Is Your Air Making You Feel Sick?

Air quality is not always obvious, but it can have huge effects on your overall health and well-being, especially in a city like Calgary. With its cold winters and hot summers, many Calgarians spend a lot of time indoors, relying on their heating and cooling systems to keep them comfortable. However, without proper maintenance, these systems can negatively impact indoor air quality and lead to a variety of health problems.

Indoor Dwellers

As humans have shifted from outdoor living to indoor living, we have gained many things. We are less exposed to the elements, and so we are in general, far more comfortable. However, as is the case with many things, when we gained something, we also lost something. We accept that we will not get to breathe fresh air every day, and that a walk in fresh air is something to be cherished. In exchange for air conditioning and heating, we have sacrificed fresh air.

How Stale Is Too Stale?

Normally, indoor air in Calgary is perfectly acceptable, thanks to smart building construction and good ventilation. However, due to the city’s climate, indoor air quality can deteriorate quickly if heating and ventilation systems are not properly maintained. Common symptoms of poor air quality in Calgary include drowsiness, recurring headaches, a ticklish throat, a tight chest, and a running nose. If you experience these symptoms, don’t reach for the cold medicine just yet – it could be that you are exposed to poor air quality.

How Can You Prevent This?

At JPS Furnace & Air Conditioning, we understand the importance of maintaining your heating and ventilation systems to ensure optimal indoor air quality. As a leading provider of indoor air quality services in Calgary, we recommend having a professional perform regular checkups on your heating and ventilation systems to avoid suffering health problems as a result of poor air quality. Yearly furnace and duct cleaning in Calgary can also help.  Our team of experienced technicians can help you identify and address any issues with your HVAC system to ensure that you and your family breathe clean and healthy air all year round.

In addition to regular maintenance of heating and ventilation systems, there are also several products available that can help improve indoor air quality. JPS Furnace & Air Conditioning offers a range of products including air filtration systems, humidifiers, and air purification systems.

Air filtration systems can remove dust, pollen, and other allergens from the air, making it easier to breathe and reducing the risk of allergies. Humidifiers can add moisture to the air, which can help prevent dry skin, static electricity, and other problems associated with dry indoor air. Air purification systems can remove contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, and mold from the air, improving overall air quality.

Remember, poor indoor air quality can have serious health consequences, so it’s important to take steps to ensure that the air you breathe is clean and healthy. With the right maintenance and products, you can enjoy a comfortable, healthy indoor environment all year round.

Why Does This Happen?

Remember, the problem comes when our air quality deteriorates without us noticing. Bad air quality can give us a number of health problems – including the flu-like symptoms listed above – and increased susceptibility to allergies. Feeling the health problems associated with bad air quality is so common, there is even a name for the syndrome. Sick Building Syndrome is a term that describes the whole host of serious health symptoms of people who have been exposed for a length of time to poor quality air.
