Aren’t you glad we’re in Texas and not New York right now? (For many reasons!)
We’re lucky to have clean outdoor air to breathe! But often we don’t consider if the air quality inside our home is safe. You can find out exactly how clean your home’s indoor air quality is with Adon’s new “What Are You Breathing Screening”. It pinpoints the yuck–just in case our luck (or the jet stream) changes!
The ‘What Are You Breathing Screening’ includes measuring:
- Carbon Monoxide levels – to ensure they are below 6 ppm
- Particles levels – to ensure they are below 10 μg/m3
- Temperature levels – to ensure they are between 68° – 75° F
- Carbon Dioxide levels – to ensure they are within acceptable ranges
- Odor and smells – The ability to withstand intensely unpleasant odors, is known as “olfactory fatigue” or “nose blindness”. Your senses build up a protective barrier, normalizing what should be intolerable. In other words, you may not notice persistent odors in your home, but visitors will, and studies show poor indoor air quality has a long-term impact on mental health.
- Relative humidity – In Texas’s sizzling summers, excessive humidity cultivates mold, accelerates wood decay, and invites unwanted pests. Our screening will help identify the optimal humidity for your home.
The Screening takes 45 minutes, identifies potential sources of your pollutants, explains all the findings, PLUS makes recommendations for improvement.
Here’s why this Screening is important…
CO levels above 6 ppm can cause dizziness, nausea, and headaches. Particles levels above 10 μg/m3 can cause irritation in the eyes, nose, and throat. And temperature imbalances can cause discomfort and fatigue. Long-term exposure to pollutants damages lungs and leads to more serious health problems.
Where does poor indoor air quality come from?
Human and pet dander, fireplace ash and soot, smoke particles from burning cigarettes or candles, leaks in heating and cooling ductwork, a cracked heat exchanger on a furnace, a leaking vent or chimney, and inadequate or aging venting of combustion appliances. Then there are the outside elements coming inside, such as dirt, dust, pollen, and pollution. Yuck!
