Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Ravenna
Today’s 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 collect. The EPA says this can cause your home’s air quality to be two to five times worse than outdoor air.
With a whole-home ventilation system from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can take out stuffy, dirty air from your home. Then, the system swaps the musty air with fresh air from outdoors. Some models can help your home retain heat and moisture in the winter and get rid of more of it in the summer.
Get started by requesting a no-cost comfort analysis. Our Experts can recommend the system that’s ideal for your home and climate in Ravenna. Plus, all our work is backed by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*
Why Home Ventilation is Important
Having poor indoor air quality can make you feel lousy or aggravate ongoing issues like allergies or asthma.
There are a couple of pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can lead to respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest typical indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is caused 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 living space.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and push out stuffy air.
Plus, some systems from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning maximize energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
