What is it?
Indoor air quality is defined by the health and comfort of the occupants. If the people in the building have fresh air circulating through out the building and it is between 68-72 degrees with approximately 35-55% relative humidity, most people would be quite comfortable, but when a shift in either the temperature, humidity, amount of carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2) within the building occurs that is when the comfort level and the health of the air can change.
If you have strange odors from new flooring, paneling, wallcovering, painting, and decorating, ie: new furniture, then you might have VOCs escaping into your indoor air.
