Signs You Have Indoor Air Quality Issues

Not sure if you have indoor air quality problems? Look out for these issues in your home:

  • You rely on your air conditioner or heater too much
  • You have consistent humidity issues
  • Excessive dust
  • Uneven temperatures throughout the home
  • Stale odors
  • Respiratory conditions

A Few Common Indoor Air Pollutants

Are you wondering why you have these indoor air quality problems?

  • Combustion Gases: Do you have fuel-burning appliances in your home like a furnace, gas stove, water heater, or fireplace? These appliances all release a moderate amount of pollutants into the air. Carbon monoxide build-up is a real danger to your health. Make sure you contact our team when you need an IAQ boost.
  • VOCs: VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) are chemicals that are released from furnishing and other household products like paints, cleaning supplies, air fresheners, and other building materials.
  • Scented Home Products: This might be a tough pill to swallow but those candles, air fresheners, and cleaners can be sources of pollutants. Try to buy natural products with lower amounts of volatile organic chemicals in them.

Have our professionals come to your home. We can help pinpoint the source of your indoor air quality problems and eliminate them with our indoor air quality solutions.
