WACO, Texas (April 1, 2015) – Springtime brings the melting of snow, the start of warmer weather, cleaning and, of course, allergies. One way to cut down on the affects of allergies is by understanding the signs, symptoms and factors that lead to poor indoor air quality. Aire Serv heating and air conditioning explains why indoor air quality is important to understand.
Many factors attribute to poor air quality in and around the home or office. One of the more common reasons for poor air quality during spring is pollen. Other factors are temperature and humidity. If the home or office HVAC system is not equipped to handle high levels of heat or humidity, indoor air quality can be reduced.
There are a variety of factors that cause indoor air quality to be affected. Common factors, such as smoke and dust, reduce the quality of indoor air. An air filter left in the HVAC system for more than 90 days can affect indoor air quality because it can become clogged and will no longer be able to filter out pollen, dander and other airborne particles. Ventilation that is not installed correctly can also add to poor or severely reduced indoor air quality.
Signs and symptoms
Common signs of reduced or poor indoor air quality can be hard to detect. They are similar to signs and symptoms of a seasonal cold or allergy flare. Often times though, poor or reduced indoor air quality can lead to an increase in symptoms.
Benefits of quality air
An increase in indoor air quality can have an immediate impact on respiratory health. New air filters, dehumidifiers and vent cleaning can all help to better the indoor air quality of a home or business.
