Many homeowners are familiar with the health risks associated with outdoor air pollution. But, did you know that poor indoor air quality in your home can also be detrimental to your health and overall quality of life? One of the best ways to improve your indoor air quality is to install an efficient HVAC system in your home. Here is more information about the potential health complications associated with poor indoor air quality:
Short Term Health Complications
Poor indoor air quality is often caused by the presence of indoor air pollutants. When a person is exposed to indoor air pollutants, he or she may exhibit the symptoms of several immediate, short-term health complications. These complications can include eye irritation, sudden headaches, and tiredness. Other immediate health effects can include heightened instances of health conditions such as asthma. Often these health complications will pass over a short period of time. However, if the poor indoor air quality issue is not addressed, the heath problems will repeatedly occur.
Long Term Health Complications
In addition to short term health complications, poor indoor air quality can also cause serious, long-term health complications. With prolonged exposure to poor indoor air, a person can develop serious health problems such as lung disease, heart disease, and cancer. Often, the symptoms of these diseases do not show up until years after the initial exposure. To reduce the risk of these diseases, you can work with a professional contractor to improve the indoor air quality of your home.
