Headache from the Holidays? Maybe Indoor Air Quality is Actually to Blame.

You’ve survived the holidays (barely) and got everything . . . okay, some things that were on your wish list, and you should be feeling more like yourself again. The problem is that instead, you may be feeling flu symptoms, a dull headache, nausea, and other symptoms. You think it is normal after being exhausted for weeks preparing for the holidays, but it could be something else entirely.

The month of January is also typically the coldest month of the year, and you probably have your home shut up nice and tight combating the winter winds. This is when indoor air quality can suffer, and you might actually be experiencing symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning resulting from a problem with your furnace. Additional symptoms include confusion, shortness of breath, weakness, dizziness, and blurred vision. The dangerous part is that in high enough concentrations of carbon monoxide can render you unconscious and even be lethal.

One of the best post-holiday gifts you can give yourself is a Kidde carbon monoxide alarm and a furnace checkup by our professionals. Don’t let poor indoor air quality endanger you or your family, especially if it is because of carbon monoxide. Call us at Sky HVAC today and arrange for a checkup and the installation of an alarm that could save your life. Ask us about other indoor air quality services, as well, such as air duct cleaning and purification systems.
