Have you recently moved into a newly built home? Congratulations! Now it’s time to make sure your home is Seider Safe with an AirAdvice Indoor Air Analysis™. Unfortunately, just because your home is a new build doesn’t mean the air quality inside it is clean.
Homeowners are surprised to find out that as they’re settling into their new home, so are pollutants and other things. New home building materials such as carpeting and a fresh coat of paint can give off high numbers of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) which can be dangerous to your health. But, how can you tell if your new home’s air is sick? That’s easy—our team of NATE-certified Carrier technicians can perform an indoor air analysis test in your home to determine what issues might be present.
The simple 30-minute AirAdvice analysis measures for pollutants like VOCs, humidity, carbon dioxide, and more. We’ll provide an easy-to-understand report and go over it with you to see the levels in your home. A safe VOC level is 500 and your home’s relative humidity should be in the 40 to 50 percent range.
If these levels are any higher, we will offer our professional suggestions and recommend products to fix any problems. Heat recovery ventilators (HRVs) and UV lights can be installed to eliminate VOCs and get rid of contaminants, and whole-home dehumidifiers work to maintain a proper humidity level to prevent the growth of mold and other bacteria.
