Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Cleveland
Today’s homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling expenses. But that efficiency also seals your home, 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 chemicals can accumulate. The EPA says this can make your home’s air quality two to five times worse than outdoor air.
With a whole-home ventilation system from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can pull stuffy, dirty air from your home. Then, the system replaces the musty air with clean air from outdoors. Some equipment can help your home hold on to heat and moisture in the winter and get rid of more of it in the summer.

Why Home Ventilation is Important
Having poor indoor air quality can make you sick or irritate chronic issues like allergies or asthma.
There are a few pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can lead to respiratory irritation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest frequent indoor pollution sources. They can worsen allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made by insufficient combustion in a natural gas appliance. CO poisoning causes flu-like symptoms and can kill you.
How Whole-Home Ventilation Works
House ventilation systems can get rid of pollution from the air in your home.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and push out stale air.
Plus, some systems from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning make the most of energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
