What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily things may cause poor indoor air quality in your San Antonio home.

This includes:

  • Compounds in [flooring, furniture and drapery that give off fumes
  • Cleaning sprays
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

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

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems exchange dirty indoor air for cleaner outdoor air without giving up energy savings.
