how to improve indoor air quality

Whether you live in an old or new home, there are ways indoor air quality can be improved. According to the EPA, indoor air quality “refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants.” OSHA says poor indoor air quality can result in headaches, fatigue, trouble concentrating, and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and lungs.

The EPA lists three ways to improve indoor air quality. They are:

1. Source Control

Source control involves limiting the source of indoor air pollutants. This could be a number of causes. The Consumer Product Safety Commission lists examples of these as “oil, gas, kerosene, coal, wood, and tobacco products; building materials and furnishings as diverse as deteriorated, asbestos-containing insulation.”

2. Ventilation Improvements

This method can be used to limit outdoor air from breaching the home if it is contaminated or allowing outside air to enter the home if it is clean. Another way to improve ventilation is by clearing out the HVAC system in the home. For a guide on how to do this, click here.

There are many devices on the market that can be used to improve indoor air quality. These devices should eliminate pollutants in the air.
