Indoor air quality problems extend beyond what's simply in the air itself. Indoor
air quality issues affect the temperature of the air as well.
How many times have your received outrageous utility bills because your air conditioner
or furnace had been running all day while you were away at work? Or how often do
you walk into a room only to feel like you need to strip off a layer of clothing
because it's too hot or throw a sweater on because it's too cool?
Out-of-date thermostats and inefficient heaters and air conditioners can radically
affect your comfort level in your home and the money in your pocket book!
Do any of these situations arise in your home? If so, it may be a sign that
you have indoor air quality problems.
- You have a multi-level or split-level floor plan and only one or two thermostats.
- Your upstairs is "an inferno" in the summer and your downstairs is "an ice box"
in the winter.
- You use expensive, noisy, and potentially dangerous portable heaters and/or fans
to stay comfortable in specific areas of your home.
- You have a finished basement, attic, or new addition that is often too hot or cold
- The sun affects one part of your home during the summer or winter making either
that area or the rest of the house unbearable.
- You have rooms with cathedral ceilings or a fireplace.
- You argue about the thermostat setting.
