How Does Outdoor Pollution Affect Indoor Air Pollution?


Air pollution can cause health issues for anyone. Even those who are young or do not experience allergic reactions can be negatively impacted by both indoor and outdoor pollution. To stay healthy indoors, understanding outdoor pollution is still important.

What Is Indoor Pollution?

Indoor pollution refers to the air quality inside a building. Examples of indoor pollution include pet dander, mold and asbestos. While these are typically found within the actual home or building, outdoor pollution can play a part.

Outdoor pollution can occur from a number of different sources. Chimney smoke, contaminated soil and certain forms of dust can cause the air to become contaminated. Once air pollution has occurred, this can have side effects ranging from mild to severe depending on the person.

How Can Outdoor Pollution Impact Indoor Air Quality?

Outdoor air pollution can enter a home or building in multiple ways. One of the most common ways outdoor pollution such as smog or smoke can enter indoors is through an open window. Doors that are left open or windows that are not completely closed can allow air to come directly inside. 

HVAC systems can make a big difference when controlling air quality. Not only can air conditioning control the temperature of an indoor space, but it can improve the breathing quality of air. If HVAC systems are not properly functioning, they can allow for the accumulation of air pollution to build. Routine maintenance is advised for any system.

FAQ

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.  

  • Most common Boiler Issues

    - Boiler fails to ignite
    - Low pressure
    - Strange Noises
    - Boiler is not responding to the thermostat
    - Cold Radiators
    - Boiler leaking or dripping
    - Boiler cycling very fast
    - Available Hot water but No Heat

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.
