Causes of Indoor Air Pollution

When it comes to indoor air pollution, the largest culprit tends to be the same thing that keeps your HVAC equipment efficient. Modern homes are incredibly well sealed, so we keep temperature-controlled air in and outdoor air out. However, this results in contaminants — dust, dander, pollen, mold — becoming trapped in our homes. The problem compounds over time, resulting in poor air quality.

There are other sources as well, such as VOCs from cleaning products, cooking oils and grease, smoke, a lack of HVAC maintenance, and pet dander.

FAQs About Indoor Air Quality

What are the 4 major indoor air pollutants?

There are four primary categories of indoor air pollutants: VOCs, chemical, biological, and combustion byproducts. VOCs include things like formaldehyde that are off-gassed from building materials like plywood, while chemical pollutants include things like radon, lead, and pesticides that may be found within your home. Biological pollutants include allergens like pet dander, mold spores, and dust mites, while combustion byproducts include smoke, soot, and carbon monoxide that are released when burning wood, coal, natural gas, or other fuels.

How can I check the air quality in my home?

There are consumer air quality monitors available to track indoor air quality, but they can be costly and may not be too accurate. If you are concerned about your indoor air quality, our team at ComforTemp can do in-depth air quality testing and recommend the best air cleaning solutions for your budget.

What devices maintain indoor air quality?

Several types of devices can clean the air and improve air quality. Ionic or electrostatic air purifiers use charged particles to remove air pollutants, while air filtering systems use materials with small pores to filter the air. UV air purifiers use ultraviolet light to kill microorganisms and destroy other undesirable particles. To learn which air cleaning solution is the best for your home, talk to our air quality experts at ComforTemp.

How can I improve the air quality in my house?

There are several things that you can do to improve the air quality of your home yourself. Replace the air filter in your HVAC system often, and schedule preventive maintenance annually. Use the exhaust fans when cooking or showering, and keep the air ducts clean and free of debris. Dust often with electrostatic cloths to trap the particles and vacuum regularly using a machine with a HEPA filter. Finally, add plants to naturally filter the air — ficus trees, peace lilies, and snake plants are stylish, widely available choices.

How can I improve my humidity levels?

If your home has excessive humidity, you can add a dehumidifier to remove moisture using a process similar to an air conditioner. For a home that is too dry, a humidifier can add moisture to the air.
