Air Quality Inspection
Air quality inspection involves conducting a comprehensive assessment of the overall air quality and pollution levels within a home, with a focus on house energy saving. This includes measuring and evaluating various factors such as mould, formaldehyde (UFFI), asbestos, total organic volatile compounds (VOCs), and dust particulates. By measuring these elements, the inspection aims to provide a thorough understanding of the air quality and potential pollutants present in the home environment, ultimately contributing to efforts in optimizing energy efficiency and promoting house energy saving.
Are you concerned about Indoor Air Quality or Mould in your home?
Find out if mould or any other pollutant is in your home with air samples, surface samples. All of the samples are sent to a laboratory for analysis and you will receive a report with detail.
Don’t let poor indoor air quality destroy your home or compromise your health!
Typically, when it comes to air samples. Two samples are taken, one from the outside and one from the area of concern inside the building or the most commonly used area.
Mould and pollutants are everywhere in nature and comparing the inside and outside samples gives us a baseline. If mould spores are found inside the home that isn’t found outside or they are in much higher numbers. There may be mould growing in the home.
Different types of mould or hazardous material can vary in colour and look. If you aren’t sure what you see a surface sample can identify what type it is.
Air samples will be taken and once they are analyzed a lab report will be sent to you identifying the types of mould present. All Season Inspections are Unbiased towards the results and will simply report the findings.
air quality role in house energy saving
Air quality plays a crucial role in house energy saving. By ensuring proper ventilation and filtration systems, homeowners can improve indoor air quality while also optimizing energy efficiency. Effective air circulation and filtration help remove pollutants, allergens, and contaminants, reducing the strain on heating and cooling systems. This, in turn, promotes better energy utilization and contributes to a healthier and more sustainable living environment.
Several factors can affect indoor air quality:
- Particulate Matter:
This includes dust, pollen, pet dander, and other airborne particles that can be present in indoor air.
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs):
These are chemicals emitted from various sources such as cleaning products, paints, adhesives, furniture, and carpets.
- Carbon Monoxide (CO):
A colorless and odorless gas that can be released from faulty combustion appliances like gas stoves, furnaces, and fireplaces.
These are fungi that can grow in damp areas of the home, such as bathrooms, basements, or areas with water damage.
This is a common indoor air pollutant found in building materials, furniture, and household products.
Older homes may contain asbestos in insulation, flooring, or ceiling tiles, which can release harmful fibers into the air if disturbed.
- Poor Ventilation:
Inadequate ventilation can lead to a buildup of pollutants indoors, as fresh air exchange is limited.
It’s important to note that the specific air quality in a home can vary depending on factors such as location, building materials, lifestyle choices, and maintenance practices. Regular cleaning, proper ventilation, and minimizing the use of products that emit pollutants can help improve indoor air quality. If you have concerns about your home’s air quality, it may be beneficial to consult with a professional.
