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

Today’s homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility expenses. But that efficiency also seals your home, 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 chemicals can collect. 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 Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can take out stuffy, dirty air from your home. Then, the system replaces the musty air with crisp air from outdoors. Some models 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 persistent issues like allergies or asthma.

There are a couple of pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can lead to respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest frequent indoor pollution sources. They can worsen allergies and asthma.
  3. Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is created by insufficient 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 rooms.

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

Plus, some systems from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning make the most of energy efficiency. This gives fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
