What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday items may cause inferior indoor air quality in your Austin 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 often more efficient, updated homes don’t have fresh air the way older houses do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and exterior air out. This provides more energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause contaminants increasing inside your home.

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems replace polluted inside air for more breathable outside air without compromising energy savings.
