Err on the Side of Caution with an AirAdvice Test
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has identified indoor air pollution as one of the top five urgent environmental risks to public health—that’s because your indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. More than 90 percent of all homes have at least one indoor air quality problem, which can have a major effect on the family’s comfort, safety, and especially health. If you or a family member suffer from allergies or asthma or there are infants or elderly people living in your home, indoor air quality is an even greater concern.
A new diagnostic product on the market called AirAdvice for Homes™ is an easy indoor air quality test that’s offered to homeowners at little or no cost—and can take as little as 30 minutes to sample your home’s air while our comfort consultant is already in your home. This portable diagnostic system identifies hidden air quality issues so that heating and cooling professionals can solve those problems with IAQ products. Air filters, ventilators, air cleaners, UV lights, and dehumidifiers are just some of the solutions that heating and cooling professionals can recommend to improve the quality of life and safety in homes like yours.
How do you know if you need the diagnostic test? If any of these common indoor air pollutants are found in your home, call a licensed AirAdvice professional and Carrier dealer like Gross Heating to have the AirAdvice indoor air quality test performed in your home.
