Can Your Indoor Air Quality Be Making Your Sick?
Indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the quality of the air inside a building or structure, including the presence of pollutants, humidity levels, temperature and ventilation. Poor IAQ can have a significant impact on human health, causing a range of symptoms and illnesses.
There are several potential causes of poor IAQ. Merts Heating & Air Conditioning offers indoor air quality testing and solutions that will meet your specific needs without busting your budget.
Substances such as dust, dirt and natural or chemical allergens in the environment affect IAQ and may cause a variety of symptoms, such as headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea and irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat. More serious health problems can also occur with prolonged exposure to indoor air pollutants, such as respiratory problems, heart disease and even cancer.
There are many potential sources of indoor air pollutants, including chemicals from cleaning products and building materials, mold and mildew and dust and allergens. These pollutants can accumulate over time, especially in poorly ventilated buildings.
One way to determine if the quality of your home’s air is making you sick is to look for patterns in your symptoms. For example, do you experience symptoms only when you are in a room, or do your symptoms improve when you leave that environment? If so, schedule an appointment with Merts today to have your IAQ tested and find an affordable solution that will work in your home.
There are several ways to improve IAQ. One of the most important steps is to ensure there’s adequate ventilation. Merts Heating & Air Conditioning can help. Call our office today. Regular interior cleaning can also help to reduce the buildup of dust and allergens.
