3 Questions to Ask Indoor Air Quality Pros

What Tests Will You Use to Evaluate Air Quality?

Many tests can determine the quality of the air in your home or workplace. They range from simple evaluations of humidity levels, temperature, and air flow to more advanced tests of your heating and cooling system. IAQ specialists will check for standing water, water damage, pest droppings, and the presence of asbestos and radon, which can cause severe health problems. They will tailor their tests to your environment, so it’s important to understand what they’re doing.

What Causes Poor Air Quality in My Home or Workplace?

HVAC ContractorsPoor indoor air quality can be attributed to allergens, improper ventilation, and excessive humidity that causes mold growth. Even air that is too dry can have negative effects on people, causing dehydration and irritated skin. Effective insulation sometimes can trap unhealthy air inside a building, making the indoor environment more polluted than the outdoors.

How Can I Prevent Indoor Air Quality Problems?

The answers will vary depending on your particular situation. HVAC contractors can provide air duct cleaning to remove allergens and equipment repairs and maintenance to prevent water leaks that contribute to germ and mold growth. The installation of a humidifier, dehumidifier, air cleaner, or ventilator also can make your air more comfortable and eliminate contaminants.
