Should I Get An Air Quality Test For My Home?

Do I Need To Test My Air?

The quality of indoor air is difficult to determine without having testing done because there are many different possible pollutants that can be present, and the sources of pollutants often overlap. This means it could be difficult for someone not trained in inspection techniques to find where problems lie. Therefore, it is important to seek HVAC services in Toronto and other areas for air quality testing in case these two things apply:

1. If there are any health problems that might be related to the air quality, such as respiratory issues or allergies;

2. Pets that spend much time inside may have allergic reactions or show signs of illness.

The Importance Of Air Quality Testing

The issue of indoor air quality can be elusive, and it's possible that many people do not realize just how bad the levels of some pollutants may be. For example, some contaminants might occur naturally indoors or might get in through small cracks around windows or doors or even vents, but never get out again.

Although they may not cause serious health problems, they can still be present in high enough concentrations to make people and pets sick. Besides, some pollutants are more harmful at certain times of the year or during special periods of life, so air quality testing is important no matter if people think their indoor environment is safe or not.

So, the best way to check indoor air quality at home is with a qualified professional who can perform both general testing and specific tests for different pollutants that may be present in low levels.

How To Improve Air Quality If The Results Are Not Satisfactory?

The first step is understanding what kind of pollutants are likely to present in levels that could be harmful to health. Then it's possible for people to adjust their daily habits and routines, as well as use HVAC systems, humidifiers, and air cleaners to manage and monitor air quality. Not all pollutants can be eliminated, but it's always possible to reduce their levels in order to make the indoor environment safer for everyone.

For example, replacing old furniture, carpets, and building insulation is a way to improve indoor environmental quality inside buildings or homes. In addition, there are some other practical recommendations, such as opening windows for a while after cooking, cleaning air ducts every few years, and avoiding keeping house doors closed too often. Seeking professional HVAC maintenance is a great way to keep your home clean and healthy.

Client Testimonials

  • We had an urgent venting issue that meant our gas line was turned off until it could be resolved, so we needed immediate support so we could have heat/hot water in our house again. Their office called me within 30 mins of my request on Home Stars and were super communicative throughout. Ronnie and his partner who came this morning were incredibly informative, kind, and answered all our questions (not to mention very respectful of our home by putting on shoe covers when they came inside). Their excellent and timely work meant our problem was resolved in under 18 hours from the time the issue was identified. Highly recommend!

  • I don't usually leave reviews. I was enthusiastic to leave one for A Plus Quality Inc. It's a shame that other companies don't exist like Shaq and his team. They are genuinely the good ol' fashioned group that take care and service your needs from end to end. I'd be happy to recommend them to family, friends and collegues. Thank you and Happy Holidays! - Anthony

  • ''A Plus Quality Inc/Heating and Cooling Services'' bailed me out of a difficult situation. My furnace quit with -18C° temperatures at 8pm on a Saturday. We had an infant at home and the house was cooling dramatically. By 10pm one of their technicians, Jack arrived and was able to show me how dangerous my situation really was. By 10am Sunday morning another technician, Dave began the installation of a new furnace. Shortly after, Jack joined in. Each gentleman was friendly, informative and answered all subsequent questions. Thank you for going above and beyond. Would highly recommend both technicians and the company they represent.

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • How do I know what size unit I need?
    If you have any problems with your system, you should contact the contractor who installed the units. All our systems are covered by a 5 year parts, 7 year compressor limited warranty
  • Why is there ice building up on the copper pipes?

    There can be many reasons why the refrigerant pipes are freezing up but the most common issue is low refrigerant levels. If your AC unit has ice buildup turn off the unit for at least 4 hours and call us at 416-410-0337

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.
