Indoor Air Quality
One of our goals at Pinnacle is to create healthy indoor living environments, and nothing is more important than the air we breathe. It is a proven fact that indoor air pollution is far worse than air we breathe outside. The average American spends approximately 90% of their time indoors, so indoor air pollution poses a larger health risk than outdoor pollution. In fact, indoor air pollution levels can be two to five times (even as much as one hundred times) the levels of outdoor air pollution, even in large cities, and industrialized areas. This problem is especially prevalent in new homes with more air tight construction.

Poor air quality leads to breathing problems such as asthma and poor health in general. Inadequate home ventilation also causes additional problems from increased moisture levels. Moisture damages homes by causing rot and can create serious health conditions. Excessive moisture migrates through the walls and ceiling too which will dampen insulation in the building envelope and cause a loss of insulation values in addition to promoting mold growth.

These problems cannot only be resolved but create a superior living environment by installing heat exchange equipment that provides fresh outside air while keeping the homes heat in or exterior heat out at predetermined levels of air exchange. Other measures can also be taken to remove contaminants from installing proper filtering devices, removing harsh cleaning products used in the home, using low or no VOC building materials and by limiting carpets in the home which trap dust, mites, mold and dander as well as other things.

Let us put our experience to work for you to create the ultimate living environment.
