Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Columbus

Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility bills. But that efficiency also means less airflow, which is bad news for indoor air quality.

We spend most of our lives inside—up to 90 percent, according to an EPA study. And having an airtight home means contaminants can accumulate. 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, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system replaces the musty air with crisp air from outdoors. Some equipment can help your home keep heat and moisture in the winter and discharge more of it in the summer.

Why Home Ventilation is Important

Having poor indoor air quality can make you feel bad or worsen chronic issues like allergies or asthma.

There are a couple of pollution sources that affect the air your family breathes.

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can result in respiratory inflammation 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 insufficient combustion in a natural gas appliance. CO poisoning causes flu-like symptoms and can be deadly.

How Whole-Home Ventilation Works

House ventilation systems can remove pollution from the air in your living space.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and get rid of stuffy air.

Plus, some systems from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning enhance energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
