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

Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility bills. But that efficiency also makes your home more airtight, 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 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 take out stuffy, polluted 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 discharge more of it in the summer.

Why Home Ventilation is Important

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

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

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can result in respiratory inflammation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest typical indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
  3. 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 home.

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

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