- The Science
Did you know your indoor air can be up to 100x more polluted than the air just outside your home? The EPA has ranked indoor air quality (IAQ) among the top 5 environmental threats to human health. Home Energy Medics is committed to helping Northern VA and Washington, DC area homeowners improve their indoor health with air quality upgrades.
SYMPTOMS OF POOR INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Poor Indoor Air QualityThere are a number of symptoms that can indicate your home's indoor air quality is less than optimal. These can include:
- Runny nose
- Itchy eyes
- Worsened asthma in the home
- Sore throat
CAUSES OF POOR IAQ
A symptom of inefficiencies in your home often means that pollutants are freely circulating throughout your home. Poor IAQ can be caused by combustion appliances within your home, outside allergens that are drawn in through leaky areas, vapors from building materials and other chemicals, or other factors like pet dander and cigarette smoke. Our team will pinpoint the root causes in your home, since specific causes can vary from home to home.

Home Energy Medics did a wonderful job on our house. We now have much better heating and cooling. The original audit was very revealing of heat leakage points throughout the house. I had no idea that recessed lighting "cans" could leak so much outside air into the house.
