What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday items may contribute to poor indoor air quality in your Albany residence.

This includes:

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

Though they are often more efficient, modern homes don’t ventilate the way older residences do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and exterior air out. This offers better energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause particles accumulating inside your home.

When this happens, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems replace dirty indoor air for fresher outdoor air without giving up energy savings.
