What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily products may contribute to poor indoor air quality in your Edmonton home.

This includes:

  • Substances in [carpeting, furniture and drapery that let off fumes
  • Cleaning products
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

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

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems swap out contaminated indoor air for cleaner exterior air without sacrificing energy savings.
