Primary Causes of Indoor Air Problems
There are lots of sources that can cause indoor air problems, but the primary sources of indoor pollution are sources that release gases or particles into the air inside your home.
Indoor Air Pollution sources can include:
- Appliances that use Fuel
- Tobacco Products
- Building materials and furnishings
- New Flooring, upholstery or carpet
- Cabinets or Furniture made or certain pressed wood products
- Household cleaning products, health care products, or home maintenance products
- Central heating and cooling systems and humidification devices
- Excessive moisture
- Outdoor sources
- Outdoor air pollution
Not Having Proper Ventilation
If a home doesn’t have proper ventilation, indoor air pollutants can build up and can pose a greater health issue and create problems for you and your family. In the long run, this can also affect the comfort in your home. Homes that are built with proper ventilation or have equipment that can help with ventilation may have lower indoor pollutant levels.
QuietCool Whole House Fans Can Help Indoor Air Quality
Lowering the concentration of indoor air pollutants in your home is to increase the amount of outdoor air coming into your home. Most home heating and cooling systems, including forced air heating systems, do not mechanically bring fresh air into the house. Opening windows, having a few window fans, or running a window air conditioner with the vent control open can increase the outdoor ventilation rate. One of the most effective ways to reduce pollutants inside a home is by exchanging the air inside your home by replacing it with outdoor air. QuietCool has created an advanced whole house fan that can easily bring fresh outdoor air through your home and exhaust the built up stale air. These systems are designed not only to help owners live comfortably, but also save money on electrical bills.

- Open a few windows throughout the home 3-5 inches of opening
