Why Does the Air in My Home Feel Stuffy?

Achieving the right level of humidity in your home can drastically improve indoor air quality this spring.

Effects of low indoor air quality

While winter may be over, your home's indoor air quality may still be suffering from staleness. With the doors and windows closed up tight for weeks at a time in previous months, your home may be feeling quite stuffy. Add to that, the springtime issue of pollen slipping into the home, and the air you are breathing inside is likely less than ideal. It may seem like no amount of cleaning will get the house smelling and feeling more comfortable. The only way to get the home air feeling more breathable is to improve indoor air quality.

One of the fastest ways to accomplish this is to get indoor humidity levels balanced. Many people are surprised to learn what a drastic effect humidity can have on the quality of the air we breathe in our homes. Too much humidity in the home can increase the growth of mold and mildew, which contribute to dank smells in the house. Lots of homeowners find their air conditioners provide a bit of relief from moist air. However, turning to dehumidifiers to cut indoor humidity can make an even bigger impact.

Indoor air quality is a major concern for many families. If someone in your family suffers from allergies or asthma, the concern is even greater. The Environmental Protection Agency considers poor indoor air quality to be one of the biggest threats to the average American's health. The good news is the quality of your home's air is within your control.

Having air filtration and humidity control systems installed at your home will make a major difference in your home's indoor air quality. To improve your home's value and make the house feel less stuffy and more comfortable, Comfort Services encourages you to consider your options.
