Your Indoor Air Quality
We help you keep your home safe with state of the art combustion analysis tools and in depth carbon monoxide (CO) safety tests.
Breath easy with our healthy air solution such as sub-micron filtration, purification, air duct cleaning and ventilation.
There is no reason be hot and sticky or cold and dry in your own home. C and K has the solutions for your comfort needs.
Carbon Monoxide Leak Prevention, Detection, and Alarms
Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colorless odorless gas that is produced by every fuel-burning appliance. Central heating systems are designed to exhaust combustion gases like CO safely outside of the home but it's important that components including furnaces, flues, and chimneys, are inspected annually and that cracks or damaged parts are properly repaired. Proper maintenance is important even for new furnaces because they can also corrode and leak combustion gases, including carbon monoxide. We offer services to maintain equipment and detect issues before they become a problem.
Advanced Filtration and Air Purification for Particulates and Allergens
Particulate matter looks like dirt and dust to the naked eye, but what is dust composed of? The answer is that dust is made of a little bit of everything. Common household dust can contain anything from dead skin cells, plant matter, and dust mites to potent allergens like pollen and pet dander. Ask about our air filtration, purification, and duct cleaning options to learn how you can reduce particulates and allergens in your home or office. Simply call or use the form below.
Ventilation and Air Purification for Reducing Odors, Gasses, and "Stale" Air.
Often referred to as “stuffy”, stale air is caused by a lack of ventilation which causes buildup of carbon dioxide (CO2) and gasses known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
VOCs include a variety of chemicals that off-gas from everyday household items and products. Some of which may have short and long-term adverse health effects. Concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors (up to 10 times higher) than outdoors. If these and other chemical contaminant sources are not controlled, indoor environmental quality problems can arise, even if a building’s ventilation system is properly designed and well maintained.
An unpleasant effect of indoor gasses, like VOCs, is the odors they can have. This could be from yesterday’s fish dinner, dirty socks in the hamper, or from a more sinister source like mold or chemicals.
The surest option to reduce "stuffiness", gases and odors in the conditioned space is to remove the source but that's not always possible. Call our air quality experts or use the contact form below to see how we can improve your indoor environment with different ventilation and air purification options.
Too little humidity in a conditioned space causes a number of discomforts. Think about Iowa winters; dry irritated skin, and nosebleeds; woodwork can dry out, crack and warp. Another consideration is how humidity affects home temperature. Moist air feels warmer than dry air. With properly humidified air you can set the thermostat to a lower point and feel just as warm. This saves a lot of money on heating costs.
Too much humidity is just as bad too little. It can contribute to that “stuffy” feeling as well as cause other IAQ issues like biological growth and odors. High indoor humidity can cause moisture to condense on windows which warps and rots the frames.
