As homes become more energy efficient, well sealed and insulated, indoor air quality (IAQ) has become more important to your healthy home. In addition, today’s Southern California homes may contain chemicals, gases and other airborne matter that can make your family feel uncomfortable or increase allergies and respiratory problems. Efficient homes now require good, controlled ventilation to remove the bad air and bring in fresh air.
Indoor Pollution Has Many Sources
Many everyday activities and household goods are the source of much of the indoor air pollution in your home. Here are some of the substances found in many homes:
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like formaldehyde that are used in plastics, fabrics and other household products.
Combustion gases from furnaces, cook stoves, fireplaces, including carbon monoxide
Particulates, including smoke and dust
Allergens, including pollen and pet dander
Biological including bacteria, viruses and mold spores
