Types of Indoor Pollutants

Indoor air pollutants come in many different shapes and sizes. For instance, dust is present in just about every home and can be a significant irritant to many people. Other allergens like pet dander and pollen can also find their way into your home easily enough. And that’s not all.

Carbon monoxide and other gasses are another serious type of indoor air pollution that you should be aware of. These can find their way into your indoor air supply in a variety of ways, and you may be completely unaware of their presence. And, of course, many types of viruses, molds and bacteria are also expert at infiltrating your home.

Causes of Indoor Air Quality Problems

Any of these pollutants can find their way into your house in a variety of ways. Toxic gasses can be emitted from improperly calibrated space heaters, stoves and furnaces, or they can leak out from faulty duct work. And of course, pets provide plenty of dander all on their own.

Even without these types of pollution sources, however, your indoor air may not be nearly as clean as you think. Improper ventilation is often the cause when this happens, because there is not a significant enough exchange between outdoor and indoor air, leaving pollutants inside to continue circulating over and over again.

The Right Solution for You

Of course, you want your house to be sealed up tight, particularly when you have a central Heating and cooling system in place. After all, you don’t want to be paying to heat or cool the whole neighborhood. And that means that you’ll need to have some other systems in place to take care of keeping your indoor air clean.

There are actually quite a few different types of air cleaning and purifying systems. When you’re choosing between your various options, you’ll have to keep in mind the types of pollutants you’re most concerned with eliminating.

This can be a challenging process, and it’s helpful to have some expert advice along the way. If you’re looking for an indoor air cleaning system, we have the products you’re looking for and the expertise you need to ensure that you wind up with just the right system for you and your family. Our technicians can help you determine what your main pollutant problems are, where they’re coming from, and what types of systems will be able to eliminate them for you.

Types of Air Cleaning Systems

Certain air cleaning systems are better than others at removing different types of indoor air pollution. For instance, many air purifiers can filter out pollen and other allergen particles more efficiently than others. However, they may not be as good at removing odors, gasses and smoke.

And then there are the living contaminants like mold, viruses and bacteria. These are often so small that they can evade the common filters in most air purifiers. However, installing some UV germicidal lights can get rid of those types of contaminants easily, helping to keep your family safe and healthy all year long.
