How Does Indoor Air Quality Affect My Allergies?
Wednesday, April 29, 2015
Indoor air quality

Here’s what you can do when indoor air quality seems to decline during the spring.

You might not know it, but your indoor air quality is affecting your quality of life. Most of us assume our indoor air is cleaner than the outdoor air, but that is often far from the truth. Something you might notice, however, is that your allergies seem to get much worse in the spring, and they don’t always subside just because you’re indoors. Your allergies could be affected by your indoor air quality.

What’s Outside Must Come Inside

Even though we lock down our homes and seal them up tight to keep that nice, cool, air conditioned air in, we’re not keeping everything out. As we go about our daily lives, we track allergens inside from the outside.

Things like pollen, dust, and mold come into our homes on our shoes and clothing, and anytime we open a door or window. And because our homes are so climate controlled, it is likely those irritants will remain floating around in the indoor air, until you breathe it in. Gross, but true!

What’s Inside Stays Inside

Are you allergic to pet dander or pet hair? What about dust or cigarette smoke? Anytime these things are in your environment, they have the potential to cause you to have an allergic reaction. What’s more, as you move around your home and you move or disrupt those allergens, they become airborne again and again, making your allergies worse.

What’s This Got to Do with Indoor Air Quality?

Most allergens are airborne. It stands to reason that as the spring moves in, all of those things you’re sensitive to will start coming into your home, and this affects your indoor air quality and your quality of life.

What Do I Do?

The most effective way to improve your air quality is with an air filtration system. It can remove up to 99% of all irritants from the air in your home, making the air in your house cleaner and your allergies better.

For the top options on air filtration systems to improve the indoor air quality in your home, call All City Heat and Air at 704-545-2000.
