What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily items may create bad indoor air quality in your the Wasatch Front region residence.

This includes:

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

Though they are typically more efficient, updated homes don’t ventilate the way older homes do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and outside air out. This gives better energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause pollutants accumulating inside your home.

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems swap out contaminated inside air for fresher outdoor air without giving up energy savings.
