Providing your family with a comfortable home begins with maintaining healthy indoor air quality in your Rio Rico, Arizona, home. Look out for the following symptoms of poor indoor air quality:
Worsening Allergies or Asthma
If you notice you or your family’s allergies or asthma symptoms growing worse, it may be due to poor indoor air quality. When your family’s coughing, sneezing, and itchy throats are more common or severe than usual, it may be time to have your HVAC system checked to make sure it’s providing your family with clean air.
Are you finding that you have to dust more often? It may be time for an HVAC system cleaning, especially if you have ducts. Over time, ducts get dirty as they do their job.
Dry Skin and Coughing
Dry air can cause problems for you and your family, especially in the winter. If you notice an uptick in coughing or itchy dry skin, it may be due to a lack of moisture in your home’s air. Consider using a portable humidifier or installing a whole-home humidifier to your HVAC system.
If you’re renovating or your house is next to a construction site, then your air quality might take a turn for the worse until the job is completed. Try to complete home projects when the house is empty or keep your windows and doors closed until the project next door is complete.
An unusual smell could be a sign that something could be affecting your indoor air quality. Whether it’s dirty ductwork, a malfunctioning unit, or something else, it’s a good idea to schedule a maintenance visit from an HVAC technician.
