We’re all very aware of how things we can see and hear affect our household. A big mess or noise pollution from nearby activities are hard to ignore. Air tends to be something we don’t think much about unless it is too hot or cold. After all, you can’t hear it, and you’re not going to trip over it. But poor indoor air quality can have some very negative consequences in your home, and good indoor air quality has tremendous benefits for your house and everyone in it.
Here are some of the ways that having high IAQ or indoor air quality can positively impact your quality of life.
Air Quality Benefits Your Health
Dust, pollen, and pet hair and dander might be the most obvious things you would think of as accumulating in your air. You definitely won’t feel as well if you breathe a lot of them, and for people with allergies, they might have serious health consequences. But other, smaller particles can also be circulating in your air. Bacteria, viruses, and molds are also present in poor-quality air, and they can be very dangerous to your health.
Clean Air Means a Cleaner Home
When your air is full of contaminants, you’ll breathe in some of them, but others will settle on surfaces in your home. You may notice a fine golden dust on your furniture when there’s a lot of pollen outside, or silty buildup when weather conditions are dry or construction is happening in your neighborhood. Taking steps to improve your indoor air quality in West Monroe, LA can make your home easier to clean, and help it stay clean longer. It can also help eliminate odors so your home smells fresh and clean.
Poor IAQ Can Be a Sign of Inefficiency
When a lot of contaminants are making their way into your home, they are finding an easy route in. (Of course, some contaminants, like pet hair, come from inside.) Recognizing a problem with air quality can help you to solve bigger problems and possibly improve the efficiency of your home’s systems. Contaminated air might be coming from drafty windows, damaged or leaking ductwork in your home’s HVAC system, or areas where insulation is insufficient or deteriorating.
Investigating potential causes and coming up with a plan for improving your overall indoor air quality can dramatically improve your quality of life. Imagine being sick less often, having a clean home that smells fresh, and spending less money on conditioned air that just leaks out of your ductwork and doesn’t keep you comfortable!
