Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Roanoke
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility bills. But that efficiency also seals your home, which is bad news for indoor air quality.
We spend most of our lives in a building—up to 90 percent, according to an EPA study. And having an airtight home means pollutants can build up. 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 expel stuffy, polluted air from your home. Then, the system replaces the stale air with crisp air from outdoors. Some equipment can help your home hold on to 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 lousy or irritate chronic problems like allergies or asthma.
There are a couple of pollution sources that impact the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can result in respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest typical indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is caused by incomplete 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 rooms.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring fresh air into the house—and expel musty air.
Plus, some systems from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning enhance energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
