The indoor air quality
of your home is important for a number of reasons. The air pollution found inside your home can be just as bad as and arguably more so than the air pollution outside. Air purifiers are a good way to keep a handle on the air in your home, but keeping your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems in maintained shape will also help the indoor air quality in your home.

There are many different things that can affect the quality of the air inside your home. The following are things to take note of when you’re considering ways to improve the quality of the air you breathe in your home:
Incoming air - the air coming into your home from heating or ventilation systems can have particulates and allergens in it. If your filters are not working properly on your HVAC systems, these things won’t be filtered out, and your indoor air quality will be compromised.
- Humidity - the humidity levels of your home aren’t necessarily as dangerous as some of the other things in the air, but high levels of humidity for a prolonged period of time can cause damage. High levels of humidity cause mold to grow. If you notice mold in your home, it can also be hiding in the heating and cooling system, where you can’t see it.
- Gases - Gases are dangerous to have in your home. If your ventilation systems aren’t working correctly, you may be in for trouble. Tobacco smoke, radon, and the gas given off by gas burning furnaces and stoves can be harmful to you and your family. Any cleaning solutions or chemicals used in your home can give off unpleasant gases as well. It’s important to make sure you HVAC systems are in working order for this reason. The name for the types of gases that are found indoors and can harm you is VOC’s, or volatile organic compounds.
These and other things can affect the indoor air quality of your home, but as long as you are careful and keep up on maintenance of the ventilation of your house, you shouldn’t run into any problems. You can also purchase an air purifier to help you further.
If the indoor air quality of your home is poor, you can suffer different health effects. If you have asthma or an immune-attacking disease, particles, dander, and mold in the air can make you very sick. If you have lung problems, they can be agitated by tobacco smoke in the air, pet dander, and allergens from outdoors being blown in by heating or cooling systems. Headache, dizziness, feeling sleepy, coughing, and other problems can be attributed to poor indoor air quality inside your home. With modern technology making homes more insulated and sealed better, the air that hangs around in your home stays there for a longer time in the past. It’s important to keep this air clean, because you breathe it for awhile.
Give your home and family the best indoor air quality possible.
