What Affects My Indoor Air Quality?

Does the interior of your home suddenly smell bad or off? Are your eyes, nose and throat frequently irritated as you move around your home?


If you answered “yes” to either of the above questions, it might be time to have your home’s indoor air quality tested. The air quality in your home is extremely important, as it not only determines things like your home’s scent and level of comfort but also impacts your physical health. If you think it’s time to check the quality of your home’s air and are looking for air quality testing in Central Louisiana, we here at Southern Air can help.


What Causes Bad Air Quality Indoors?

At Southern Air, we know the factors that could be affecting your indoor air quality, and we want you to be aware of them too. The quality of the air within your home can be greatly impacted by a variety of pollutants that might contaminate the air you breathe. Some important pollutants (that could be potentially tainting your home’s air) that you should be aware of are:


  • Pet dander
  • Mold
  • Lead and asbestos
  • Smoke
  • Air exchange rate with the outdoors
  • Outdoor climate
  • Weather conditions
  • The behavior of your home’s occupants


Knowing what to look for and being able to identify potential pollutants is very helpful in knowing when the air quality inside your home might be on the decline. If you think pollutants could be impacting the quality of your home’s air you should seek out air quality testing as soon as possible.


In addition to eye, nose and throat irritation, headaches, dizziness and fatigue, indoor air pollutants can also cause more serious health conditions such as heart disease, respiratory diseases and cancer. Have your indoor air quality checked today to protect yourself and your family.


Along with understanding and being able to identify some of the pollutants that could be contaminating your indoor air quality, it’s equally important to be able to understand and identify ways that you can improve the quality of your home’s air and ways that you can restore and maintain that quality.


Tips for Improving or Restoring the Quality of Your Home’s Air

There are many ways to reduce the amount of air pollution in your home. If you believe your home’s air quality is extremely poor and is affecting your health, you should reach out to professionals near you for immediate air quality testing.


In the meantime, here are a few easy measures you can take on your own to improve the quality of your home’s air:


  • Regularly clean any household air filters, filters in your appliances and air vents (clothes dryers, vacuums, vents in your kitchen, etc.)
  • Regularly clean your rugs and carpets to remove dirt and debris
  • Use dehumidifiers to reduce the moisture in your home’s air and prevent mold and mildew growth
  • Use indoor plants to refresh the air within your home
  • Change your air conditioning filter regularly and get regular AC maintenance


Engaging in these measures regularly can help maintain the quality of your home’s air and ensure that your home’s indoor air quality stays at relatively the same level.
