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 costs. 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 pollutants 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 expel stale, dirty air from your home. Then, the system replaces the stale air with clean air from outdoors. Some equipment 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 lousy or irritate persistent problems 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 items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can lead to respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest typical indoor pollution sources. They can worsen allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made 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 home.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and get rid of musty air.
Plus, some models from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning make the most of energy efficiency. This gives fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
