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 give off fumes
  • Cleaning sprays
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are often more efficient, updated homes don’t breathe the way older houses do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and exterior air out. This gives better energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause pollutants building up inside your home.

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