Some of the symptoms that you may experience due to poor air quality could be headaches, fatigue, sinus congestion, and sneezing. Mold growth, odors, and large amounts of dust build-up are signs that you may want to look for.
You may have already been investigating some potential solutions, such as HVAC UV lights or whole-home air purification systems such as the iWave.
But… how do you find out what your indoor air quality is really like? Fortunately, G&R can help!
How to test indoor air quality
If you are concerned about the air quality in your home, let one of our EPA certified HVAC technicians come to your home to perform a professional indoor air quality test. The test only takes a few minutes, is affordable, and gives you a breakdown as to what may be affecting the air in your home. Our technicians can then discuss the test results with you and offer the best solutions to improve your indoor air quality and comfort. During the test, our professional equipment provides data on several components of your air quality, including:
- Barometric Pressure
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
- Carbon Dioxide
- Relative Humidity
Discussing the results of your indoor air quality test
That data will be generated into a report that will be shared with you. Specifically, the technician performing your test can pull up the results on their smartphone or tablet, which will also provide some suggestions to improve your indoor air quality. Combined with this, our technician can also take your individual home and family needs into account when recommending the best solution.
For example, our technicians and staff highly recommend the iWave-R for whole home air purification. This system can be installed in virtually any existing in-duct HVAC system. The iWave-R is effective both at reducing airborne viruses, germs, and pathogens as well as helping to reduce particulates, odors, VOCs, and allergens in your home. However, depending on your budget and needs, a UV light may be the solution you’re looking for. UV lights, while not effective at reducing particulates, do help to prevent mold growth in your system as well as help reduce viruses and germs on the AC coil (which would then be blown throughout the home.)
