Your home should be your sanctuary, a place for peace and rest. However, a home with poor indoor air quality is an invisible hazard to your health and the health of your household. The air quality in your home can cause illness, increase dust, cause bad odors, and more. Poor indoor air quality can be the symptom of many things, especially external factors like air pollution in your area and wildfires. Luckily, indoor air quality can be improved with proper treatment. If you suspect the air quality of your home is poor, contact your local HVAC contractors at Spoor's Heating & Air Conditioning to schedule service.

Noticing that dust accumulates quickly in your home could be a sign that your indoor air quality is poor. Especially if dust builds up around air vents. If you live in an area with poor air quality or your home has many people and pets, you may need to take extra measures against dust caused by poor air quality. Use high-quality, advanced air filters and change them more frequently.
Unfortunately, a very common indicator of poor air quality is cold-like symptoms, including sneezing, coughing, and sinus issues. If cold symptoms are common in your household and persist longer than a normal cold, your air quality could be to blame. Contact your trustedHVAC companyto learn more about how to improve your indoor air quality and decrease these symptoms from occurring.
Worsening Asthma Or Allergies
If you or someone in your household has existing allergies or asthma that is worsening, have your air quality tested. Allergy and asthma symptoms are common signs of poor indoor air quality.
Mold and mildew thrive in humid places with poor air circulation. Poor air quality feeds mold and mildew with stale air filled with dirt, dust, and bacteria. If you can seem to beat the mold and mildew in your home, check the air quality, as it is likely a contributing factor.
Clean, fresh air should have no odor. Air filled with pollution, smoke, dirt, dust, or chemicals will carry a bad odor with it. In your home, poor air quality will cause lingering bad odors of mildew, must, and dirt that the source is hard to find. If the air coming of your air conditioning vents smells bad, contact your HVAC for an indoor air quality evaluation andAC maintenance.
