Most people don’t give a lot of thought about the quality of the air inside their homes until it’s noticeably poor. While the more noticeable effects of poor air quality include stale, stuffy air without much movement, the fact is that poor air quality can have a negative effect before the air itself is noticeably bad. For example, many people find that they have had a persistent cough, sore throat, chest tightness, or other respiratory issues for months, but it seems like there’s no underlying medical issue. Sometimes, these can be caused by poor indoor air quality.

To improve the quality of your home’s air, it’s important to identify the contributing factors. Are there smokers in the home? Is there standing water in appliances, like air conditioners? Is your bathroom moldy? Do you regularly use strong chemicals? Are heating elements well-ventilated? Once you identify the contributors, you could try addressing or removing them one-by-one until the air quality begins improving.
