Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in North America
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling bills. But that efficiency also means less airflow, which is bad news for indoor air quality.
We spend most of our lives indoors—up to 90 percent, according to an EPA study. And having an airtight home means contaminants can accumulate. The EPA says this can lead to your home’s air quality being two to five times worse than outdoor air.
With a whole-home ventilation system from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can pull stuffy, polluted air from your home. Then, the system trades the musty air with crisp air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home keep heat and moisture in the winter and expel more of it in the summer.

Why Home Ventilation is Important
Having poor indoor air quality can make you sick or irritate persistent conditions like allergies or asthma.
There are several pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can lead to respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest typical indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is created by inadequate combustion in a natural gas appliance. CO poisoning causes flu-like symptoms and can be fatal.
How Whole-Home Ventilation Works
House ventilation systems can eliminate pollution from the air in your home.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring fresh air into the house—and get rid of stuffy air.
Plus, some equipment from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning enhance energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
