The Indoor Environmental Consultants (IEC) Building IAQ Performance Evaluation helps you maintain your building and building systems at optimum indoor air quality performance levels. This program combines building envelope and HVAC hygiene inspections with baseline IAQ parameter testing to review overall indoor air quality performance. It’s a comprehensive, cost effective, state-of-the-art building IAQ performance evaluation that can help you establish and maintain a healthy, safe, and cost-saving indoor environment. Perhaps best of all, it’s a process that can help identify and solve problems before they start.
Building Envelope Issues
The IEC consultant will observe and document building envelope conditions through wall and roof inspections for water intrusion and insulation failures. Inspections will include the use of thermal imaging cameras, moisture meters, and internal wall cavity borescope inspections as indicated. Exterior wall inspection will document roof drainage, ground slope, foundation height, weather-proofing, and weep hole performance.
HVAC Hygiene Inspection
The IEC consultant will observe and document the hygienic condition of HVAC components including blower fans, coils, condensate drip pans, return air plenums, and supply and return air ductwork. Carbon dioxide measurements will evaluate the effectiveness of building ventilation.
Indoor Air Quality Baseline Testing
The IEC Building Performance Evaluation includes analysis of certain key indoor environmental parameters and reviewing overall indoor air quality relative to industry standards and other recommended guidelines. IEC utilizes one of the most sophisticated instruments available to the industry – the Aircuity Building Performance Monitor.
The Aircuity monitor continuously measures environmental data on-site including:
- Total Volatile Compounds (TVOC Index)
- Airborne Particles (Large and Small)
- Carbon Monoxide
- Carbon Dioxide
- Relative Humidity
In addition to the real-time monitoring IEC will collect samples for third party laboratory testing, which may include:
- Total Fungal Bioaerosols
- TVOCs, Methane, Carbon Monoxide, and Carbon Dioxide
- Total and Respirable Particulates
