Hansen Heating & Air now has the ability to conduct an Air Care Analysis, which helps to identify any issues with your indoor air quality. The main things that affect the air inside your home are carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, temperature and humidity.
The EPA has identified indoor air pollution as one of the top five environmental health risks. Poor air quality also contributes to lung disease, including respiratory tract infections, asthma, and lung cancer, and can greatly increase allergy symptoms. If you or a family member suffer from allergies or asthma, or if you have infants or elderly at home, indoor air pollution and its risks are a priority to you. Adults in good health can also experience symptoms after being exposed to indoor air pollution just once.
Some symptoms associated with Indoor Air Pollution include:
- Sore or scratchy throat
- Nasal irritation
- Dry, red, or watering eyes
Some common factors that could be affecting your Indoor Air Quality:
- Bedrooms – dust, pets, fragrances, dry-cleaning
- Family rooms – tobacco smoke, wood stoves, fireplaces, space heaters
- Bathrooms – plumbing leaks, damp flooring and carpeting, moisture, insect debris, viruses and bacteria, household cleaners, air fresheners
