How to Test Indoor Air Quality
Poor indoor air quality can cause a variety of different health problems for you and your family members. However, if you’ve lived with poor air quality for years, you may not know whether you have a problem or not. At Western Heating & Air, we recommend asking yourself a few questions to determine if there’s an issue with the quality of your home’s air.
Do You Have an Indoor Air Quality Problem?
One of the best ways to test for poor indoor air quality is to analyze how you and your family members feel when you’re at home. To do this, ask yourself the following questions:
• Do you constantly sneeze and cough while you’re at home?
• Do you or your family members ever wake up feeling congested or with a headache?
• Do you feel like your throat, nose, and eyes are always irritated?
• Do you feel like things get better when you leave the house?
• Does anyone living in your home deal with constant respiratory issues or asthma attacks?
In some situations, these elevated symptoms may be worse in certain areas of your home than in others.
