What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily products may contribute to bad indoor air quality in your Buffalo home.

This includes:

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

Though they are typically more efficient, updated homes don’t breathe the way older residences do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and outside air out. This gives more energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create pollutants building up inside.

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