Do You Need Indoor Air Quality Testing?Published on: January 29, 2018
You already know that outdoor air pollution can compromise your health, even in Florida. But when you spend most of your days indoors, you should also be concerned about the quality of your home’s air. From dust control to safeguarding your family, discover three reasons to get indoor air quality testing.
Your Home Tends to Be Dusty
A small amount of dust will inevitably appear in every home, but if you notice large amounts of dust accumulating right after your weekly cleaning session, something may be awry. Indoor air quality testing can help determine the source of the dust, which could be leaky ductwork or inadequate insulation. Once we’ve gotten to the root of the problem, the AC Southeast® team can suggest a solution, such as duct sealing or a better HVAC filter.
You Have Furry Family Members
If you have dogs or cats, you expect to encounter some fur and pet dander around the house. But if you can’t stop sneezing and sniffling, your home’s air quality may not be as high as it should be.
After a professional indoor air quality test, our team can recommend the most effective whole-house air purifier, which can remove up to 99 percent of the particles in your home’s air supply. If your family members suffer from allergies or asthma, they’ll appreciate that whole-house air purifiers can clean your home’s air supply continually, or up to eight times per hour.
You Want to Keep Your Family Safe
Dust and pet dander can be annoying, but the biggest airborne threats to your family’s health are invisible. Since you can’t see, smell, or taste radon, which is the second biggest cause of lung cancer in the U.S., you’ll need an indoor air quality test to know whether you should be concerned about this harmful gas. If you learn that radon is a concern in your home, you can take action to mitigate the risks right away.
