3 Reasons an Air Quality Test Can Make Breathing Easier
Orange Park, Florida homeowners who suffer from asthma or allergies often struggle to breathe when poor circulation or damaged HVAC systems affect indoor air quality. A professional air quality test is the first step toward relieving your family’s respiratory issues. Once you have isolated the problems, your family can benefit from the latest indoor air quality products designed to effectively cleanse and purify .
Locate Sources of Air Pollution
An indoor air quality test looks for sources of air pollution, which can range from excess humidity to clogged ductwork. Identifying these issues will allow your HVAC technician to provide the appropriate solutions. If mold and mildew turn out to be the issues, for instance, whole-home dehumidifier products can go a long way toward restoring good air quality.
Measure Invisible Dangers
Some pollutants such as dust and pollen are easily seen. Others such as many harmful gases are odorless and invisible. Carbon monoxide (CO), for example, can wreak havoc on indoor air quality. More than that, carbon monoxide poisoning can have deadly results. Most homeowners don’t realize they have a problem until family members start to get sick. Carbon monoxide detectors are the best way to protect your household.
Locate Sources of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
VOCs are organic chemicals found in paint, furnishings, office equipment and other household items. When released into the air, they can cause sickness, worsen asthma symptoms, or even cancer. Proper ventilation helps to reduce VOCs, so if your technician spots a problem during your air quality testing, you may want to consider adding a whole-home air cleaner or purifier in addition to regularly maintaining your HVAC system. Air cleaners also provide the added benefit of removing pet dander, pollen, dust, and other airborne pollutants from your home.
