Indoor Air Quality and Filtration
Indoor Air Quality Diagnostic
The US Environmental Protection Agency writes that Indoor Air Quality refers to the air quality within buildings, and affects health and comfort. Pollutants include tobacco products, combustion appliances, building materials and furnishings, central healing and cooling systems and humidification devices, moisture, etc. If too little outdoor air enters indoors, pollutants can accumulate causing health and comfort problems.
Zenith Eco Energy has designed a diagnostic that will look at your ducts and indoor air balance and determine where there may be problems or room for improvement. While most HVAC tests look at your home’s overall system, this test will analyze each room individually.
Sometimes we receive calls from clients about rooms that are not well serviced by their HVAC system. This test will diagnose what the issue is, and offer our technicians’ recommendations. This has serious implications for comfort, system efficiency, and air pressure.
Our test looks at 10 different points, system-wide, and through individual rooms using new technologies. At the end of the diagnostic, you will receive a full explanation by our technician about your home’s air quality.
Why Indoor Air Quality?
According to the Canada Housing and Mortgage Corporation, Canadians spend up to 90 percent of their time indoors, making indoor-air quality both an important quality-of-life issue and a critical health-care issue—especially for those with respiratory problems.
Health effects of poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) can include dryness and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and skin; headaches; fatigue; shortness of breath; hypersensitivity and allergies; sinus congestion; coughing and sneezing; dizziness; and nausea.
We can help you improve the quality and comfort of your home’s indoor air. Components can be installed on virtually any brand of HVAC equipment.
