4 Symptoms of Bad Air Quality in Your Paradise, NV, Home

Daily activities in your Paradise, NV, home can spread airborne contaminants. This includes everything from pet dander and dust mites to biological contaminants. Pay attention to any changes in your home’s air quality and be on the lookout for these four signs that it’s worsening:

Cough and Congestion

Inadequate ventilation and air circulation can trap airborne particles in your indoor air, resulting in congestion. Inhaling these particles can lead to coughing and congestion. Check your AC system’s filter to see if it’s clogged. You should change it every 30-90 days.

Fatigue and Dizziness

Inhaling poor IAQ can result in fatigue and dizziness as your body attacks the trapped contaminants. If these symptoms become more frequent or intense, it could indicate low IAQ. You may need an HVAC service technician to perform a duct cleaning service to resolve a dirty ductwork problem.

Recurring Illness

Bad air quality can cause your immune system to become weak, making you more susceptible to illness. Recurring colds and flu could indicate poor air quality.

Although you may think of winter as the most likely season for these illnesses, summer heat waves can speed the spread of infectious diseases, too. Schedule regular HVAC maintenance, and consider installing air purifiers to reduce airborne pollutants.

Unpleasant Odors

Unpleasant odors caused by smoke, microbial growth and pet dander are also signs of bad air quality. If these smells persist even after you’ve cleaned the house, it could indicate that your home has many airborne contaminants. Contact an HVAC service technician to inspect your AC system for any blockages or leaks causing these smells.
