5 Signs You May Not Be Sick … It's Just Your Indoor Air Quality

5 Adverse Health Effects of Poor Indoor Air Quality

As the seasons begin to change, it is easy to overlook symptoms such as a common cold or allergies rather than attribute them to poor indoor air quality. Air quality is a crucial component of our health and contrastingly easy to overlook due to its transparent and odorless nature. The average American spends 90% of their time indoors, so it is important to pay attention to the signs of indoor air pollutants. Continue reading to find out the common misconceptions between the common cold and poor indoor air quality! 

Respiratory Issues

Respiratory problems are a common indicator of indoor air pollutants. If you begin to notice consistent unrest inside your home that is accompanied by coughing, congestion, sore throat, and sneezing, you may want to consider receiving an indoor air quality evaluation. 


Man with a headacheFinding the cause of headaches or migraines is never an easy task. If you notice that you are experiencing an influx of headaches while being inside, or in a particular space, this may be an indication of poor air quality. 

Asthma Flare-Ups

If you or a family member is experiencing an increase in asthma attacks with no change in routine, the culprit could potentially be indoor air pollutants. Instant relief is attainable with a medicated inhaler, but it is important to get to the root of the problem by contacting our ELITE team for an air quality evaluation. If these flare-ups continue, we urge you to contact a medical professional.

Flu-Like Symptoms 

Flu-Like SymptomsPoor indoor air quality can lead to a combination of symptoms that may be easily confused with the flu. While air quality is most commonly linked to respiratory issues, it has the potential to lead to other issues like dizziness, headaches, and watery eyes. Fortunately, these issues can be alleviated with an air purifier that traps common household air pollutants. 


If you begin to notice yourself constantly feeling tired, your air quality may be the cause. Long-term exposure to poor indoor air quality not only can cause fatigue but also long-term effects such as accelerated aging of the lungs, asthma, and bronchitis. 

Fortunately, indoor air quality can be quickly improved by the installation of air filtration systems, UV air purifiers, and duct cleaning by our ELITE team.
