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, Washington, DC and Maryland area homeowners improve their indoor health with air quality upgrades.
SYMPTOMS OF POOR INDOOR AIR QUALITY
There 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.
FIXING YOUR IAQ WITH HOME ENERGY MEDICS
Did you know that home efficiency improvements can go a long way toward fixing allergy symptoms and even mitigating asthma by improving the indoor air quality? Fixing your air quality begins with properly sealing and ventilating the home and testing your combustion appliances and gas lines to ensure they are working properly. We'll work with you to determine the best ventilation strategy for your home and will help you implement the solutions so you and your family can breathe easier!

Looking for Duct Sealing? Did you know...
There is a substantial amount of energy loss when your HVAC system works overtime to make up for leaks and gaps in your ductwork. In addition to increased energy bills, the unnecessary strain on your system can significantly shorten its lifespan or lead to costly repairs. Air duct leaks can also create indoor air quality issues by allowing dust, allergens, and other pollutants easy access to the air circulating through your home. Having properly sealed ducts keeps these pollutants out of the air you breathe and balances temperatures, leaving your home feeling more comfortable.
HEAR WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY
Scott and the team did soundproofing work on what will be our child's nursery -- we live in a condo and could hear almost everything from the neighbors. The entire team was polite, kind, and most importantly, really effective.
