    air quality in home

    The indoor air quality of your home has a direct impact on the health and well being of your family. When your home’s indoor air is contaminated by allergens or pollutants, the health and safety of your household can be severely compromised. To ensure that you are breathing clean and healthy air when you are at home, it is important to be on the lookout for the signs of poor indoor air quality. To identify when its time to contact your local plumbing and heating service for an inspection , here is a look at some of the signs of poor indoor air quality.

    Health Symptoms

    If your home has an air quality issue, you may notice that you or someone in your household shows certain health symptoms when they are indoors. Signs of poor indoor air quality include respiratory issues, such as coughing and shortness of breath. When you are not feeling healthy breathing your indoor air, it may be time to install an air purification system.

    Mold and Mildew

    When your home has an air quality problem, you may notice mold and mildew growing in certain areas of your house. When mold and mildew are left untreated, they can release harmful spores into the air. To improve your indoor air quality, you can take steps to clear out any mold.

    High Humidity

    High humidity can also be a sign of poor indoor air quality. When the humidity inside your home is at fifty percent or higher, this provides the perfect conditions for harmful particles to linger in your indoor air.

    Air Vents

    Enjoying clean indoor air takes a multi-step approach. In addition to having a good air filter for your HVAC system and an air filtration device, it’s essential to schedule regular duct cleaning services performed by an HVAC professional. For a full list of reasons why it’s important to have your home air duct system cleaned, read on.

    Cleaner Air

    Over time, ductwork collects debris, dust, and even mold. It is also quite common for insects and pests to leave droppings in air ducts. During duct cleaning, many HVAC professionals have found a number of dead insects and mice. In worst cases, vermin such as insects and rodents can make their home inside the air ducts, living for months or even years there. If you don’t want to breathe in all of the filth that may well exist inside your ductwork, schedule a duct cleaning service soon.

    Lower Risk of Health Problems

    Mold, which is sometimes found in air ducts , is another legitimate reason to have your home air duct system cleaned. Breathing in mold spores can cause serious health problems, especially if you are allergic to it. Dust, pollen, pet hair, and cockroach droppings are also commonly found in air ducts and known to cause allergy symptoms for many people.

    Improved HVAC System Performance

    Dust and debris are not only unpleasant to breathe, but they are also damaging to your HVAC system. Have your air ducts cleaned to give your HVAC system a break. The less strain on your HVAC system, the better the life, efficiency, reliability, and performance will be.
