According to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, indoor air quality issues typically fall into three main categories. While there is often some overlap, but they are:
- Comfort Issues
- Building-related Illnesses
- Sick Building Syndrome
Comfort concerns with indoor air quality include symptoms such as feeling too hot or cold; experiencing draftiness, noise, closeness or stuffiness; hearing unusual or loud noises; or smelling foul odors. Comfort issues are often the easiest to fix, but sometimes what satisfies some occupants may bother others, making resolutions tricky at times.
We’ve read about building-related indoor air quality illnesses in the news. A group of people on a cruise develop Legionnaires Disease or some other wide-spread illness that points to the structure’s HVAC system.
When a significant number of a building’s occupants experience similar physical symptoms, this often points to sick building syndrome. This usually shows up as watery or itchy eyes, runny noses, headaches, difficulty concentrating, nausea or headaches. The onset of symptoms often occurs upon entering the building or home or even a specific room or area and goes away once the person leaves.
