What comes to mind when you think of air pollution? Car exhaust, refineries, smoke, and smog don’t tell the whole story. You may assume your home provides an escape from air pollution, but the Environmental Protection Agency says that indoor air is often two to five times more polluted than the air outside. How can this be? The fact is, everything from your home’s building materials and finishes to your daily activities can raise the levels of indoor air pollution. Since you likely spend 90% or more of your time inside, it’s important to address indoor air quality (IAQ) so you and your family stay healthy.
Air purification and indoor air quality (or IAQ) in Indianapolis, IN and the surrounding areas is a concern for hundreds of thousands of homeowners. One reason for this is that air cannot ventilate freely because of the extensive insulation used to stop cooling and heating loss. For this reason, we recommend the installation of air quality systems that actively exchange indoor/outdoor air, remove contaminants, temper humidity and kill germs like bacteria and viruses.

Sources of Indoor Air Pollution
Most pollutants that affect indoor air quality come from inside the building. Some of the most common concerns include:
- Carbon monoxide, tobacco smoke, and particle matter from combustion products
- Lead and asbestos found in older homes
- Ozone (a byproduct of some air cleaners)
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs), such as benzene and formaldehyde, from cleaning supplies, cosmetics, paint, pressed wood products, and many other sources
- Mold caused by high humidity
- Pet dander from many breeds of dogs and cats
- Pesticides used both inside and outside the home
- Radon from decaying uranium rocks found in the soil beneath your home
Other factors that affect indoor air quality include the climate, season, air exchange rate, and use of chemicals indoors. If you struggle with headaches, irritated eyes, respiratory problems, fatigue, or other symptoms that only seem to appear when you’re at home, these are signs that indoor air pollution levels are high.
