Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Dayton
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy 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 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 Stevenson Service Experts, you can take out stale, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system replaces the musty air with fresh 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 lousy or worsen persistent issues 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 products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can result in respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest common indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is created by incomplete 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 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 maximize energy efficiency. This gives fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
