Professional Indoor Air Quality Testing
The root of many indoor air quality challenges began in the 70s. First came the in 1973 oil embargo, which was when we first passed laws for tax incentives to get better equipment and high-efficiency cars. We also had advanced mileage and we started trying to have homes that were more energy-efficient. The mid-70s is when we started changing our building codes–we began making them tougher to regulate tightly and make sure that homes stayed at a better temperature. In building codes, we started using plastic products such as plywood and Tekspan to insulate covered windows. Old houses used to have drafts and this meant we always had to condition the space as we tried to keep cool or dehumidify. The drafts make the home extra cold in winter costing homeowners more to heat up their home.
When our homes were leaky or drafty, much of the energy that we already paid for to heat and cool that environment was escaping through the doors and through the windows. So we started to make our homes more energy efficient by changing some of the materials they had already used.
The Effects of Not Testing Your Air Quality
Did you know that the average house has 40 pounds of dust in it, comprised of human skin flakes? These studies show that we’re losing upwards of 30,000 skin cells per hour. Multiply that by the number of people in your house and you’ll start to understand how quickly these things grow without us even noticing. The challenge with this type of dust is that it can easily become an attractive environment for dust mites compromising the air quality of your home. Air inside the home is up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside. It turns out that kids’ bedrooms often have the highest concentration of toxicants in the house. In fact, millions of homes are unhealthy to live in because living in damp and moldy homes increases the risk of asthma by 40%. Millions of people like me suffer from asthma and allergies caused by a bad indoor air quality environment. But your home doesn’t have to stay that way. You can protect your family with energy efficient HVAC systems and indoor air quality testing.
