How to Keep Your Home Healthy
Sealing leaky HVAC ducts controls fresh air, reduces dust and better controls moisture, improving the air quality in your home.See Rebates
Attic Insulation and Air Sealing
R-44 or greater attic insulation and air sealing help maintain a more consistent temperature, allowing for better humidity and mold/moisture control.See Rebates
Water Heaters and Furnaces
Replacing poorly vented gas water heaters/furnaces with sealed combustion systems or all-electric heat pump systems helps prevent harmful gases.See Rebates
Fireplaces with dirty chimneys or malfunctioning flues should be cleaned and fully operating in order to maintain clean indoor air.
Dryer vents need to be properly installed to prevent humidity and indoor air problems.
Sealing exposed crawlspaces and installing a vapor barrier can reduce or eliminate musty odors in your home.
If you have an attached garage, be mindful to properly ventilate it when using chemical products and never warm your car up in your garage.
