What is Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)?
IAQ is a term which refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), indoor air can be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air.
With children being vulnerable to airborne contaminates such as indoor toxic compounds, and knowing that air purification helps asthmatic symptoms, Ocean State Air Solutions, Inc. has partnered up with Field Controls to offer you a "Healthy Home System".
Come talk to us and see what you can do to make your home, a Healthy Home.
Find Out What You're Breathing!
So what is the air quality in your home? Now you can find out. The AirAdvice Indoor Air AnalysisTM pinpoints key indoor air quality problems (IAQ) that can affect you and your family's health, as well as their comfort and safety. To perform the AirAdvice Indoor Air AnalysisTM, we will place an AirAdvice IAQ monitor in your home for three days to measure the air you're breathing under real living conditions..
Indoor Air Pollution Can Trigger Asthma and Allergies.
Indoor air pollution can trigger allergic reactions, asthma attacks, and other respiratory symptoms. Children, the elderly, and even healthy adults can experience fatigue, nausea, headaches, scratchy throat, and nasal irritation. New homes are constructed with tighter windows and doors to save energy, but they also keep fresh air out. Without adequate indoor air circulation, pollutants can build up over time, leading to poor indoor air quality. Most homes may not be properly equipped to filter and purify indoor air.
Products and materials present in our homes constantly emit chemicals, called VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) into the air. See this handout for information about how an IAQ Home Survey™ test can give you peace-of-mind and put you on the path to a healthier home. Ocean State Air Solutions can also perform a Tobacco Smoke Check™ Air test to detect residual Tobacco Smoke in indoor environments.
Continuous, in place monitoring systems, provide us with a comprehensive analysis of the 6 key factors of Indoor Air Quality and Comfort. Along with our visual inspection of your home or business, this will help us pinpoint problems and suggest solutions.
