NADCA Alliance Tackles IAQ

WASHINGTON, DC — The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) announced that it has formed an alliance with Aircuity Inc. in order to respond to a rise in health problems attributed to poor indoor air quality (IAQ). The goal of the alliance is to help property owners, managers, and homeowners control IAQ in commercial and residential spaces, including office buildings, healthcare facilities, schools, and light industrial buildings.

NADCA and Aircuity will begin by offering IAQ screening. NADCA-certified contractors, using the Aircuity IAQ Evaluation System, will monitor temperature, relative humidity, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, airborne particulates, total volatile organic compounds, molds, ozone, and radon. The evaluation system is comprised of a portable air monitoring and sampling unit, a Web-based reporting system, and an artificial intelligence-based IAQ diagnosis system.

“Our industry is, and always has been, vital to the upkeep of workplace and residential air quality,” said Aaron Mindel, executive director of NADCA. “As such, we aim to constantly improve our ability to identify and react to IAQ problems. This alliance puts NADCA-certified professionals in the best possible position to measure and monitor a building’s environ-mental performance, identify areas of concern or potential concern, and single out the proper mediation methods.”
