The air in your Opelika, Alabama, home might smell fresh and clean. But how do you know whether your indoor air is as pure as it could be? Learn how an indoor air quality inspection can help you breathe easier and improve your quality of life.

Air Quality Tests

In your home, poor air quality can stem from a number of different factors. High humidity levels, poor ventilation, and excessive dust are just a few issues that can cause indoor air pollution.

Sensigreen technicians start the air quality inspection process with a series of tests. These results help us get to the root of the problem and make effective recommendations. For instance, your air quality could benefit from a combination of frequent vacuuming and a whole-house air purifier, or you may need to reduce household chemical usage and invest in an energy-recovery ventilator.

Ductwork Checks

Our inspections don’t end with air quality testing. We’ll also check your home’s ductwork to determine whether it’s contributing to unhealthy air quality.

In an ideal world, your ducts seamlessly transport conditioned air from your HVAC system throughout your home. In reality, however, many duct systems develop cracks, leaks, and holes over time. These small duct issues can lead to dust accumulation and mold growth, which can cause serious air quality problems in your home. If your ducts have developed cracks or leaks, we may recommend duct sealing or duct cleaning.

HVAC Inspections

Your HVAC system plays a major role in keeping your home’s air clean. Age and operational issues can cause your HVAC system to compromise your air quality, though.

Our experienced techs will advise you about the status of your HVAC system, and if necessary, we’ll recommend ways to improve its performance. We might suggest changing the air filter frequently for cleaner air, or we may recommend upgrading your HVAC system to take advantage of new developments in efficiency and air quality technology.
