Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Girard
Today’s homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy bills. 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 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 Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can take out musty, dirty air from your home. Then, the system replaces the stuffy air with fresh air from outdoors. Some equipment 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 worsen persistent problems like allergies or asthma.
There are several pollution sources that impact the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can lead to respiratory irritation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest typical indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
- 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 living space.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and push out musty air.
Plus, some equipment from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning enhance energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
