As modern homes have become increasingly energy-efficient (and inadequately ventilated), poor indoor air quality has become common place. Airborne pollutants in your home can cause serious harm to you and your family, contributing to health issues such as allergies and asthma, headaches, brain fog, and even cancer. Steven Hergott is an expert on indoor air quality, and in Healthy Harmless Home, he explains what causes air-quality problems and offers solutions for improving the air in your home. Within these pages, you'll discover how to test for mold, volatile organic compounds, carbon monoxide, and radon, and what to do if you find them. And you'll learn how to proactively minimize toxins by preventing water leaks, controlling indoor moisture levels, and reducing dust. This book is full of practical, detailed advice on which HVAC solutions most effectively address air-quality concerns. It includes specific recommendations for equipment that features the most cutting-edge technologies available today. You'll even get a checklist of action steps to help you transform your home from an unhealthy space into a safe, healthy haven.
