Residential Indoor Air Quality Services

Why Is Indoor Air Quality Important?

On average, indoor air can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air, which is why the EPA ranked it among the top 5 risks to human health. Homeowners can’t see most dust particles, but dust – in addition to pet dander and other allergens – can easily be breathed in and cause respiratory issues. While these dust particles and allergens don’t do much damage in small amounts, allowing dust and dander to collect can lead to more serious issues, particularly for asthma sufferers.

What Can You Do To Improve Your Indoor Air Quality?

3 simple ways to improve your home’s indoor air quality include:


Sources that contain asbestos can sometimes be sealed or enclosed, while others, like gas stoves, can be adjusted to where less emissions are released. Generally speaking, source control is a relatively inexpensive approach to maintaining indoor air quality when compared to increasing ventilation, since doing so can end up increasing your energy bill.


Another way to improve your home’s indoor airquality is to increase the amount of outdoor air coming into your home.

While most homes have indoor ventilation systems, not all of them allow much air from outside into your home. A simple fix is to open doors and windows around the house to allow for cross ventilation. Kitchen and bathroom exhaust fans also help remove indoor contaminants.

It’s especially important to open doors and windows for cross ventilation when you engage in activities that can generate high levels of pollutants, such as painting, paint removal, or engaging in home maintenance. It’s best to do such actvities outdoors if possible, so that harmful fumes and pollutants won’t be trapped in your home.

These days, home’s are being built to increase air flow from outside and have better cross ventilation from outside, which ends up improving a home’s indoor air quality! Give Quality 1 Energy Systems a call for more helpful information.
