How Indoor Air Quality Became a Concern

About 40 years ago, the primary need of the hour was energy saving. Homes were being built to keep the cool and warm hair inside and insulation was the order of the day. Unfortunately this resulted in the germs remaining indoors as well. Our homes were so well insulated that moisture was retained within resulting in the growth of mold, bacteria and other viruses. As people began falling sick, the issue started gaining importance and by the 90's it was a national concern. As central air conditioning got popular and homes continued to be energy efficient, the problem persisted and over longer periods of time, this affected family health.
