The function of our homes is to keep us safe and comfortable. At ELEM3NTS, we take the necessary steps to determine the state of your home’s health. Our goal is for you to regain control over your health, comfort, and safety of your home.
In developed countries, people are indoors approximately 80% of the time. Surprisingly, indoor air is often more polluted than outdoor air. Indoor air pollution negatively affects our health by causing an increase in respiratory problems, headaches, fatigue, allergies and a host of other disorders.
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the environmental characteristics inside buildings that may affect human health, comfort, or work performance. IAQ characteristics include the concentrations of pollutants in indoor air, as well as air temperature and humidity.
Example pollutants include gases and particles released by molds and bacteria and volatile organic compounds emitted by some building products, furnishings, and consumer products. We also bring toxic chemicals into the house in our clothes, cleaning and hygiene products, and countless others.
IAQ conditions depend upon the design, construction, maintenance, and operation of a building and on the outdoor environmental conditions. Green building encourages use of products and materials that reduce or eliminate these sources of indoor pollution. Adequate ventilation is critical to keeping and maintaining indoor air quality for healthier living. Green building improves indoor air quality and keeps you comfortable and healthy.
Thermal Comfort is achieved when the indoor conditions of a home are just the right temperature for all occupants.
Starting with good energy design, green building helps to ensure that your home is inherently more comfortable.
To create a comfortable environment
for homeowners, we focus our attention
on the design of the building's envelope,
design and operation of the building's heating and air conditioning systems.
Safety, a really dangerous indoor pollutant is Carbon Monoxide (CO). Carbon Monoxide is a toxic gas released by combustion appliances and it is the cause of injury and death.
Carbon Monoxide leaks can be found in stoves; ovens; hot water heaters; fireplaces; heating systems and gas pipes. Because we care about the health and safety of your and your family, during our assessment we test for Carbon Monoxide (CO) leaks.
