Air Quality Tests: What Are They, And Why Should They Be Scheduled?

Air Quality Tests: What Are They, And Why Should They Be Scheduled?

The EPA states that indoor levels of pollutants tend to be significantly higher than outdoor levels of pollutants. When that data is combined with the research that states that individuals spend 90 percent of their time indoors, it would be simple to come to the conclusion that health risks due to inside pollutants may be greater than health risks as a result of outdoor pollutants.

Thankfully, there are many ways to improve the indoor air quality of your home. One way to begin is to schedule a test of the quality of the air inside your home to determine what the best solution is for you and your home.

Who Do You Call?

When it comes to the options available for indoor air quality testing, you may find yourself overwhelmed. There are home testing kits, indoor pollutant professionals, and more. Many of these professionals are focused on a specific issue, such as radon detection or mold remediation. However, there are many HVAC contractors that are more than equipped to offer a wide-ranging analysis and solutions, including the professionals at Indoor Comfort Systems, Inc.

How Long Do Indoor Air Quality Tests Take?

Though test times can vary, as soon as the indoor air quality test is initiated, it generally takes an average of 30 minutes. Once the test has been completed, solutions can be recommended based on the results of that test.
