Winter temperatures often mean that people are more inclined to spend the majority of their time indoors. For some, this means increased exposure to poor air quality. The effects of poor air quality can seem like some other health issue, ranging from difficulty breathing to allergic reactions or even severe exhaustion.
If you’ve started to notice that the air inside feels stuffy, has a certain odor after you come back indoors after some time away, or seems like there is little to no air movement, you may want to consider addressing some of the potential causes for poor air quality in your home. Causes can include air conditioners that are not properly cleaned, heavy indoor smoking, poor ventilation, clogged filters, or malfunctioning heating elements. If you suspect that your home has poor air quality, there are plenty of ways to improve it. Be sure to consult a professional to see what your best options are.
