🤔 Is that air getting in there?

Since our homes aren’t as air tight as they should be, we need to be aware of the contents in the connected spaces.

Why it matters: Air is moving from your connected garage, attic and/or crawl space into your living space.

  • Bringing pollutants with it.

🖼️ The big picture: Reducing the number and kind of pollutants in connected spaces leads to better IAQ (Indoor Air Quality).

🔬 Zoom in: Start by focusing on these two categories:

👉 Combustion appliances —> If you have a gas furnace or water heater in your garage, a closet or attic, ask your HVAC tech to make sure those are venting properly to the outside.

  • Make sure you have CO (Carbon Monoxide) monitors in hallways near any combustion appliance.

👉 Chemicals, gasoline and anything with harmful fumes —> If you’re storing these in an attached garage, those fumes will get into your house.

  • If you wouldn’t store it in your bedroom closet, don’t store it in your attached garage.
