Outdoor air pollution can come from a variety of sources. Whether you’re living in the middle of a busy city or on a farm, particles and volatile organic compounds can enter your home and cause a variety of issues. Particles and vapors can cause respiratory issues, increased asthma symptoms, and even heart and lung disease after long periods of exposures. Outside air is always going to end up in your home, so it’s important to clean it once it enters.

Airflow in a Home

Many modern homes have fairly minimal airflow from the outside. This is because of increases in the energy efficiency of a home. Many air leaks that used to let polluted air in are now sealed in new houses. While this helps keep polluted air out, it can still enter through doorways and windows when they’re opened and closed. Dirty outdoor air can make it a lot harder to maintain clean indoor air quality.

That can be wasteful, for instance, if everyone is in the TV room. A space heater in that room can keep everyone comfortable while letting you drop the main temperature as much as 10 degrees, which is a huge difference.
