That’s why Integrity Comfort Solutions offers a wide selection of air quality solutions to keep you healthy and comfortable in your home. When you choose Integrity Comfort Solutions for IAQ services, you can breathe easy knowing that the air in your home is clean.
What is Indoor Air Quality?
Indoor air quality is the quality of the air within and around a building or structure. It’s especially important inside your home because it’s where you spend the majority of your time. We monitor the air quality outside because we know how important it is to breathe clean air. For the same reason, it’s important to actively work towards keeping the air in your home clean.
Consequences of Poor Air Quality
Poor IAQ can have a wide range of short-term and long-term effects on you, your family and even pets. Short-term exposure to poor IAQ can cause irritation of the eyes, nose and throat; headaches; dizziness and fatigue. If you have allergies that tend to flare up indoors, poor IAQ could be the cause. Long-term exposure can result in the development of respiratory diseases such as asthma, heart disease and even cancer.
Threats to Indoor Air Quality
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)here are several common indoor air pollutants that can affect your home’s air quality, including:
- Dust mites
- Pet dander
- Environmental smoke
- Particulate matter
- Carbon monoxide
- Outdoor pollutants
In Houston, our homes are especially vulnerable to mold growth to the high humidity in the area. While you may not be able to see pollutants in your home’s air, you can look for signs of poor IAQ. Monitor yourself and other members of the household for the physical symptoms listed above, including irritation of the eyes, nose and throat. In addition, keep an eye out for:
- Dust buildup, especially around air vents
- Hot or cold spots around the house
- Unpleasant odors
- Low airflow from vents
