What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common items may cause bad indoor air quality in your Calgary house.

This includes:

  • Chemicals in [carpet, furniture and drapes that emit fumes
  • Cleaning products
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are typically more efficient, updated homes don’t have fresh air the way older residences do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep interior air in and exterior air out. This provides better energy savings, but the decreased exchange of outdoor and indoor air can trigger particles accumulating inside.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems replace polluted interior air for more breathable outside air without compromising energy savings.
