What an Energy Audit Can Do for Your IAQ

Winter is almost here, and if you’re like this homeowner, you’re probably looking for ways to make your home ready for the deep freeze.

Thanks to the New York Times, you may have heard of an energy audit as an excellent way to assess and improve your home’s energy efficiency before winter sets in; but did you know it can do those same things for indoor air quality (IAQ) as well?

Why Does Indoor Air Quality Matter?

You may be wondering why indoor air quality matters in the first place. After all, isn’t indoor air healthier than the air we breathe outdoors?

Well, many Long Island homeowners are surprised to find out that this actually isn’t the case! According to the EPA, indoor air is two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. This is because many homes in the area have air leaks which let outside contaminants in. Plus, there are many airborne contaminants which originate inside the home. Without proper ventilation, these contaminants have no path out of the home. This is especially true in the winter when we tend to keep our windows closed.

Some of the contaminants which may be harming your indoor air quality and exacerbating allergy and asthma symptoms include:

  • Dust & pet dander

  • Allergens like pollen & mold

  • Viruses, bacteria & germs

  • VOCs from furnishings

  • Pesticides, lead & asbestos

  • Carbon monoxide & radon

An Energy Audit: Your First Step to Better IAQ

For fewer indoor contaminants and greater protection against allergy and asthma like symptoms, it’s important to do what you can to improve your indoor air quality. The first step to better IAQ is scheduling an energy audit with the experts at Green Team LI.

During your energy audit, we’ll not only assess your home’s overall energy efficiency but also look for issues which may be harming your IAQ. Maybe, for example, air leaks are letting dirt and pollen in, or maybe leaks in your ductwork are pulling in contaminants from your attic. Perhaps your crawlspace needs attention as well.

Whatever may be going on in your home, we’ll give you a complete audit report which details our findings about your home and what solutions we recommend for better indoor air quality. We’ll even prioritize these recommendations and let you know about available rebates and incentives so you can make a decision that best suits your budget.
