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 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 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 swaps the stuffy air with crisp air from outdoors. Some models can help your home retain heat and moisture in the winter and expel more of it in the summer.

Why Home Ventilation is Important

Having poor indoor air quality can make you sick or worsen persistent conditions like allergies or asthma.

There are several pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in everyday household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can result in respiratory irritation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest frequent indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate 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 eliminate pollution from the air in your living space.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and expel musty air.

Plus, some models from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning maximize energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
