Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Fort Myers

Today’s homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling costs. But that efficiency also means less airflow, 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 make your home’s air quality two to five times worse than outdoor air.

With a whole-home ventilation system from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can pull stuffy, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system trades the stuffy air with crisp air from outdoors. Some models can help your home hold on to 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 feel bad or irritate ongoing 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 products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can cause respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest common 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 be fatal.

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 introduce fresh air into the house—and push out stuffy air.

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