What causes indoor air pollution?

Many everyday items may cause inferior indoor air quality in your Philadelphia home.

This includes:

  • Substances in [flooring, furniture and drapes that let 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. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and outside air out. This offers more energy savings, but the lowered exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause contaminants accumulating inside your home.

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