Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Memphis
Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy bills. But that efficiency also makes your home more airtight, 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 build up. 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 models can help your home keep 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 feel bad or worsen persistent issues like allergies or asthma.
There are a few pollution sources that impact the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in everyday household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can result in respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest common indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made 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 get rid of stale air.
Plus, some systems from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
