The culprit could be living with you, right under your nose.

Bad indoor air quality is a tenacious enemy, and difficult to tame unless the building is understood as a system of systems. Some of these critical systems include ventilation, insulation, appliances, and heating and cooling equipment.

Poor or improper ventilation can result without enough proper fresh air supply — or if it’s coming inside from the wrong places, concentrates humidity, or contains toxins that threaten health, comfort, and productivity.

Ventilation problems turn into serious air quality problems when other systems in the home are not optimal, resulting negative feedback loops that create new and more complex pollutants. This is why we can’t look at only one part of the system of systems – we have to look at how they are connected.

Winter and summer is when many issues may become most apparent, as you and your family spend more time inside. Before taking any steps toward mitigation of possible contributors of health or energy issues, you can save money and time with an energy audit that also prioritizes indoor air quality. The result is your roadmap to health and energy efficiency, and your first step in determining actions that will be successful.

We do not sell you products or equipment; rather, we provide the solutions to make your home and wallet healthier, by identifying the offenders, assessing your equipment, and analyzing your energy costs, which determine your best moves recommended for improvement. We’ll help you throughout the process toward health and savings!
