What causes indoor air pollution?

Many daily things may cause bad indoor air quality in your Nashville home.

This includes:

  • Chemicals in [carpet, furniture and window treatments that let off fumes
  • Cleaning sprays
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are usually more efficient, updated homes don’t ventilate the way older houses do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and exterior air out. This gives increased energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger pollutants building up inside your home.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems swap out contaminated indoor air for more breathable outside air without compromising energy savings.
