What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily products may create inferior indoor air quality in your Houston home.

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 usually more efficient, newer homes don’t breathe the way older houses do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and exterior air out. This provides more energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger pollutants building up inside.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems replace contaminated indoor air for fresher outdoor air without sacrificing energy savings.
