Did You Know?
Indoor air is 2-5x more polluted than outdoor air!
- OSHA links poor indoor air quality to headaches, fatigue, trouble concentrating, and irritation of the eyes, nose, and lungs.
- Poor indoor air can worsen asthma and allergies.
- NIOSH discovered 52% of indoor air issues stemmed from inadequate ventilation.
- The EPA recommends indoor air humidity remain below 60% to reduce mold growth.
Could your air be making you sick?
Your home may not be getting enough fresh air, causing a buildup of carbon dioxide, harmful chemicals, allergens or irritants. Or the bad air might be getting in from crawlspace, the attic, or garage.
Excessive moisture creates a damp environment for bacteria to thrive, aggravating allergies and asthma.
Damp under circulated air can harbor bacteria and toxins, putting your immune system at risk.
We can help! Our skilled technicians can perform an Indoor Air Evaluation at no cost.
Our technician will evaluate your indoor air quality for the potential issues:
- Poor ventilation (not enough fresh air).
- High humidity (excessive indoor moisture).
- High Infiltration (air coming from unhealthy sources like crawlspaces or garages).
Our technician can then recommend additional testing to determine if your home has high infiltration or additional measures to control humidity and add additional fresh air.
New code requirements:
- Effective July 2017, every new home constructed in the state of Florida must pass a Blower Door inspection.
If your home was constructed prior to 2017, it likely did not have to undergo this extra level of inspection. The Florida Building Code now recommends air ventilation for homes that are sealed well, to bring in new, fresh air to improve air conditions.
Good news! Our technicians are certified to provide this type of additional testing, as needed.
