Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Raleigh
Today’s homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling costs. 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 contaminants can collect. 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 stale, polluted air from your home. Then, the system trades the stuffy air with clean air from outdoors. Some models can help your home retain 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 aggravate persistent conditions like allergies or asthma.
There are several pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in everyday household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can result in respiratory irritation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest typical indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate 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 living space.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and expel stuffy air.
Plus, some models from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning maximize energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
