Homeowners in Nevada can use an indoor air quality test to measure the amount of air pollutants in their homes. Assessing your home for the presence of indoor air pollution can be important if you’re having health issues such as:
- Running, Itchy Eyes
- Asthma or Shortness of Breath
You can identify possible causes for these issues with an air quality test. But how much does a home indoor air quality test cost? You can find the answers to your questions about home air quality tests right here with Ambient Edge. You can also call us at (888) 240-8283 for additional information.
What Are Home Indoor Air Quality Tests?
Indoor air quality tests can check the levels of various contaminants in the air in your home. Tests can measure levels of:
- Biological Contaminants
- Chemical Contaminants
- Combustion Contaminants
Some tests are designed to test for a wide range of contaminants. Other tests will only measure levels for one specific pollutant. The prices will vary based on the spectrum of tests included in the assessment you select.
You may choose to purchase and complete an indoor air quality test on your own. You also have the option of hiring professionals to complete an indoor air quality assessment. These options come with different price tags and we’ll discuss them below.
What Will You Pay for a DIY Home Air Quality Test?
A do-it-yourself air inspection kit can allow you to assess pollutants on your own. Generally, a DIY home air quality test will be less expensive than hiring professionals. A full analysis kit could cost between $150 – $500. If you are testing for specific pollutants, you could expect the following prices:
- Allergens: $75-$100
- Asbestos: $100-$125
- Carbon Monoxide: $40-$50
- Mold: $30-50
- Radon: $15-$30
- VOCs: $100-$150
You will likely have to mail your DIY air testing kit off for testing after gathering samples. You will then receive information about your air quality, which can allow you to develop a plan to address any air pollution issues you discover.
What Does Total Professional Home Indoor Air Quality Testing Cost?
You can get professional help assessing your levels of indoor air pollutants. Professional air quality testing is generally more expensive than DIY options, but you can get immediate answers and feel confident that the tests are completed properly.
You may be able to get a basic test for all pollutants for an average cost of around $440 in Las Vegas. A more thorough test can increase the cost to around $1,000.
Note that, in some cases, companies will set prices for air quality tests based on the square footage of your property. You may expect prices around:
- $200-$300 for a Home Under 1,000 Square Feet
- $300-$500 for a Home with 1,000-2,500 Square Feet
- $500-$1,000 for a Home Above 2,5000 Square Feet
Can You Test for Specific Pollutants with Professional Air Quality Testing?
You should be aware that you do not have to have your home professionally tested for all air pollutants. Some homeowners have a good idea about the pollutant they are facing, and they only want to test for one specific contaminant.
Professional companies may perform specific air quality tests for:
- Allergens: $100-$200
- Asbestos: $200-$800
- Carbon Monoxide: $100-$200
- Mold: $300-$1,000
- Radon: $150-$800
- VOCs: $200-$300
Note that these costs are tied strictly to air quality tests. They do not cover the costs for the removal of air pollutants in your home.
How Are Indoor Air Pollutants Removed in Nevada?
You have options if you complete an indoor air quality test and discover that you have high levels of air pollutants. You may be able to reduce pollutants by regularly changing your air filters. You should remove the sources of the contaminant if at all possible.
Removing air contaminants on your own can be difficult, especially if you are dealing with mold and other particles that spread quickly. Particulates can even get caught in your ductwork, requiring a thorough air duct cleaning.
Keeping your HVAC system well maintained and cleaned can help filter out air pollutants, increasing your air quality and allowing you to breathe easier in your home. You may also need to contact a professional company to clean up some issues.
