, the air inside your home will often become dry. This type of air not only leeches the moisture from your skin, leaving it dry and cracked, it may also dry your nasal passage and throat. Did you know that dry nostrils are more likely to suffer from nosebleed?
You can solve the dry air problem with a whole house humidifier. Humidifiers boost humidity levels in the air. Similarly, an air purifier removes airborne contaminants like pollen, dust mites, pet dander, mold spores and smells from the indoor air, leaving it crisp and clean.
