Causes of Poor Indoor Air Quality
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), pollution levels inside a building can be up to five times higher than the pollution levels outdoors. Common causes of poor IAQ include:
- The build-up of dust and other contaminants in air vents and filters.
- High moisture levels due to pipe leaks and damp soil beneath the house.
- Poor ventilation.
- Insufficient temperature regulation.
- Chemical pollutants, such as radon, pesticides, and smoke particles.
- Biological pollutants, including mold, pollen, pet dander, and pest droppings.
One issue often leads to another. For example, poor ventilation can result in high humidity levels, which cause mold growth. When providing air quality services, we'll identify all the indoor pollution sources to determine the correct solution.
The Effects of Indoor Air Pollution
Poor IAQ can result in immediate and long-term adverse health effects. Immediate health effects are similar to those of viral conditions and include:
- Irritation of the eyes, throat, and nose
- Chronic fatigue
Prolonged exposure to indoor air pollutants can result in various health concerns, including:
- Chronic respiratory conditions, such as asthma
- Cardiovascular disease
Maintaining your air quality will make a significant difference to your quality of life. Our IAQ solutions can help to reduce irritations and allergies and increase energy levels.

Our Indoor Air Quality Solutions
In many cases, it is possible to improve your home’s IAQ yourself. You can stop smoking indoors, remove obstructions from air vents, and adjust your furnace to reduce its emission levels.
However, taking these steps is not sufficient to improve IAQ if something is amiss with your building envelope. The services we offer to maintain the quality of your indoor air include:
- Media, electronic, or HEPA air cleaner installation
- Duct cleaning and HVAC filter replacement
If an aging AC, air handler or furnace is the source of indoor pollution, as a RUUD Pro Partner, we can provide you with a complete replacement.
