What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common products may contribute to inferior indoor air quality in your Knoxville home.

This includes:

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

Though they are usually more efficient, newer homes don’t have fresh air the way older residences do. Tight weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and outdoor air out. This provides more energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create particles increasing inside your home.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is suggested. Ventilation systems replace dirty indoor air for more breathable exterior air without giving up energy savings.
