Is Mould Making My Family Sick? Symptoms to Look Out For

Written By EnergyLabs  |  Hot Water Heat Pumps 

If you’re a homeowner in Australia, you’ll know all too well the struggle of maintaining a healthy, safe and mould-free home. Unfortunately, mould is a common problem that can cause serious health risks for your family – so it’s important to be aware of the symptoms and take steps to address it quickly.

Mould is caused by moisture and can lurk in places like bathrooms, kitchens, basements and laundry rooms. If left untreated, it can spread rapidly throughout your home, causing health issues such as asthma, allergies and skin irritations. Symptoms to look out for include coughing, wheezing and sneezing; irritated eyes, nose or throat; headaches; difficulty breathing; skin rashes; and an overall feeling of tiredness or fatigue.

In order to prevent mould from occurring in the first place, it’s important to reduce moisture levels throughout your home. One way to do this is by installing a hot water heat pump – not only will this help reduce the amount of moisture in the air but it will also reduce your workload (as there’s no need for manual labour) and save you money on energy bills.

A hot water heat pump uses existing energy sources (such as the sun or air) to transfer heat into water that is then stored in a tank for use around the house. While regular hot water systems rely on gas or electricity to heat up water when needed, a hot water heat pump is much more efficient as it uses less energy overall – meaning lower energy bills. Plus, because they are quite compact in size they are more discreet than other systems – perfect if you don’t want something too bulky in your home.

It’s also important to remember that prevention is better than cure when it comes to mould – so if you do spot any signs of mould in your home don’t delay in taking action (even if those action steps involve using a hot water heat pump!). Doing so will help ensure that your family stays healthy over time while also keeping costs down as much as possible.
