What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily things may create poor indoor air quality in your Boise residence.

This includes:

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

Though they are usually more efficient, updated homes don’t ventilate the way older houses do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outdoor air out. This offers more energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger pollutants accumulating indoors.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems replace contaminated interior air for fresher exterior air without compromising energy savings.
