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

Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling 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 build up. The EPA says this can lead to your home’s air quality being two to five times worse than outdoor air.

With a whole-home ventilation system from Teays Valley Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can take out stuffy, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system replaces the stale air with fresh air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home hold on to heat and moisture in the winter and discharge more of it in the summer.

Why Home Ventilation is Important

Having poor indoor air quality can make you sick or aggravate chronic problems like allergies or asthma.

There are several pollution sources that affect the air your family breathes.

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can cause respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most frequent indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
  3. Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made by inadequate combustion in a natural gas appliance. CO poisoning causes flu-like symptoms and can kill you.

How Whole-Home Ventilation Works

House ventilation systems can remove pollution from the air in your rooms.

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

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

  • Ideal for hot locations

If you live in the Midwest, your home can benefit from adding both kinds of equipment.
