Is the Air in Your Home Making You Sick

Sick Girl, Indoor Air QualityHaving some unexplained sniffles? Is your littlest one constantly coughing but shows no other signs of illness? It’s not the common cold; it could be the air in your home.  Poor indoor air quality may be the main cause of your family’s health concerns, including scratchy throat, watery eyes, and runny nose. If not taken seriously, those small health issues can become big medical problems. For instance, you could be facing respiratory diseases, heart disease, depression, and even cancer.

Indoor air pollutants may come from different sources, including a dirty air filter, tobacco products, pet dander, and dust embedded into the carpets. Want to hear something even scarier? Over two million dust mites live in the average double bed and millions more in carpets and rugs.

On average, Americans spend 90% of their time indoors. Of that, 65% of that time is spent at home. It’s time to take action and clean the air in your home. Here are some steps to breathe deeply and confidently:

Air Ducts Cleaning

Air ducts are naturally clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris. The particles are then released into the home. To enhance air quality, hire a professional HVAC team to provide a thorough air duct cleaning. An experienced team can help clear any debris, including ducts infested with vermin, rodents, or insects. Also, cleaning of the heating and cooling system components may improve the efficiency of your system in addition to its health.

Change Air Filters

Changing your AC unit’s air filter once a month will significantly increase your air quality. Clogged, dirty filters may block normal air flow thus reducing your unit’s system efficiency. With normal air flow obstructed, air bypasses the filter thus passing dirt directly into your home.  It’s one of the simplest ways to improve air quality.
