Unpleasant odors can come from many sources in your home or building, and can worsen as temperature and humidity levels go up. Odors, which are actually a bunch of tiny gas particles that have accumulated in a non-ventilated area, usually dissipate on their own, but some do not and can be toxic if inhaled over long periods.  Priority Energy will identify the source of the bad smell and recommend the best solution for remediating and/or eliminating the root cause.  

Some of the many odor-causing culprits (according to the CDC) include:

  • Building materials
  • Furnishings
  • Plumbing drains
  • Flue gases
  • Chimney creosote
  • Mold
  • Mildew
  • Bacteria
  • Septic or sewer gases
  • HVAC ductwork
  • Air handlers
  • Contaminated concrete

Solutions for Eliminating Indoor Odors

In most cases, persistent indoor odors are related to an imbalance in the above mentioned air quality components (temperature, moisture, particulates and pollutants) and can be easily eliminated once the main source of the problem is located and identified.

Our odor mitigation solutions may include:

  • Adding a carbon-based filter to the furnace.Carbon is activated when it comes in contact with steam. This process creates millions of extremely tiny pores that are highly absorbent and will trap tiny particles like odors and gases.

  • Improving ventilation with a whole-home system or a spot-specific approach for diluting contaminants. Heat Recovery Ventilation (HRV) or Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV) systems are energy efficient, compact units that bring fresh air inside while taking out equal amounts of stale air.

  • Installing a PCO system. Photocatalytic oxidation is achieved when UV light rays interact with a titanium-coated filter to create highly reactive electrons that attack bacteria and VOCs. PCO air cleaners can fit on a table, bookshelf or can even be put inside the ductwork.

If you’re looking to eliminate an unpleasant smell in your home or building, look no further. Contact Priority Energy today to schedule an appointment.

  • I just wanted to send this message to all you and say GREAT JOB!  We had a rough inspection today and passed for the Woodward Ave. house. The inspector told us "if every house I inspected looked like this one I would be out a job".

  • We were so impressed with the amount of information the Priority Energy technicians gave us during our ENERGY AUDIT.  If you are buying a house, I would strongly recommend having them do an energy audit on it, in addition to your usual home inspection.

  • I have a two story home built in the mid seventies. Lots of temperature fluctuation between the floors. The Aeroseal process dramatically increased the air flow to the second floor. Good experience. The company was very informative, answered a lot of questions.

  • Thank You so much for the super-fast turn around of our Manual J, D and S reprt for the Village of Glen Ellyn. Our original Manual J kept getting kicked back to us for corrections but your calculations/report got approved instantly-no questions asked and no more permit delays!

    Kim, Glen Ellyn, IL
  • Thank you. Truly. I appreciate you taking the time to clarify things for me and then going above and beyond to ensure that my CEUs are handled for our current RESNET cycle. You’ve always been kind to me and this is another shining example of that.
