Warnings Your Home Has Poor Indoor Air Quality

Would you consider your home healthy? It may not be as healthy as you would imagine. Pollution can be two to five times more concentrated within your home than outside, as noted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Indoor air buildup floating through your home’s air could be a source of headaches and allergy outbreaks. Mold and mildew pose a potential health risk.

How Can I Reduce Indoor Air Quality Issues?

Avoiding indoor air quality issues can be quite easy with these 10 tips:

1. Free Indoor Air Quality Audit

Book an indoor air quality audit with Winters Heating and Cooling. Professionals can inspect spots that impact air quality, such as humidity, carbon monoxide and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Then we’ll discuss the problems we find and the steps to improve them.

2. Clean Frequently

Clean frequently to collect dust mites, which can worsen allergies and asthma.

3. Check for Secondhand Smoke Implications

Make sure your house doesn’t have implications of secondhand smoke.

4. Remove Odors

Use a whole-home filtration system to remove odors, versus masking them with air fresheners or scented candles. These pollutants include chemicals that can cause headaches or enhance respiratory illnesses.

5. Vent Appliances

Vent appliances that burn gas, including ranges and water heaters, to the outdoors.

6. Maintain Humidity Levels

Keep your residence’s humidity levels maintained with a humidifier or dehumidifier. Set humidity under 50% to impede mold and mildew.

7. Test for Radon

Test your house for radon. Ongoing exposure to this colorless, radioactive gas is the main source of lung cancer among people who don’t smoke, according to the EPA. You can buy a radon test kit online or contact your state radon program for details on discounted or free kits.

8. Install a Ventilation System

Install a ventilation system to swap dirty indoor air with cleaner outside air.

9. Limit VOC Levels

Choose green cleaning and painting supplies that are limited in or free of VOCs. Increased levels of VOCs can inflame symptoms for family members with respiratory disorders.

10. Install Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Put in carbon monoxide detectors near bedrooms.
