Signs That Your Indoor Air Quality Is Declining Some people don’t realize it, but low-quality indoor air is the cause of many illnesses. Indoor pollution can lead to allergic reactions, infections, and other severe health issues. This is particularly true of those in at-risk populations, including the elderly, young children, and those with immune deficiencies. Several signs show a decline in indoor air quality, including: Sneezing Coughing Sinus congestion Fatigue Headaches Shortness of breath Fatigue Cracked, dry skin Sore throat Red, watery, or dry eyes Though it’s easy to attribute some of these symptoms to other problems, like colds, if they last for months, it’s probably because of low indoor air quality. If you’re breathing contaminated, dirty air, call the pros at Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling so you can clean things up and breathe easier. Improved Indoor Air Quality for the Entire Family At Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling, we have quite a few ways to improve the quality of your home’s indoor air. While each approach works on its own, the most effective strategy is to use multiple methods to remove pollutants from the air in your home. We offer the following indoor air quality services. Duct Cleaning and Inspection Over the years, your home’s air ducts collect debris and dust, especially in the fall and spring when the cooling and heating system isn’t used very often. The dust inside the ducts is blown through the home, where it’s breathed in or returned to the system via the vents. One of our trained technicians will do a detailed cleaning of your ductwork while looking for small leaks, which may let more contaminants into your HVAC system. We can also clean dryer vents, which collect a significant amount of pet dander, lint, dead skin cells, and other pollutants. Regular cleaning of dryer vents can have a big effect on the quality of the air inside your home. Air Filter Services Changing or cleaning your HVAC system’s air filters is the simplest way to improve the quality of your indoor air, but it is also one of the most overlooked. One of our trained techs will look at all your air filters and ensure that they’re replaced or cleaned. Humidity Control If your home’s indoor air is excessively humid, it may promote the growth of mildew and mold. When the air is too dry, it might irritate your eyes, skin, throat, and nasal passages. At Summers, we offer whole-house dehumidifiers and humidifiers to manage indoor humidity. The equipment is installed within your heating and cooling system and can be controlled via the thermostat, which makes it easy to control the humidity level inside your home. Air Purification and Filtration While a conventional air filter catches big particles, special air purification or filtration system will do more to keep your indoor air clean.
