The importance of clean home air can’t be overstated. Respiratory ailments, allergies, and asthma are often exacerbated by indoor air pollution. Pollen, dust, mold, and other pollutants can be degrading home air quality.
Is Your Home Bringing in Enough Fresh Air?
Tightly constructed homes save energy and stop drafts. If a home is too tight, however, indoor air quality suffers. It is important to have enough fresh air in your home to prevent high levels of indoor air pollution. Our energy-efficiency experts can determine if your home is too airtight with a blower door test. If it is, we have a variety of solutions for a healthy home.
What are Some Common Indoor Air Pollutants?
There are numerous contaminants that compromise home air health. Mold growth, for example, can cause respiratory ailments, even for otherwise healthy people. In addition, mold can exacerbate asthma and allergy symptoms. Adequately ventilating bathrooms, laundry areas, attics, and cooking areas is an excellent strategy to promote healthy home air. It is essential to exhaust pollutants and excess moisture to stop mold growth.
Is Your Home Safe From Carbon Monoxide Poisoning?
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that can be fatal. If you have an improperly vented heating system or water heater, your family could be at risk. Your safety is our top priority. The Weatherization Services team tests carbon monoxide levels for a safer home. If mechanical systems aren’t vented properly, we can resolve the issue.
Was My Home Properly Weatherized?
Some Milwaukee-area homes aren’t properly insulated. In some cases, homes are insulated but not air sealed. In addition to missing a big energy-saving opportunity, this can cause moisture and mold issues in the attic. Our air sealing service can help prevent damp air from entering your attic.
Is Leaky Ductwork Causing Indoor Air Quality Issues in Your Home?
Ductwork delivers conditioned air from your heating or cooling system to the rooms of your home. In some houses, it passes through unfinished basements or attics. If the ductwork isn’t properly sealed, pollen, pet dander, dust, and other pollutants can enter the ductwork. Our duct sealing service helps keep pollutants from entering your ductwork and the living areas of your home.
