The Importance of an Indoor Air Quality Inspection


Air Quality Inspections

Well-insulated homes increase the energy efficiency of your Fredericksburg home, saving you money on heating and cooling costs, but a tightly sealed home can also exacerbate indoor air pollution. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air is often more polluted than the air outdoors, sometimes as much as 100 times more polluted. For those who suffer from allergies, asthma, and respiratory problems, contaminated indoor air can pose real health dangers. Robert B. Payne, Inc. skilled technicians can inspect your indoor air quality and help your family breathe easier.

Dust is not only an irritant in itself but also acts like a magnet, attracting allergens like mold, mildew, pollen, and dust mites. If dust in your home seems to reappear soon after cleaning, the duct system in your home may need cleaning. Your air conditioning system may be sending you signals that ductwork is dirty as well. If it is taking longer to heat or cool your home, or if you’re experiencing high utility bills, chances are that leaky ductwork is to blame.

Leaky or dirty ducts decrease the energy efficiency of your home, driving up energy costs. Insulating and sealing cracks and gaps in your ducts can reduce energy costs by as much as 30 percent.
