While the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says indoor air is often far more polluted than that found outdoors, it’s often hard for homeowners to believe. After all, the pleasant scent of cleaning agents that linger in the air is nice to come home to. And, really, who doesn’t love when the smell of spices from a meal that’s cooking waft in the air?
Although they might smell delightful, those scents that linger are just a few signs of indoor air pollution. So are those floating little dust particles you can see so clearly in the air when light from a window shines inside.
Unfortunately, indoor air pollution can affect you and your family in a number of ways. In some cases, the impact is pronounced, especially if you find yourself sneezing your way through allergy season. Fatigue, dizziness and headaches, however, are vague and may not be as easy to connect to your indoor air quality. Whether you suffer from respiratory conditions or are simply concerned about keeping your home healthy, identifying the pollutants in your home is the first step toward making improvements in the air you breathe.
A guess-and-check approach to tackling indoor air quality problems can be inefficient. Through professional testing, however, you can pinpoint specific materials and strategize solutions. An Engineered Air Comfort Specialist can test for the presence of allergens, mold, radon, asbestos and carbon monoxide in your home. As test results are obtained, solutions can be developed based on the unique needs of your household.
Gaining control of your indoor air quality begins with selecting an experienced HVAC contractor. At Engineered Air, we offer IAQ services and solutions that involve the latest industry technologies available. We can help you to deal with a specific issue that may be impeding your ability to breathe easy.
