Indoor Air Quality

Lets face it, using air conditioners has become more affordable and more popular with homes and apartments in the New York area. 30 years ago it was more of a luxury. Now we can pick up an efficient window unit for $100-$200. 

Whats the problem? We are keeping our windows shut now the majority of months out of the year. Whats wrong with this? Perhaps a lot if your indoor air is something you shouldn't be trapped in for so long.

So, how do you know if your air is quality air? There are many factors at play. The number of people, pets, carpets, cleaning agents, fuels, combustion appliances, bathroom exhausts, air tightness to the outside, to your attic, to your crawlspace. All these can feel overwhelming.

Luckily, a BPI certified technician is trained to review these things with you. The process is called a home energy audit. This series of tests been done on hundreds of thousands of homes across the New York and the rest of the country.

Often air sealing and adding insulation to the home is an effective way to increase the indoor air quality inside the home. Most of the time this means we air seal the attic and any accessible parts of the basement or crawlspace. Sealing these holes means the nasty air is not going to travel into the living space so much. Increasing indoor air quality. 

Attic insulation and crawl space insulation will also reduce heating and cooling loss which slows down the nasty crawlspace air from entering into the living space. We carry many types of attic insulation and insulation for your crawlspace. These include spray foam both open cell spray foam insulation and closed cell spray foam insulation. We also carry a cellulose insulation and fiberglass insulation.
