How Indoor Air Quality Affects You
The phrase indoor air quality is used as to describe the quality of air that people breathe at home, in public buildings and at work.
Indoor air quality can be labeled good or poor; either way the quality of the air affects health, physical and emotional comfort, and also the ability to function effectively.
Your air quality is affected by many things including the temperature of the building and the amount of humidity.
Other factors impacting air quality include the ventilation in the building, chemicals used in cleaning and, how well the heating and air conditioning systems are maintained.
Because we tend to spend so much time indoors, poor indoor air quality can be more dangerous than outdoor air pollution.
Recognize the Problem
Common signs of exposure to poor air quality, are headaches, coughing, wheezing, tiredness, or fever.
Some people may experience asthma symptoms or even pneumonia as a result of poor indoor air quality.
With professional testing, you can determine the level of your air quality, and the impact it is having on your health.
