What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday products may contribute to bad indoor air quality in your Longmont house.

This includes:

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

Though they are usually more efficient, updated homes don’t have fresh air the way older houses do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outside air out. This gives more energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger contaminants building up indoors.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems swap out contaminated indoor air for cleaner exterior air without giving up energy savings.
