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, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stale air with clean air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home hold on to 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.

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can lead to respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest typical indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
  3. Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made 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 expel stuffy air.

Plus, some equipment from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning make the most of energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy use.

Heat Recovery Ventilation

  • Transfers heat to condition incoming air
  • Best for cold climates

Energy Recovery Ventilation

  • Transfers moisture and heat to condition incoming air
  • Holds on to more humidity in the winter and reduces the amount brought in during the summer
  • Ideal for humid locations

If you live in the Midwest, your home can benefit from adding both kinds of equipment.
