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 inside—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 stale, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system trades the stuffy air with crisp air from outdoors. Some equipment can help your home keep 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 chronic problems like allergies or asthma.
There are a couple of pollution sources that affect the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can lead to respiratory inflammation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest common indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
- 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 eliminate pollution from the air in your home.
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 enhance energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
