Does someone in your home suffer from allergies, asthma, or frequent respiratory infections? Although we typically think of air pollution as being outside of the home, indoor air is actually far more polluted than inside air, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Because we spend a vast majority of our time inside, indoor air quality has a huge effect on our health and home safety.
Our Indoor Air Quality Solutions
Clean dirty ductwork to remove many common allergens, including dust mites, pollen, mold spores, and pet dander.
Seal ductwork to save energy and prevent airborne pollutants from entering.
Seal gaps and cracks in the attic or crawlspace where rodents, moisture, and toxins can enter the home.
Insulate the attic or crawlspace to cut energy bills and enhance comfort.
Common Indoor Air Pollutants in Home Ductwork
Many Tri City-area homes have high levels of pollen, dust mites, mold, and pet dander. When these pollutants get caught in the ductwork, they are distributed throughout the home by the HVAC system, degrading home air health. A-One technicians use a dust static pressure test to determine if leaky ductwork is driving up your energy bills and contaminating indoor air.
Dirty Attic & Crawlspace Air in the Home
Many homes across the Tri Cities have past or current rodent infestations in their attics or crawlspaces, combined with dust and mold issues. When air from these places enters the living area, it carries contaminants with it that can worsen allergy and asthma symptoms among occupants.
To evaluate your home, we’ll move the current insulation to pinpoint where air and vermin can enter the home. If the insulation is compromised or dirty, we will professionally extract it from the home. We then air seal these areas, seal the ductwork, and apply blown-in insulation. In some cases, insulating and air sealing a home can cut home heating and cooling costs by 50 percent.
Diagnostic Testing For Your Tri-Cities Home
We use industry-standard instruments, not guesswork, to determine if your home has indoor air quality issues. From West Richland to Pasco, Kennewick, and Eltopia, Washington, we pressure test ductwork to determine if leaks are spreading airborne pollutants throughout your home. Our blower door test and infrared cameras reveal where gaps and cracks leak air and where insufficient insulation is driving up your energy bills. We then have a suite of options that enhance indoor air quality while cutting your heating and cooling costs throughout the year.
After you make suggested air quality upgrades to your home, our team provides a test-out to confirm that our work was effective and that your home is tight!
