Improving Your Indoor Air Quality
Are you ever concerned about indoor air quality? Are you aware of some of the main factors that influence the quality of the air you breathe inside your home? Here are just a few of the most common:

  • Moisture & Humidity –You may be familiar with the cliché that “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This couldn’t be truer when it comes to the relationship between the indoor air quality of your home and moisture and humidity. It’s important to be on the lookout for potential sources of water and entry points for moisture to get into your home. Look closely at your basement or crawlspace. Once water damage occurs in these areas, it can lead to structural damage or mold growth, which will negatively impact the air quality inside your home.
  • Structural Integrity — At AppleBlossom Energy, we provide many services that can improve the integrity of the barrier between the living space in your home and air from your crawlspace, attic, or outside. We’d be happy to consult with you about our services, such as a good system of rain gutters, installing a crawl space vapor barrier, air sealing, or insulating.
  • Other Factors – The indoor air quality of your home can also be influenced by what you choose to bring inside your home. Indoor pets and smoking inside may be reasons you would want to seek additional services for regularly cleaning the ventilation system inside your home.
