Top Causes of Indoor Air Problems

There is often a lot of discussion surrounding our outdoor air quality and making sure it is as healthy as possible. Many of us even get alerts on our phones if air quality in our area is poor that day whether it be from smoke from a nearby fire or something else. Outdoor air quality is important but so is the quality of your air indoors. Poor indoor air quality can lead to acute symptoms similar to colds and other viruses or allergies as well as possible long term issues that can even result in death. You spend much of your time indoors in your residence and therefore can have a very high exposure rate if there is something in your home causing poor indoor air quality. It is important to be aware of what these causes may be and what you can do about them. If you are experiencing any of the following issues, contact Van Drunen Heating & Air Conditioning to see how we can help improve your indoor air quality today.

Proper Maintenance

Proper maintenance of your home’s appliances is extremely important not only to keep them working well but also to prevent them from eventually emitting harmful things into the air. Without proper maintenance things can begin to break down and leak harmful gasses. For example, out of date gas stoves are known to emit much larger quantities of carbon monoxide than when they are adjusted properly.

Habit Related Sources

Some of your personal daily habits and activities can affect your air quality. Some more obvious things like smoking tobacco or vaping releases harmful chemicals that severely decline indoor air quality. Other habits may not be as obviously harmful. For example, cleaning is something everyone does in their home and isn’t typically viewed as a negative habit, however, many cleaning products can leave harmful gasses lingering in the air which can decrease your air quality. Other habits like using incense or air fresheners also lead to poor indoor air quality. 

How To Help Improve Indoor Air Quality

It’s virtually impossible to keep out all indoor air pollutants, so try using these ideas to improve the air quality in your home:

  • Keep a window open for increased ventilation
  • Use an UV light purifier or an air purifier 
  • Keep up on appliance’s maintenance
  • Eliminate harmful indoor habits like smoking
