What Causes Losses in Indoor Air Quality?

Our Indoor Air Quality Products

What is indoor air quality? Indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the concentration of pollutants within your home. According to the EPA, indoor air can contain up to 100 times more pollutants than outdoor air. Since most people spend the majority of their time indoors, maintaining clean air is crucial for health and comfort.

What causes indoor air pollution? Indoor air pollution can stem from various sources, including:

  • Carpeting
  • Furniture
  • Household fabrics
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paints
  • Personal care products

Newer homes designed for energy efficiency tend to be more tightly sealed, reducing air circulation and increasing the potential for pollutant build-up.

How can I improve my indoor air quality? Several steps can help enhance your indoor air quality:

  1. Identify Pollution Sources: Determine what’s causing the pollution to choose appropriate air quality products or services.
  2. Improve Ventilation: Ensure good ventilation to circulate air and reduce contaminant build-up.
  3. Purify the Air: Your HVAC system alone is not sufficient; consider additional air purification systems.
  4. Install Advanced Air Filters: Opt for filters that capture odors, bacteria, and micro-contaminants for better air quality.

How is indoor air quality hazardous to health? Poor IAQ can lead to numerous health issues, particularly for individuals with asthma or allergies. Studies indicate that up to 50% of illnesses are linked to or exacerbated by indoor air pollution.

Is the air inside my home really more polluted than the air outside? Yes, the EPA states that indoor air can be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. Unlike outdoor air, indoor air is trapped, leading to the accumulation of pollutants.

What are the benefits of improving indoor air quality? Enhancing IAQ can greatly benefit everyone in your household, particularly those with allergies and asthma. IAQ systems that purify and clean the air can alleviate symptoms and decrease exposure to pollutants, reducing health risks.
