Poor indoor air quality in Merritt Island, FL, has a negative impact on your health and well-being. Many homes have poor air quality without the owners realizing a thing until it’s too late and they notice these signs:
Having flu-like symptoms more often than usual is a major red flag. If you or your family members have frequent coughs and congestion, consider having service technicians install a purification system or performing HVAC maintenance on your system.
Asthma symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath and coughs are all more prevalent in homes with poor indoor air quality. Both ozone and particles of toxins tracked inside by house members trigger symptoms, leading to emergency room trips and hospitalizations in some cases.
Poor indoor air quality causes your skin to become dry, flaky, itchy and irritated. Household members who already suffer from skin issues like psoriasis or eczema may have more symptoms and flares due to the dryness in the air.
Certain chemical particles and fumes lessen indoor air quality, sometimes causing headaches or a feeling of pressure. Potential causes include household cleaners, disinfectants, fragrances and even standing garbage. To combat this, install a purification system and reduce the amount of chemicals you use indoors.
Increased Frequency of Illness
Do you feel as though as soon as you get over one viral illness you catch another? Poor air quality within your home may cause viruses and bacteria to move more rapidly through the air, spreading faster. This is the reason many people experience more illnesses during the winter when they’re cooped up inside.
