Indoor Air Quality Checkpoint: How’s Your Air?

Today is when you should take a moment to check in with your home’s indoor air quality. This is something that can get lost in the shuffle. Heating and air conditioning tend to be the kings and queens of temperature control. We don’t blame you if this is your central focus, but we do want to encourage you to broaden your horizons a little.

This is why we want to focus on your indoor air quality in Crystal Lake, IL. Today we’re going to talk about signs that you need help with your indoor air quality, the various options that you have with our professionals, and why professional care is important.

You Need Help If…

These are some signs you might need help from an indoor air quality system:

  • You’re coughing and sneezing constantly.
  • You’re noticing skin irritation and rashes. 
  • You’re noticing an uptick in headaches, fatigue, nausea, and more.
  • You have humidity imbalances (you’re noticing wood splitting, dry skin on the dry side, or mold and mildew on the wet side).
  • You notice unpleasant odors tend to linger in your home.
  • You have a significant amount of dust buildup in the house.

Don’t ignore these signs. Get in touch with one of us when you see them.

Indoor air quality is also about humidity balance. You want your home’s humidity to be balanced between about 30% and 50%.
