Signs You Have a Problem with Your Indoor Air Quality

If the indoor air quality in your Poughkeepsie, New York, home doesn’t seem right, then you probably have a problem with your HVAC system.  A technician from D. Rohde Heating & Plumbing can test your air quality and fix the problem when we find it.

If Your HVAC System Isn’t Working Efficient

If your heater isn’t working very well, then you could have a problem with your air quality, and you may not notice.  An inefficient HVAC system may be signs that there is a problem with ductwork that needs cleaning or is damaged.

The Humidity Level in Your Home is Unusual

If the humidity levels in your home seem to be too high or too low, then you should have your indoor air quality tested.  Signs of low humidity are dry skin, plants that don’t seem to get enough water, and wallpaper that peels.  You may also get more colds or have more allergies.  High humidity can cause molds to grow and allow condensation on many things in your home.

Dust

One of the best ways to tell if you have a problem with the air quality in your house is the presence of dust.  If you notice that there is an accumulation of dust that seems excessive, then your HVAC system isn’t working the way it should to trap the dust and keep it from flowing back into your home.
A lot of dust is usually a problem with a filter.  You may want to upgrade to a whole-house filter if you are allergic to dust or overly sensitive to excessive dust.

Odors

If you notice that there are odors that don’t go away after some time, then you may have poor air circulation.  The poor air circulation in your home is usually a sign of poor indoor air quality.  Call to have your air circulation inspected to see if your HVAC system needs repairs or cleaning so that you have a healthier environment for the people in your home.
