    HVAC maintenance agreements present homeowners with an easy way to save on seasonal inspections and tune-ups. They also keep you feeling more comfortable for less. Did you realize, though, the impact this has on your health? Probably not. It's easy to forget the importance of indoor air quality, but the quality of the air in your home can make all the difference.

    Signs You’re Suffering from Poor Indoor Air Quality

    Have you been dealing with a stubborn cold or allergy symptoms? Do you start feeling down every time you’re at home? If you can’t figure out why your health is going downhill, you might be a victim of indoor pollution.

    While we’re keeping better tabs on outdoor emissions, we often forget about the impact cleaning supplies, fumes from plastics and other materials and mold have on our health. What you think of as potential allergy or cold symptoms could be a reaction to these indoor contaminants.

    Poor indoor air quality leads to:

    • Headaches
    • Congestion
    • Sore, red eyes
    • Dry and itchy skin
    • Dry, brittle hair and nails
    • Severe breathing problems

    You don’t need to have black mold to be at risk. Thankfully, there are several ways to clean indoor air. A well-functioning HVAC system helps.
