Breathing is a pretty interesting process. Humans and animals do it all day, every day, and it’s usually something we don’t think about at all until it becomes difficult. Now that you’re thinking about breathing, you’ve probably started to notice yourself doing it! How’s it going?
A lot of homeowners suffer from poor indoor air quality, which is often noticeably stale, stuffy, or static. Prolonged exposure to poor indoor air can lead to a lot of health issues like chest tightness, coughing, sore throat, itchy, watery eyes, and even asthma attacks. If you’ve noticed any of these indicators of poor indoor air quality, there are some simple things you can do to address the problem. One of them is identifying things that could be causing the problem. Is there standing water in your air conditioner, or does the filter need to be replaced? Are there animals in the house, or heavy smokers? Are heating elements well-ventilated? Once you identify potential causes, you can take steps to address them.
