Indoor Air Quality Testing
Indoor air pollutants can cause health problems such as, asthma, headaches, respiratory diseases, heart disease, cancer, and eyes, nose, and throat problems. Elderly people, children, and chronically ill people with suppressed immune systems are the most susceptible to poor indoor air quality. Even if your family does not experience any of the symptoms of poor indoor air quality, it is always a good idea to make sure the air you are breathing does not have the potential to cause your family any health problems.
There are three ways to control indoor air quality:
- Control the Source – This can be done by eliminating pollution sources such as gas cans, aerosols, molds, and paint cans. Also, you want to have all gas appliances checked for back drafting & low level carbon monoxide. This is not only harmful to your health, but can be extremely dangerous. Solutions such as proper humidity control, air sealing, duct sealing, and gas appliance safety checks are all part of the Energy Savers of Florida indoor air quality program.
- Proper Ventilation – Ventilation coming from doors, windows, or mechanical ventilation such as dehumidifiers and exhaust fans are the best type of ventilation to help control indoor pollution levels.
- Air Cleaners – This type of air quality control is typically used after controlling the source and proper ventilation. Energy Savers of Florida can offer the most advanced air filtration systems on the market, including UV technologies.
