At DeVere Insulation Home Performance in Baltimore we help families make their homes and the air they breathe safer and healthier with our specially designed healthy home services. Our healthy home solutions help remedy problems with moisture, ventilation, and air quality in your home. Many homeowners fail to realize that severe health issues can be caused by neglecting these important areas of a home. We become accustomed to the air we breathe inside our own home and aren’t aware that the air is unhealthy and may be a silent threat. The only way to breathe easy is to get a healthy home assessment by a team of professionals.
A healthy home assessment is the first step on the road toward a healthier home. The team at DeVere Insulation Home Performance reviews your home for several issues. When our team comes to examine your home for a healthy home system, they will look for the following issues:
There are many risks to having a home without a whole-home humidity control system. Ideally, your home will sit in the humidity and moisture sweet spot. Extreme humidity can cause mold and mildew to grow as well as encourage issues like bacteria, insects, and other allergens. On the other hand, excessively dry air will cause paint and wood to crack or warp and agitate pesky health issues like skin irritation, chapped lips, nose bleeds, sinus issues, and increase the risk of common illnesses. Maintaining proper home humidity can be felt immediately, and your home and your family will see many long-term benefits.
Stale and stagnant airflow within your house is not only unpleasant, it’s downright dangerous to your health. At DeVere Insulation Home Performance we recommend mechanical air ventilation as part of our healthy home services in Baltimore. When air is not effectively flowing through your house, pollutants like dust, pet dander, smoke, pesticides, bacteria, and viruses can accumulate. Relying on uncontrolled airflow like opening a window just isn’t enough. The proper mechanical ventilation system will circulate fresh air throughout your home and remove stagnant air.
Air filtration within your home is vital to the function of your HVAC equipment, but it also has a serious impact on the quality of the air you breathe. DeVere Insulation Home Performance has experts who can assess your indoor air quality, and it’s an indispensable part of a healthy home assessment. When dust and other debris accumulate within your air ducts and central heating/AC system, it reduces the efficiency and lifespan of the entire system. Even worse, whatever pollutants it collects will be distributed throughout your house and left for you and your family to breathe.
Many people wonder if whole-home air purification systems really work and if they are worth the investment. At DeVere Insulation Home Performance we have seen this become one of the most valuable parts of our healthy home services. Air purification is the only way to clean your home’s air and remove the particles that affect asthma and allergies. Air purification systems can attach to your HVAC system and clean the air within your entire home.
No matter what is impacting the air quality in your home, DeVere Insulation Home Performance’s healthy home services can help. One of our expertly trained team members can review your home and uncover the most significant causes of your home’s poor air quality.
