What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily things may create inferior indoor air quality in your Elkhart house.

This includes:

  • Chemicals in [carpet, furniture and window treatments that emit fumes
  • Cleaning sprays
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are typically more efficient, newer homes don’t ventilate the way older residences do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outdoor air out. This offers increased energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause pollutants increasing indoors.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems exchange polluted inside air for fresher outside air without sacrificing energy savings.
