Your home's indoor air quality
is important for your health and well-being. Many people don't know why they should be concerned about their home's air quality, or what they can get from testing their indoor air. If you're a homeowner, here's what you need to know.
Poor Indoor Air Quality Can Exacerbate Allergies
Dusty ducts can flood the home with allergens like dust mites and pollen. Testing your home's ducts for presence of these allergens can help you decide how to manage your allergies and improve your personal comfort.
Toxic Gases Can Endanger Your Health
The EPA estimates that people get about 72 percent of their chemical exposure at home. Toxic gases can put you and other members of your household in danger. Common household gases
include VOCs (volatile organic compounds), radon and gases from solvents and cleaners.
You Won't Know Improvement is Needed Until It's Tested
Without testing your home's air quality, you'll never know whether or not you should make improvements to the air you breathe. Testing your home's air quality will reveal what kind of toxins and chemicals are in the air and can also help you decide if filtered indoor air is right for you.
Regular Testing Can Help You Maintain Your HVAC System
Allergens and dust in the ducts can clog your home's HVAC system and reduce its efficiency. Testing your home can help you decide when it's time to clean your ducts.
