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 makes your home more airtight, 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 pollutants can build up. The EPA says this can cause your home’s air quality to be two to five times worse than outdoor air.

With a whole-home ventilation system from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can pull stale, dirty air from your home. Then, the system replaces the musty air with crisp air from outdoors. Some models can help your home keep 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 couple of pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can cause respiratory irritation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest frequent indoor pollution sources. They can worsen allergies and asthma.
  3. 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 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 models from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning make the most of energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
