3 Signs Your Indoor Air Quality Is Suffering

June 29, 2020

The quality of your indoor air can have a real impact on your overall quality of life and health. Understanding the potential impact of indoor air quality (IAQ) on your health and comfort can help you to make the most positive choices for yourself and your family in the El Paso, Texas, metropolitan area. Here are three signs that your indoor air may need improvement this year.

Increased Illnesses Among Family Members

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, poor IAQ has been associated with a number of health problems, including the following:

  • Headaches, dizziness and fatigue
  • Respiratory illnesses to include lung cancer and emphysema
  • Heart disease
  • Allergic responses to dust mites and pet dander
  • Increased instances of colds and minor respiratory issues

If you or your family members are experiencing any of these health conditions, poor IAQ could be partly or entirely to blame. Taking steps to correct issues with the quality of your indoor air can reduce illnesses and help your family to breathe more easily during every season of the year.

Dusty Surfaces and Vents

If you notice dust building up on tabletops, counters or in and around your ductwork, this could be a sign of inadequate filtration, which can often contribute to poor air quality inside your home. Dust and particulates have been identified as triggers for asthma attacks and allergies, which can have a real impact on the people you care about most.

Growth of Mold or Mildew

High humidity inside your home is often linked to increased growth of mold and mildew. Adding a dehumidifier to your air conditioning system will typically reduce the moisture in the air that contributes to mold and mildew growth. This can help you enjoy the healthiest environment for yourself and your family and can protect the value of your El Paso home.
