How Clean is the Air Inside Your Home?

September 2016 Newsletter

How clean is the air inside your home?



Idaho is known for its beautiful landscapes and crisp, clean air. The Department of Air Quality monitors our air based on color; Green is very good, purple…very unhealthy. During fire season you only need to step outside to feel the effects of those moderate and unhealthy days. Air quality has such an effect on overall heath that during orange and red quality day, schools will limit outdoor time for the kiddos, just to make sure their lungs aren’t working overtime.







But did you know…the air in your house can be worse than outside? Indoor air quality is affected by many different sources:

  • Tobacco products
  • Deteriorated asbestos-containing insulation
  • Newly installed flooring, upholstery or carpet
  • Cabinetry or furniture made of certain pressed wood products
  • Products for household cleaning and maintenance, personal care, or hobbies
  • Central heating and cooling systems and humidification devices
  • Excess moisture
  • Pesticides
  • Fuel-burning combustion appliances such as gas stoves, grills, water heaters, even gas dryers.






The impact a single source has is relative to how much of agiven pollutant is emitted and how hazardous those emissions are. Age andproper maintenance can have a significant impact. If you are in the middle of aremodel project, you’ll have a much greater amount of pollutant in the airversus your day to day emissions once the dust has settled (literally!)Maintenance plays a role as well. For example, an improperly adjusted gas stovecan emit significantly more carbon monoxide than one that is properly adjusted.


Human activities can be significant sources of indoor airpollution. Those family members that are sensitive to animal dander or moresusceptible to illness will find themselves reacting to air pollutants morequickly than those with higher tolerances. Millions of people are affected eachyear, thousands of cases resulting in missed time from work or school. Luckily,there is an air quality solution for every need!!
