Proper air circulation and good air quality are important not only for your comfort, but also for your health. There are many ways that stale, stagnant, and otherwise unpleasant air can damage your respiratory system. Here are a few signs that poor indoor air quality in your home or workplace is affecting your health:
? Inflamed Allergies
There are many pollutants and allergens in the air outside, as well as inside. A good air conditioning system will have a strong filter to remove nearly all harmful particles from the air and allow you to breathe easily. If such a system is not in place, you may experience the symptoms of a light to severe allergy attack. If you are experiencing unexplained allergy symptoms, like watery eyes, congestion, headaches, or sneezing, then you may have poor air quality.
? Triggered Asthma
A lot of contaminants in the air, such as mold, pollen, and dust, can trigger painful symptoms in asthmatics. Poor filtering can lead to poor indoor air quality, which means that the air in your home or office can irritate asthma, creating an unhealthy, unpleasant and even dangerous environment. Better air conditioning and filtration can improve air quality and reduce the risk of asthma attacks.
? Serious Illness
Poor air quality can be the result of moisture and mold. As well as irritating allergies and asthma, some types of mold can cause more serious health problems. Black mold has been known to lead to certain respiratory diseases and may also be carcinogenic. If you have experienced any respiratory symptoms or headaches, then you should make improving your air quality a priority.
