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

Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility bills. 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 accumulate. 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 expel stale, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system trades the stale air with fresh air from outdoors. Some equipment 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 lousy or worsen persistent problems like allergies or asthma.

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

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can result in respiratory inflammation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest common indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
  3. Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is created by incomplete combustion in a natural gas appliance. CO poisoning causes flu-like symptoms and can be deadly.

How Whole-Home Ventilation Works

House ventilation systems can eliminate pollution from the air in your living space.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and expel stale air.

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