What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday items may cause poor indoor air quality in your Louisville residence.

This includes:

  • Chemicals in [carpet, furniture and window treatments that emit fumes
  • Cleaning sprays
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are typically more efficient, modern homes don’t breathe the way older residences do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outdoor air out. This provides higher energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create pollutants increasing indoors.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems replace contaminated inside air for cleaner outside air without compromising energy savings.
