Remodeling is one of the best home improvement calls that anyone could make. Additions and remodels which are well-planned rank in the ten best ROI home improvements with regard to recouping expenses at the time of sale. There are things that you need to know before you even consider a home remodeling project.
Think Ahead (with a Contractor)
Once you have settled on a remodel or an addition, you can talk about your plans with a contractor who is specialized in HVAC services in Griffith Park, before making any arrangements. You do not want to waste your precious money and time, only to discover that you have skipped some essential details of HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning).
Do not ignore a place that is moldy and musty, particularly if you are thinking about a remodel. Moisture issues are common in a basement, in particular. If you are not sure if the space has appropriate humidity levels, you can perform a moisture test. The ideal indoor humidity is somewhere in the 30% to 50% range. If you detect moisture issues or water spots in the basement, you may have to seal the foundation, improve drainage, fix plumbing leaks, and/or add basement waterproofing.
However, if the issue is just high humidity, then it should be possible to keep the moisture levels in your basement under control with an appropriately designed HVAC system.
Get in touch with an HVAC professional to test the humidity and moisture levels in your basement before planning a remodel.
As you may perhaps know, carbon monoxide is a colorless and odorless gas. It is one of the byproducts of combustion. Stoves, water heater, generators, barbecues and furnaces all produce it.
Volatile Organic Compounds and Indoor Air Quality
Volatile organic compounds (VOC) are emitted from common household products. Offgassing occurs when chemicals, VOCs and gases get released into thin air. While volatile organic compounds and offgassing are very dangerous in high doses, these can be managed in an effective way with proper ventilation and handling.
