What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily products may contribute to poor indoor air quality in your Indianapolis home.

This includes:

  • Compounds in [carpeting, furniture and drapes that let off fumes
  • Cleaning products
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are often more efficient, modern homes don’t ventilate the way older homes do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and outdoor air out. This gives higher energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger contaminants accumulating indoors.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems exchange dirty indoor air for fresher exterior air without sacrificing energy savings.
