The IAQ Problems to Watch Out For
Not all the indicators are the same. Here are a few of the IAQ problems you should watch out for this winter.
Has your home started to smell a little funky? You might have resorted to cleaning more often, lighting candles, or even running out to the store to back your home up with scented plug-ins. You can do everything under the sun, but it seems that your home always has an unpleasant smell.
We want you to take a step back and assess this further. When do you notice this smell? Is it often after you run your home’s heater? This is a sign that you could actually have significant trouble with your home’s furnace. Furnace troubles that are scent-based are often a sign that something is leaking. We can handle it.
