What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday things may contribute to poor indoor air quality in your Denver home.

This includes:

  • Substances in [carpeting, furniture and window treatments that let off 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 homes do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and outside air out. This provides higher energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause pollutants increasing inside.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems exchange polluted indoor air for cleaner exterior air without sacrificing energy savings.
