Air quality is an important factor in keeping a healthy home. All homeowners should pay attention to the air quality of their home as it can lead to allergy flare-ups and allergy symptoms. Here are some signs that suggest poor indoor air quality in a home:

• Bad Allergies: if you have constant headaches, sneezing, watery eyes, red eyes, coughing, or any other typical allergy symptoms, you may have low indoor air quality. Allergens from the outside or inside may not be getting filtered out of your home properly, which is causing you to suffer with bad allergy symptoms even when you are indoors.
• Hot and Cold Spots: if certain areas of your home are warmer than others, your airflow is likely being prohibited by contaminants.
• Excessive Amounts of Dust: if dust continues to gather and settle in your home, this is a sure sign of poor indoor air quality. Dust will accumulate in places in which circulation and filtration is lacking, thereby causing air quality issues.

Poor air quality can be caused by many different factors. It can be due to pollutants, pet dander, dust mites, dirt, and grime, mold and mildew, poor ventilation, or a combination of theses factors.

Fortunately, an easy way to fix the issue of poor indoor air quality is to install an air filtration unit into your home. An air filtration or ventilation unit can help improve the air quality in your home by ensuring proper circulation and ventilation; by keeping out and filtering out pollutants and allergens, you can help the people in your home stop sneezing, coughing, and wheezing due to poor indoor air quality.
