When you think of air pollution, you probably have a picture of smokestacks billowing black clouds into the sky. But did you know that the worst quality air might not be outdoors, but inside the walls of your home? It’s true—according to the EPA, indoor air quality can often be three to four times poorer than outdoor air quality.
The reason your home may have such poor air quality is because of tight insulation. This is great to keep heat from escaping in cold weather or coming in during hot weather. But it’s not great for circulating fresh air through the home to sweep away contaminants from many different indoor sources. Paint, building materials, hobby products, cosmetics, attached garages, pesticides, and more send pollutants into the air you and your family breathe, and they often have nowhere to escape. They just continue to circulate through the HVAC system.
