If you’ve been feeling like you just can’t shake your allergies this spring, even when you’re inside, you may be dealing with poor indoor air quality (IAQ). 

Poor IAQ causes many of the same symptoms as seasonal allergies, but unlike spring allergies, the symptoms of poor IAQ won’t go away when the seasons change. Here at Addison Homes, we help our clients stay healthy year-round by building healthy homes that promote high indoor air quality. 

What Are the Symptoms of Poor Indoor Air Quality?  

Some of the most common symptoms of poor IAQ include: 

  • Congestion
  • Coughing 
  • Headache 
  • Fatigue 
  • Dizziness 
  • Eye irritation 

Poor indoor air quality can also make existing respiratory conditions like asthma much worse. If your symptoms tend to act up when you’re at home and clear up when you spend a few days away, your home’s air quality could be what’s making you feel sick. 

Build a Healthy Home from the Ground Up With Addison Homes 

Here at Addison Homes, we adhere to the highest standards when it comes to home health and performance. Our Healthy HighPerformance Homes are designed to minimize your exposure to mold, radon, carbon monoxide, and other harmful contaminants, and all of our homes are certified to meet the EPA’s Indoor AirPLUS standards. By using high-quality building materials, moisture control, ventilation systems, air filters, and more, we create healthy, comfortable living environments that your family will thrive in. 

In addition to health, we also consider home efficiency at every step of the building process. Every home we build meets DOE Zero Energy Ready Home and ENERGY STAR Home standards. As a result, our energy efficient houses save energy and are more affordable to heat and cool, leading to lower utility bills and a reduced carbon footprint.
