What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily products may cause inferior indoor air quality in your Austin home.

This includes:

  • Compounds in [carpet, furniture and drapes that emit fumes
  • Cleaning sprays
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are usually more efficient, updated homes don’t have fresh air the way older houses do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and exterior air out. This offers higher energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause pollutants accumulating inside your home.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems swap out dirty inside air for fresher outside air without compromising energy savings.
