Is the Air in Your Home Healthy?

CHA_IAQ copyMany people today are concerned about the indoor air they breathe, and with good reason. Problems with the air inside homes can cause a whole host of illnesses and concerns for homeowners. What should you look for if you’re worried about the air in your home? According to the American Lung Association, there are a few telltale signs that will help you determine if the air in your home is unhealthy.

How can you tell if your indoor air is unhealthy?

First of all, take note of your overall health and the health of your family as well. Do you notice that health symptoms improve when you’re out of your home, but return once you come back? That is a prime indicator that your indoor air is polluted, and you need to look into what could be causing it. The American Lung Association indicates that the following culprits could be causing your problems:

  • Tobacco smoke
  • Mold or mildew
  • Improperly stored household chemicals, paints and solvents
  • High or low humidity levels
  • Poor ventilation of fuel-burning appliances
  • Water leaks and/or standing water
  • Pet dander
  • Dust or visible particles in the air

What does better indoor air mean for your family?
