3 Signs You Need to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

The air quality in your Menifee, CA, home plays a major role in your health and comfort. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Here are three signs that can alert you to the need for indoor air quality improvements:

Persistent Coughs

If you or anyone in your home suffers from a persistent cough, your home’s air quality could be the reason. High levels of dust and particulate matter in your home’s air can cause upper respiratory issues. The coughing is a sign that your body is trying to get rid of those inhaled pollutants.

If your home has this issue, installing an air filtration system can help. Those systems work with your air conditioner to remove as much particulate matter from your air as possible.

Severe Allergy Symptoms

If anyone in your household suffers from allergies, they may notice that their symptoms worsen inside your home. If you don’t have pets, this could indicate high levels of pollen, biological growth or cigarette smoke in your air. Those things can trigger allergy symptoms that cause discomfort and may even disrupt your sleep.

Excess Indoor Humidity

High indoor humidity is a serious indoor air quality issue. That’s because humid air is more difficult to breathe. It also fosters microbial growth throughout your home.

If your home suffers from persistently high indoor humidity, you may need a dehumidifier to correct it. You can invest in small dehumidifiers to target problem areas in your home. Or you can have a whole-house dehumidifier installed to solve the problem in your entire house.
