3 Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality (and How to Fix It!)

Certain contaminants and airborne pollutants can have a negative impact on the air quality in your home. We know your family’s health is your top concern. It’s important for homeowners in Houston, Texas, and the surrounding area to know these three signs of poor indoor air quality and how to fix it.

1. Cold and Allergy Symptoms

Most people write off a stuffy nose or a sneezing fit as the sign of a cold or allergy season. If your symptoms go away when you leave the house, it’s possible there’s more to it. Poor indoor air quality can lead to congestion, coughing, watery eyes, headaches, or a sore throat. If you find your symptoms get worse over time, schedule a duct cleaning with one of our HVAC technicians. We’ll clean the dust, dirt, and other debris out of your ductwork so air can flow freely.

2. Dust Build-up

Do you find a need to dust your home more often than usual? Excess dust buildup around your vents and on household surfaces is a common sign of poor indoor air quality. A good way to solve the problem is to have one of our qualified technicians replace your air filter and clean your vents. Clean filters and vents trap dust inside, while dirty vents circulate it throughout the house.

3. High or Low Humidity

Humidity levels are an important indicator of air quality. When they are too high or low, your house can feel muggy or dry. This can lead to allergic reactions or worsen breathing conditions, such as asthma. We can test the humidity levels in your home and install a humidifier, dehumidifier, or air conditioning system to help solve the problem.

Poor indoor air quality is not something you want to overlook. Over time, it can have a negative impact on your family’s health. Contact Davis Air Conditioning & Heating to have one of our trained professionals check the air quality in your home. Visit our website or call 888-710-5530.
