Healthy Home Analysis

 

Do you have a room or area of your home that is hotter or colder than the rest of the house?

Are you always fighting to keep your upper or lower floor at your requested temperature? Or is it just one room or area of your house? This could be a symptom of leaky ductwork or simply an unbalanced ductwork system. The Department of Energy has said a leaky ductwork system can lose from 20% to 40% of the energy that you paid to cool or heat!

Common solutions suggested can be manual dampers, sealing up the existing ductwork, replacing ductwork, adding supplies/returns, or an entire new system designated to take care of the load of your unsatisfied area. All of these suggestions can be a part of the answer but not the entire solution. If the unsatisfied room/area is leaking out the air you just paid to heat/cool. Your problem is not really solved, is it?

Do you have problems with dust in your home?

You know the feeling when you have spent hours, if not an entire day, diligently cleaning and dusting your home? You step back and look around, everything is clean and fresh, it feels good right? What about in the following week or even couple days later when you see that you now have a new layer of dust on everything you just spent so much time cleaning? My guess is this feeling is not as good as the first one. Don’t worry, you are not the only one experiencing this frustration!

The Department of Energy reported up to 9 out of 10 homes have indoor air quality (IAQ) problems! That’s 90% of the homes in the US!! Here is a very unknown fact, before 2009, new homes and additions in Clark & Cowlitz County had no requirements about air leaking out of or into the structure! *

Common solutions suggested can be electronic air cleaners, ultraviolet lights, humidifiers, dehumidifiers, etc. These pieces of equipment are great components for capturing dust that is inside the home but they do nothing to stop the dust from entering the home in the first place!
