Many people are unaware of the sick building syndrome, yet it exists.
You may be suffering from it unknowingly if you constantly have to deal with headaches, dry cough, fatigue, sensitivity to smells, dry cough, itchy skin, irritation of the ear, nose, and throat, as well as difficulties in concentrating.
All these are symptoms that many people ignore, especially when they are not severe. Sadly though, they are related to the HVAC system and can only get worse when left unattended. The first reason why you may be suffering without knowing is because of inadequate ventilation. This is likely to happen in older buildings since building standards have since changed over time. Depending on the building type, ventilation needs may vary. If more than one person in the building keeps experiencing the symptoms mentioned above, then it may be time to call in the experts for assessment. A competent HVAC professional will be able to look at the ventilation system and advise accordingly. You may also need to carry out a chemical contamination test. This requires the intervention of experts, which is the more reason you have to contact an HVAC contractor that deals with air purification. Chemical contamination can come from unsuspected sources as long as there is a breakdown of components. Your carpet, wood items, and even the pesticides you use regularly can be the source of this contamination. You may also be dealing with a case of biological contaminants such as mold and pollen. Most people ignore these until it is too obvious to ignore. Fixing it early enough spares you a lot of trouble and can savage your HVAC unit.
