What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily products may cause inferior indoor air quality in your North America residence.

This includes:

  • Chemicals in [flooring, furniture and drapes that let off fumes
  • Cleaning sprays
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are often more efficient, newer homes don’t breathe the way older houses do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outdoor air out. This offers higher energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause particles building up indoors.

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems replace contaminated indoor air for fresher exterior air without giving up energy savings.
