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

Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility costs. But that efficiency also means less airflow, which is bad news for indoor air quality.

We spend most of our lives indoors—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 Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can take out stale, polluted air from your home. Then, the system replaces the musty air with fresh air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home hold on to 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.

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can result in respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest common indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
  3. Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made by incomplete combustion in a natural gas appliance. CO poisoning causes flu-like symptoms and can be fatal.

How Whole-Home Ventilation Works

House ventilation systems can remove pollution from the air in your home.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring fresh air into the house—and push out musty air.

Plus, some systems from Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning maximize energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
