    Which one is correct?

    - the air inside your home
    or
    -the air in your home
    or
    are both OK to use

    Both are OK to use. I prefer the first but both are correct.

      Thank you for answering, Jackie. I prefer the first one too but then I was wondering whether both were OK to use.

    I would use the first one.  I believe either usage is okay.

    Both are grammatically correct. I actually prefer the second, though smile

    I personally prefer the second version which is the more natural, abbreviated form for most English speakers to say, though perhaps as we are talking about an enclosed space which is containing the air within it, 'the air inside your home' is more precise?

    EG: People may say 'The air inside your home is fresh.'  But they would never say 'the air inside this neighbourhood is fresh'
