Your Health Changes

The air you breathe in your Richmond home can have a negative impact on your health. Some of the most common symptoms you may start to experience when the air quality is poor are irritating allergies, rashes, nausea, congestion, fatigue, and shortness of breath. If you don’t feel well when you arrive home, there’s a possibility it is due to trapped contaminants and pollutants. You can improve your indoor air quality by upgrading the HVAC system in your home. Improved and updated systems have the ability to not only provide heating and cooling but filtration as well.

Dust Buildup in Your Home

Another sign of inadequate indoor air quality is an excessive collection of dust around open vents, as well as general areas throughout your home. If you already have a home air purifier and you’re still noticing dust, it’s time for an upgraded filtration system. Dust mites contain pollen, pet dander and other allergens that trigger uncomfortable reactions.

You’re Noticing Strange Smells

A lack of airflow allows for stagnant, stale air to remain trapped inside of your home and in the vents. Blocked circulation creates an ideal environment for biological growth. A home air purifier is excellent for removing strong odors, as well as improving the air quality. Airborne bacteria and chemicals are absorbed and removed through the purifying process.

It’s easy to dismiss these concerns and write them off as common. However, it’s important to ensure that your symptoms aren’t directly related to the air quality in your home.
