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 expenses. But that efficiency also seals your home, 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 accumulate. 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, you can expel stuffy, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stale air with crisp air from outdoors. Some systems 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 bad or worsen ongoing 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. High concentration can cause respiratory inflammation 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 get rid of pollution from the air in your rooms.

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

Plus, some systems from Comfort Masters Service Experts maximize energy efficiency. This gives fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
