Living in and around a major city means living with the threat of air pollution. But did you know that the air inside your home can be even more polluted than the air outside? Poor indoor air quality can be harmful to your family and your home.
Ensuring healthy air quality in your home often requires taking proactive steps. Carpet, pets, bedding, cleaning products, inadequate ventilation, and high humidity levels can all increase some of the pollutants in your home. So how do you determine the problem, and what can you do about it?
With more than 30 years of experience in the industry, Thomas Hoffmann Air Conditioning & Heating has comprehensive indoor air quality solutions. We offer a full line of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) solutions, including air purifiers, humidifiers, dehumidifiers, germicidal UV lights, and ventilation systems.

Causes of Poor Indoor Air Quality
Once you understand the underlying issues, it’s easier to take charge of your home’s indoor air quality. In many instances, we innocently bring things into our home that negatively affect our indoor air quality. In other cases, our habits contribute to the problem. Some of the common causes include:
- Household cleaning supplies – While it’s important to keep your house clean, some of the chemicals in certain cleaning supplies circulate in the air and cause indoor air pollution.
- Cigarette smoke – There are hundreds of chemicals in tobacco products. When emitted into your home, they disrupt your indoor air quality.
- Mold & Mildew – If there is moisture in the air, it’s likely that you have mold or mildew growing somewhere inside your home. The longer these linger in your home, the more spores that are released into the air you breathe.
- Dust Mites & Pollen – These pollutants continuously compromise the air we breathe. Clutter, pets, and other things contribute to these issues.
- Chemicals – Polyurethane, formaldehyde, polybrominated biphenyl, to name a few. Chemicals are in many consumer products that we bring into our homes, such as plastics, electronics, clothing, furniture, carpet, and more.
- Inadequate ventilation – Not having adequate ventilation can increase air pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and not carrying indoor pollutants out of the house.
Symptoms of Poor Indoor Air Quality
Everyone is different; therefore, poor indoor air quality does not affect everyone in the same way. People who have asthma, allergies, and other respiratory issues, are typically the first to develop symptoms associated with poor IAQ. The symptoms are often manifest gradually and can easily be attributed to other causes.
Some of the signs to look for include:
- Dry skin
- Throat, nose, and eye irritations
- Persistent coughing when at home
- Headache and fatigue
- Dizziness and nausea
