Three Signs of Subpar Indoor Air Quality
If you think that the temperature within your home is the only thing to worry about when it comes to your comfort, think again. While accurate and reliable temperature maintenance is certainly important, you must also keep the quality of the air throughout your home in mind. Low indoor air quality is more problematic and more common, than you may realize. Fortunately for you, the professional Indoor Air Quality technicians on our staff are here to help if your indoor air quality is lacking. Below you’ll find 3 common signs that you’ve got subpar indoor air quality in your home. If you notice these issues in your living space, give us a call right away. McCarthy’s One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning is happy to help you breathe better air in your home.
1) Dry, Itchy Skin/Frequent Sore Throats
When you first think of problems with your indoor air quality, you may immediately think of airborne pollutants. Another very common sign of low indoor air quality is subpar humidification throughout your living space. If the air surrounding you is too dry, you may increase the risk of illness because your body’s mucous membranes are drying out. Dry, itchy skin is common and you may even have issues with frequent sore throats.
2) Increased Dust on Surfaces
While you may not actually see pollutants floating around in the air, you can certainly tell that your indoor air quality is low if your surfaces are constantly getting dusty. If you are unable to keep your counters and tabletops free of dust, you could have high levels of airborne pollutants settling throughout your home.
3) Reduced Energy Efficiency
There are a lot of causes of reduced heating and cooling efficiency, and low indoor air quality may not immediately seem to tie into the issue. However, if there are a lot of pollutants in the air, they can clog up air filters and collect on sensitive components within your heating and cooling system. This can lead to reduced energy efficiency in heating and cooling your home.
McCarthy’s One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning can perform a thorough inspection of your home’s ventilation and air intake sources. In order to optimize indoor air quality, the best possible level of ventilation must be ascertained for your home and then established. McCarthy’s One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning will evaluate your home’s air intake systems and modify them as necessary to achieve optimal air flow. We’ll also check possible air pollutants within your home, like stoves and heating systems, and make an adjustment so that they’re operating at a safe air capacity. When necessary, we can also add air filtration systems to your home to filter possible contagions.
It’s time to put your family’s health first, and that’s where our indoor air quality solutions can truly make a difference. Give us a call today for more information or to schedule an appointment.
