Types of Indoor Pollutants
Indoor air pollutants come in many different shapes and sizes. For instance, dust is present in just about every home and can be a significant irritant to many people. Other allergens like pet dander and pollen can also find their way into your home easily enough. And that’s not all.
Carbon monoxide and other gasses are another serious type of indoor air pollution that you should be aware of. These can find their way into your indoor air supply in a variety of ways, and you may be completely unaware of their presence. And, of course, many types of viruses, molds and bacteria are also expert at infiltrating your home.
Causes of Indoor Air Quality Problems
Any of these pollutants can find their way into your house in a variety of ways. Toxic gasses can be emitted from improperly calibrated space heaters, stoves and furnaces, or they can leak out from faulty duct work. And of course, pets provide plenty of dander all on their own.
Even without these types of pollution sources, however, your indoor air may not be nearly as clean as you think. Improper ventilation is often the cause when this happens, because there is not a significant enough exchange between outdoor and indoor air, leaving pollutants inside to continue circulating over and over again.
The Right Solution for You
Of course, you want your house to be sealed up tight, particularly when you have a central heating and cooling system in place. After all, you don’t want to be paying to heat or cool the whole neighborhood. And that means that you’ll need to have some other systems in place to take care of keeping your indoor air clean.
There are actually quite a few different types of Indoor Air Quality Systems and Air Purifiers. When you’re choosing between your various options, you’ll have to keep in mind the types of pollutants you’re most concerned with eliminating.

Types of Air Cleaning Systems
There are actually quite a few different types of indoor air quality systems - Humidifiers, Dehumidifiers, Germicidal Lights, Air Purifiers and more. Certain Indoor Air Quality Systems are better than others at removing different types of indoor air pollution. For instance, Dehumidifiers remove mositure from indoor air and minimize the potential for mold and other pollutants, Humidifiers reduce dry skin in heated places while saving you money and some air purifiers help filter out pollen and other allergen particles.
And then there are the living contaminants like mold, viruses and bacteria. These are often so small that they can evade the common filters in most air purifiers. Germicidal Lights help reduce the concentrations of microorganisms such as mildew, bacterias and mold, helping to keep your family safe and healthy.
