Indoor Air Quality Solutions You Can Trust
At Beck Cohen, we pride ourselves in our role as a full-service HVAC company in the Charlottesville area. While we work to maintain, install and repair the likes of furnaces and air conditioners, there’s one other aspect of home comfort that should not be ignored: indoor air quality. Yes, IAQ is important, especially considering the amount of time that we spend within our homes. We eat, sleep, and pass time at time – don’t you want to ensure that the air you’re breathing is fresh and of good quality?
Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case because allergens, bacteria, mold and other contaminants can have an impact on the air you breathe – and possibly on your health too. How do you know whether you may need your indoor air addressed?
Here’s a look at some signs and symptoms to watch for that may indicate poor IAQ:
- Musty or musky smells within the home
- Regular allergic reactions
- Static shocks
- Dry skin
- Dry lips
- Frequent nosebleeds
- Sore or scratchy throat
- Condensation on walls, windows and/or ceilings
If you regularly experience any of the following or just want to make sure that the air you’re breathing is good quality, contact the indoor air quality experts at Beck Cohen immediately!
Why Indoor Air Quality is Important
Indoor air quality is crucial to the health and wellbeing of everyone residing within a home. One of the core services offered by Beck Cohen is an IAQ audit. This consists of us coming to your home and inspecting all of the sources affecting the air you breathe indoors. We’ll check humidity levels, carbon monoxide levels, test for volatile organic compounds and more.
We’ll see if your gas-burning appliances are properly vented, look for cracks causing air leaks, and test for radon levels. Following our thorough inspection, we’ll present you with a detailed report and recommend the next steps to take.
