If you've got a case of the summer sniffles, and you think it's from going from the hot temperatures outside, to the cool temperatures inside, guess again.

The stuffiness of your air could be to blame.

Indoor Air Quality Coordinator Anna Maylett Rice says the E.P.A. considers indoor air one of the top ten health issues affecting the United States and worldwide.

She recommends if you have a stuffy nose, or allergies, assess your indoor situation.

Check the filters on your air system, dust and vacuum.

Rice says change your air filter at least four times a year, and more often if necessary.
