Indoor Air Quality

January 18, 2022 2 min read

Indoor Air Quality (#IAQ) has become more significant in recent times because of Work From Home & Learn From Home arrangements. As per a research, Americans spend roughly 90% of their time indoors, where the concentrations of some pollutants are 2 to 5 times higher than typical outdoor concentrations. Poor indoor air quality is a common cause of severe allergies and many short-term and long-term health problems like:

  • Irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat.
  • Headaches, dizziness, and fatigue.
  • Respiratory diseases, heart disease, and cancer.

Indoor pollutant concentrations have risen in recent decades as a result of factors such as energy-efficient building construction, inadequate ventilation, increased use of synthetic building materials, furnishings, personal care products, pesticides, and household cleaners. Indoor Pollution Sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems. Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants out of the area.

High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants. Indoor Pollution Sources can be categorized as:

  • Combustion sources in indoor settings, including tobacco, wood and coal heating and cooking appliances, and fireplaces, can release harmful combustion by-products such as carbon monoxide and particulate matter directly into the indoor environment.
  • Cleaning supplies, paints, insecticides, and other commonly used products introduce many different chemicals, including volatile organic compounds, directly into the indoor air.
  • Building materials are also potential sources, whether through degrading materials (e.g., asbestos fibers released from building insulation) or from new materials (e.g., chemical off-gassing from pressed wood products). Other substances in indoor air are of natural origin, such as radon, mold, and pet dander.
  • Outdoor climate and weather conditions, as well as occupant behavior, can all have an impact on indoor air quality. Weather conditions influence whether building occupants keep windows open or closed, as well as whether they use air conditioners, humidifiers, or heaters, all of which can have an impact on indoor air quality. Certain climatic conditions, if not controlled by adequate ventilation or air conditioning, can increase the potential for indoor moisture and mold growth.

Making sure that your building is well-ventilated and getting rid of pollutants can improve the quality of air inside your house.

Air Purifiers can clean indoor air within minutes to let you breathe pure irrespective of indoor or outdoor air pollution.
