Improve your indoor air quality and make sure the air in your home is fresh, clean and healthy
It has never been more important to ensure the air we breathe is fresh and pure. That’s because traffic emissions and exposure to harmful levels of radon gas is taking a real toll.
Of course we should be able to shut the front door and forget about rising pollution outside. Still, what happens when poor ventilation traps stale, unhealthy air in the very place we should feel safest?
Then there are the numerous indoor sources of pollution we are constantly exposed to. From heating and smoking to damp and mould, our bodies have to withstand a lot.
It’s certainly a worry if you have a respiratory illness or belong to a family with young children and older people.

How can we improve indoor air quality?
We know that one of the unfortunate side-effects of poor-quality insulation is a lack of breathability. That’s why at every home insulation consultation we’ll test the air quality in your home, then install filters to ensure a good flow of fresh, clean air if necessary.
We also offer analysis and testing for those customers who simply want to measure the air they breathe, with or without insulation.
A member of our team will visit your home with specialist measuring equipment to test for radon gas, as well as look at ways to improve ventilation, ambient temperature and general comfort. If you want to combat allergens to guard against breathing problems, we can help with that too.

A one-stop health check for your home
Here’s what else we analyse:
- Smoke pollution from cigarettes that lead to worsening asthma symptoms
- Combustion gases from inadequately vented fireplaces and gas stoves. Carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide cause headaches, dizziness and nausea
- Moulds that breed on damp surfaces
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) or chemicals that are found in everyday household cleaning products, waxes, pesticides and building materials
What our customers say
We are very pleased with the spray foam insulation system and have noticed big difference in the warmth of the house.
The men worked very hard and did a good job. 10/10 for punctuality and cleanliness of the treatment team.Stockport
.......... and since we only had mains electricity power laid on at the bungalow, our hot water had always cost us a fortune using the immersion heater. The Solar Thermal system you installed - especially the twin cylinder layout - means that we don't waste any available power and the running costs of the system are minimal. And we have got hot water! Thank you also for installing the battery backup system to get us over power cuts that we get!
Improving indoor air quality FAQs
Radon is a radioactive gas that is present in the air we breathe outside. However, it can become trapped in poorly-ventilated buildings and the resulting elevated levels of radon gas have been linked to lung problems.
Home test kits typically measure Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) taken from a small sample of air. Not only do we look at VOCs, but we also test for smoke pollution, combustion gases, moulds, allergens and radon. We’ll also look at how air circulates around your home and show you ways to improve ventilation.
Another advantage of using the Noreus team to test indoor air quality is that you won’t have to wait for a report. We will share our results with you as we work around your property, providing you with everything you need to make an informed decision about your health and indoor air quality.
