The Effects of Poor Indoor Air Quality
As previously mentioned, indoor air quality is incredibly important for the comfort and health of all occupants. Poor ventilation and airflow can lead to an increase in harmful contaminants in the air, which can have a number of negative effects.
Poor indoor air quality can lead to:
- Increased frequency of sickness and colds
- Greater severity of asthma and allergy symptoms
- Shortness of breath and sinus congestion
- Dry or irritated eyes, nose, and/or throat
- Nausea, dizziness, and fatigue
Indoor air quality is particularly important if there are smokers in your home or if you have indoor pets. However, even without these factors, it is still wise to consider installing an indoor air quality system in order to eliminate some of the negative consequences of poor indoor air quality.
How to Improve Indoor Air Quality
There are several ways that you can improve the quality of the air inside your Los Angeles home or commercial space:
- Regular HVAC Maintenance: Scheduling regular maintenance for your HVAC system can help reduce the amount of particles and contaminants that are able to circulate around your home or business.
- Change HVAC Filters Often: The more you use your heater and AC, the more often you should change or clean the filters. This is a simple but often neglected way that you can improve the quality of the air inside your home.
- Install an Air Purification System: With several designs to choose from, air purification systems can remove up 99% of harmful pollutants from the air inside your home. This protects your home, your furniture, and your health.
- Use a Humidifier/Dehumidifier: Too little or too much humidity can have a negative effect on your health and can even cause damage to your furniture/belongings. A whole-home humidifier/dehumidifier is the best way to ensure proper indoor humidity levels.
- Schedule Duct Cleaning: Over time, your ducts accumulate tons of dirt, dust, pet dander, mold, and air contaminants. These pollutants build up in your ducts and then are circulated throughout your home when your HVAC systems are in use. Having your ducts cleaned takes care of these pollutants and helps your HVAC systems circulate fresher, cleaner, healthier air.
- Purchase an Air Scrubber: Indoor air is packed full of pollutants and allergens that can cause plenty of irritation, especially for those with allergies, asthma, and breathing problem. Air scrubbers reduce up to 97% contaminants, remove odors, purify and reduce irritating particles, and extend the lifespan of your HVAC systems.
