Poor indoor air quality in your Johns Creek, Georgia, home could make you and your family uncomfortable. It could also lead to inconvenient, costly breakdowns that shorten your HVAC system’s life. Bad smells, excessive dust, and frequent health problems are common signs that your home has poor indoor air quality issues.
Biological growth often causes musty or rotting smells, and a burning scent could indicate a problem with your ductwork or electrical system. Pest droppings or dead roaches in your ductwork can spread unpleasant odors throughout your entire home. If the air in your home smells stale or offensive odors tend to linger in the air, you may need to change your system’s air filter or add an indoor air purifier. You could also require additional ventilation such as exhaust fans.
Dirty ductwork or a dirty air filter will increase dust levels in your house, forcing you to dust and vacuum more often. You should change your system’s air filter at least every few months. To prevent dust accumulation or other issues, have your heating and air conditioning equipment inspected at least once per year.
Frequent Health Problems
If you often feel under the weather at home but your symptoms disappear after spending some time outside, your home could suffer from poor indoor air quality. Many contaminants can cause asthma or allergy symptoms, rashes, fatigue, headaches, eye irritation, sore throats, or other problems. Poor indoor air quality can also cause colds, the flu and many other illnesses to spread more quickly.
