What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common items may cause poor indoor air quality in your Tempe house.

This includes:

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

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

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems exchange polluted inside air for cleaner exterior air without giving up energy savings.
