Most homes have poor indoor air quality. There are several signs that you have a problem with yours. Thankfully, poor indoor air quality can be addressed.
Consistent Cold Symptoms
Poor indoor air quality can cause symptoms that are similar to those of a cold or flu. Among them are sneezing, coughing, dizziness and nausea. You might also experience irritated eyes, nose and throat. If these symptoms last for weeks, the problem is likely indoor air pollution in your home.
It’s difficult to get a good night’s rest in a home with poor indoor air quality. One study found that people are 60% more likely to sleep poorly in a home with a high air pollution level. Problems include getting to sleep, staying asleep and snoring.

Hot and Cold Spots
Poor indoor air quality can cause air to not circulate properly as ducts get clogged with dust, dirt and other materials. This can cause some rooms to be too warm and others too cold.
You should look at the air vents in your home. If they have dust buildup on them and around them, it’s a sign you have poor indoor air quality. You may need to upgrade your HVAC filter to capture more dust and dirt passing through it.
Poor indoor air quality can cause bad odors to permeate your home. This is often the result of stagnant air. It can also result from high humidity or too much dust, pollen and dander. If smells linger in your home, such as after cooking, you may not have proper air circulation.
