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

Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling costs. But that efficiency also makes your home more airtight, which is bad news for indoor air quality.

We spend most of our lives in a building—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 Comfort Masters Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can take out stale, polluted air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stale air with clean air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home hold on to 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 aggravate chronic conditions like allergies or asthma.

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

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can cause respiratory inflammation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most typical indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
  3. Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is created 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 eliminate pollution from the air in your rooms.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and expel stale air.

Plus, some models from Comfort Masters Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning maximize energy efficiency. This gives fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
