Indoor Air Quality
Ensuring that your energy efficient home is also a healthy home is important. Modern homes are well-insulated, well-sealed and efficient. But even as homeowners are trying to keep conditioned air from escaping, this tight sealing can create problems. When controlled ventilation is not included in the home's design, it's important to assess indoor air quality.
WHAT CAUSES INDOOR AIR POLLUTION?
When most people think about air pollution, they tend to picture a smoggy city. Indoor air pollution, however, can cause just as many health problems for its occupants as outdoor air pollution. Some contaminants that can be found inside a home include:
Gasses from combustion (like carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide)
Radon (a colorless, odorless gas that can seep inside from basements)
Grease and smoke from poorly ventilated kitchens
Mold in baths and kitchens when humidity levels are not controlled
Allergens from both outside (pollen) and inside (dust)
HOW TO SPOT PROBLEMS
Testing for indoor air quality issues can come in many forms. A home air quality assessment can test for mold, poorly sealed ductwork, and allergens that can affect the comfort of occupants with allergies or asthma.
