What Is a Certified Environmental Professional?
A Certified Environmental Professional passes a rigorous set of criteria established by the American Council for Accredited Certification. CIEC certified consultants must have 8 years of consulting experience addressing indoor environmental issues including asbestos, lead, HVAC systems, building science, chemicals, mold, and microbial contamination. Certified Environmental Professional staff must demonstrate their knowledge, education and experience in these fields in a variety of residential and commercial settings.
ABEL Heating and Cooling has passed these certification tests with flying colors. Our Certified Indoor Environmental Consultant has addressed many complex indoor air quality problems successfully. Some of these included:
- A church in which an old boiler’s fiber heat insulation caved in. Unknown to the staff or congregation, unhealthy levels of CO2 were released into the church’s basement, making anyone who walked into the basement sick. We were able to find and fix the problem.
- Employees at a workspace getting mysterious rashes on their arms. We were able to find the culprit, a cleaning solution sprayed by the evening janitorial staff onto the desk surface.
- A testing station for diesel engines that had intermittent air quality issues. We determined that on hot, humid days, air from the vent stacks flowed back into the building. The fumes caused workers to feel sick. Improving the ventilation so that it worked efficiently on both hot and cold days improved the indoor air quality. Installation of carbon pleat filters on their system also helped improve air quality.
These are just a few examples of how ABEL Heating and Cooling’s experience and training has helped improve the environment of our customers. It takes technicians both trained and experienced in indoor air quality, environmental hazards, heating, cooling and plumbing systems to understand how various systems interact to cause environmental hazards. Trust the experts at ABEL Heating and Cooling to get to the bottom of mysterious “sick building” syndrome for you.
