Common Problems Affecting Indoor Air Quality
Here in Boise, we often get calls about homeowners wanting us to inspect their homes because they’ve been experiencing symptoms associated with poor indoor air quality. They often describe dry skin, sore throats, and even trouble breathing while they sleep.
Below are the possible indoor contaminants responsible for these health problems:
- Carbon monoxide
- Toxic vapors
- Dust mites
Construction and building products can also lead to fumes and dust being released into the air. Additionally, aging structures may contribute to asbestos and be potentially fatal if a person is exposed.
There are several things that should be done to improve air quality. The duct systems should be inspected, cleaned, or serviced in order to improve the air quality. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers can balance the moisture levels in the air while sanitizers can clean the air in the home. All of these things can improve respiratory and allergy symptoms while making your home a more comfortable environment.
How Can Humidifiers & Dehumidifiers Help?
Humidifiers can transform the entire indoor environment of your home. For example, if you are experiencing dry and itchy skin or sore throat, you may need a humidifier installed in your home. If you have a humidifier and are still experiencing those symptoms, you may need to replace the unit.
Humidifiers make sense for your home if you notice the following:
- Frequent nosebleeds
- Sore throats
- Dry skin
- Wood begins to split
- Wallpaper peels
- Paint begins to chip
The dehumidifier is ideal for treating high levels of moisture in the home. When the humidity levels in the home are too high, mold and bacteria can quickly accumulate. You may begin to see dampness in your floors or condensation accumulating on the windows.
Dehumidifiers may be ideal in these scenarios:
- Rooms feel stuffy
- Damp spots in carpet unrelated to plumbing
- Mold and mildew accumulation
- Wood rotting
- Condensation accumulating in windows and surface
Signs You Need to Repair Your Air Duct
There are several signs that your air duct needs to be repaired. You can tell that your air duct needs to be serviced if you see that it begins to break down or sustains some kind of damage. When there are issues with mold, your ducts may not be performing at an optimal level. Inconsistent temperatures in the home may also be another indicator. The temperatures may be uneven because the air ducts are unable to properly carry sufficient quantities of air. The air ducts may be in need of an inspection when there are high levels of humidity in the home.
