Aging insulation, household chemicals and inadequate venting of appliances all are culprits in creating heightened levels of toxins that threaten your home’s air quality.
Auditors from Franzoso Energy Solutions will thoroughly inspect your home for indoor air quality problems, and then recommend solutions for any issues we may identify.
Indoor air pollutants can cause health issues like asthma and other respiratory problems; irritation of eyes, nose and throat; and headaches. Simple solutions — such as kitchen and bathroom exhaust fans, and tighter duct sealing — reduce the level of pollutants in your home.
The following are some areas our auditors inspect to detect any poor air quality in your home that may cause health and safety problems:
To prevent carbon monoxide exposure, appliances such as gas stoves should be properly installed, operated, maintained, and vented to outside the home. The seals around your oven and refrigerator doors can contribute to energy loss, and need to be inspected for leaks.
Living Room and Family Room
These rooms breed indoor pollutants with their constant use. Fireplaces using wood or gas generate carbon monoxide, as do chimneys.
The humidity in bathrooms breeds mold, which can cause allergic reactions, asthma, and other respiratory problems. Franzoso will make sure your bathrooms are vented with a professionally installed fan to alleviate the growth of mold and mildew.
As a primary source of air leaks and moisture, this is a critically important place to seal cracks and keep well ventilated. Gas furnaces and boilers, gas washers and dryers, kerosene heaters, and other appliances that are not well sealed and maintained can emit poisonous carbon monoxide.
