Indoor Air Quality Solutions
Protecting your family from pollutants & serious health problems
Enlarge this graphic to learn about hidden indoor air contaminants and where they can be found in your home.
It's never been more important to pay attention to the indoor air quality in your home or building. Statistics show that residents of the U.S. and Canada spend about 90% of their time indoors, maximizing possible exposure to a wide range of indoor air pollutants.
As houses are built more airtight to improve energy efficiency, concentrations of indoor air pollutants increase, along with the negative physical reactions to unseen contaminants in the air. Some indoor air pollutants cause allergic reactions and respiratory issues, others can be lethal, and all are invisible and difficult to detect without special tests and equipment.
Your local National Radon Defense specialist has the training and the equipment to protect homeowners and families from indoor air pollution. Our expertise encompasses radioactive radon gas - one of the most deadly of all indoor air pollutants - and many other contaminants, including mold, dust, carbon monoxide, pollen, pet dander, and smoke.

How to test indoor air quality
Indoor air pollutants can be hidden throughout your property - and even if they are common, they can have serious consequences on the health of those inside. With AirAdvice for Homes™, National Radon Defense accurately tests the indoor air quality and pinpoints issues within your home or building, including:
- Particle allergens
- Chemical pollutants
- Carbon monoxide
- Carbon dioxide
- Low or high humidity
- Temperature issues
After the test is complete, the AirAdvice for Homes™ monitor will send 5 to 7 days worth of data to their servers. Your local specialist will then deliver these results, explain the comfort and safety concerns, as well as solutions to create a healthier, more pleasant environment.
How to improve indoor air quality
National Radon Defense specialists are uniquely trained to resolve all your property's indoor air quality problems. Depending on the issue, we can tailor solutions to your home or building, including:
- Energy recovery ventilation (ERV): An ERV system refreshes stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air, improves the ventilation within your property, and creates a way for indoor air pollutants and foul odors to escape.
- Breathe EZ Air Cleaner: Standard HVAC filters catch large dust particles but cannot trap small contaminants and odors – this means your unit will spread these pollutants throughout the property. The Breathe EZ Air Cleaner charges these contaminants, making them cling to the filter media. With carbon strips, the system also absorbs foul odors and hazardous chemicals.
- Breathe EZ UVC Light: Mold growth is a common problem for HVAC systems. That is why we install the Breathe EZ UVC light inside the unit, as the electromagnetic frequency it emits kills mold spores and other bacteria. This improves the indoor air quality by assuring the air that your heating and cooling system circulates is safe and comfortable.
- Duct cleaning: Dust and other contaminants can buildup in the ductwork and air handler of your HVAC system. That is why our technicians brush, vacuum, and clean the debris inside ducts, improving the indoor air quality by assuring your system circulates clean, fresh, and comfortable air.
- Basement & crawl space dehumidifiers: Since below-grade spaces are commonly dark and damp, it is important to keep the humidity below 60% to prevent mold and mildew growth. That is why National Radon Defense dealers offer a dehumidifier that can handle any situation, including easy to maintain environments and severe conditions.
- Radon mitigation: If your property has had radon testing and levels are at 4 pCi/L or higher, the Environmental Protection Agency recommends installing a reliable radon mitigation system. A radon mitigation system is customized to your property to redirect the cancer-causing gas outside.
Indoor air quality monitor
Improving your property's indoor air quality also means assuring it is radon-free. Since radon is odorless, tasteless, and invisible, it is undetectable to human senses. Radon exposure is also the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S., making fast and reliable testing a must.
The specialists at National Radon Defense provides accurate radon testing with our continuous radon monitor, which tracks concentrations of the cancer-causing gas over 3 to 5 days.
What to expect during a radon test:
- Your local indoor air quality specialist will install the continuous radon monitor in the best location of the property, which is usually the lowest possible living space. They will then leave the system to monitor levels over the next 3 to 5 days.
- The continuous radon monitoring system collects data through four passive chambers that work systematically with each other to deliver highly accurate results. Once the test is complete, the monitor delivers the data to your specialist via Bluetooth.
- During the next appointment, your specialist will provide you with a detailed radon report, explain the results, and help you determine the best course of action to lower radon levels and improve the overall indoor air quality.
