Enjoy a higher quality of life, and breathe easier with our indoor air quality services
The quality of air that we are exposed to and breathe has a direct impact on our health, as well as our overall quality of life. There are several harmful airborne pollutants that can be very difficult to detect in our homes. It’s important to know what is in the air that you breathe. Older homes that have been exposed to water damages are at a higher risk. According to the EPA, we are more likely to be exposed to problematic air quality indoors rather than outdoors. Here are a few common symptoms of poor quality:

This process is crucial, because we can then diagnose the cause of your air quality problems, and come up with a solution that gets the job done right the first time.

Healthy Home Solutions
Are you or your loved ones constantly sick or suffering from chronic allergies? If you answered yes, then your health issues might be due to an unhealthy home environment.
Looking at a house as a system is based on building science research that began during the energy crisis of the 70’s. Princeton University led the way and designed an infiltrometer to measure the air tightness of a structure. The researchers at Princeton called this air movement into and out of homes infiltration and exfiltration. They found a direct correlation between the uncontrolled air movement into and out of homes and energy expenses.
Our Five Star motto is: “Make it tight, insulate it right, ventilate, dehumidify, and purify for COMFORT, SAVINGS AND HEALTH.”
Insulate It Right
The thermal boundary should be complete with the pressure boundary. Your comfort advisor can help you identify these problems and provide solutions as well. Because 60%+ of the homes energy is lost through the attic, we provide attic energy upgrades that increase your comfort and lower your utility bills.
Every home needs fresh air and this standard has been established by the USDOE. Our comfort advisor can test and advise about the needed amount. But there is good infiltration or makeup air and bad infiltration. Good infiltration is what comes in around windows and doors when the wind blows. Bad infiltration is what comes from the crawl space and attic because of MAD Air problems.
Air conditioners are not dehumidifiers. You may need a dedicated system to provide the proper indoor air quality.
Every cubic foot of air in your home contains all of the allergens that cause health problems. Your comfort depends on lowering the amount in the air. You cannot remove 100% but you can lower the concentration. Our whole house high efficiency air filters and purifiers can help you live better.
