The EPA released information reporting indoor pollution could be between two and five times higher in your home than the air outdoors. Increased pollutants are a common trigger for allergies and asthma in people. If you notice you seem to cough, sneeze, have runny or itchy eyes, or problems breathing when you are at home, but these symptoms are less noticeable while away from the home, chances are your home has polluted air.
Distinct Heating & Cooling can help you find out exactly what is in your indoor air with our AirAdvice™ Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Program. This program helps identify any potential indoor air quality concerns with a comprehensive test and helps you discover what may be affecting you and your family.
Why Calgary Indoor Air Quality Testing Is Important
Homes are sealed up and kept closed a good amount of time throughout the year, from the cold winter months to those hot summer days. With newly and newer constructed homes, they have even tighter windows and doors to help conserve and save energy by keeping indoor air inside and stopping air leaks from the outdoors. While this is great, the pollutants in these types of homes could be significant and lead to increased problems with allergies and asthma in some people. As such, pollutants are trapped indoors and create an unhealthy living environment for you, your family, and your pets.
Further, children from the ages of five to seventeen years old tend to be more susceptible to airborne allergens and asthma, than adults. In fact, one of the leasing causes of school absences is from children in this age range have asthma attacks. Additionally, the pollutants in indoor air have been found to cause headaches, fatigue, nasal irritation, scratch throats, nausea, and other cold/flu-like symptoms in children and adults, which are often mistaken as an illness.
Discover What Is in the Air in Your Home
Our AirAdvice™ Indoor Air Quality Program enables us to identify pollutants in the air in your home and develop solutions to help you resolve key IAQ (indoor air quality) problems, which could affect you, your family’s and your pet’s comfort, safety, and health. AirAdvice™ is an independent, third party IAQ testing technology that analyzes the air in your home.
Distinct Heating & Cooling sets up an AirAdvice™ monitor device in your home and has it continuously collect air samples over a five day period. The device records six key parameters of indoor air quality as it collect samples, including:
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
- Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
- Carbon Monoxide (CO)
As the data is recorded, the AirAdvice™ device uses its built-in cellular data connection to send this information, over a secure connection, to AirAdvice™ servers for further analysis using advanced software programs. After the data has been fully processed, reports are generated and emailed to Distinct Heating & Cooling.
At the end of the five day testing period, the IAQ professionals at Distinct Heating & Cooling sit down with you to discuss the results of the test and share the full-color AirAdvice™ IAQ reports we received. These detailed reports allow you to “see” your home’s daily air quality, as well as any potential problems.
Together, we will discuss what the potential causes might be that is affecting the indoor air quality in your home. In addition, the report will contain its own suggestions and recommendations for resolving your IAQ problems in your home. Using the reporting data, our expertise and your input, we can help you find and select the best solution that is right for you, your family, your pets, and your home.
