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

Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility bills. But that efficiency also makes your home more airtight, 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 pollutants 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 Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can pull musty, polluted air from your home. Then, the system replaces the stuffy air with clean air from outdoors. Some equipment 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 worsen persistent issues like allergies or asthma.

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

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can cause respiratory irritation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest common indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
  3. Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is caused by insufficient 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 home.

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

Plus, some equipment from Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning make the most of energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy use.

Heat Recovery Ventilation

  • Shifts heat to condition incoming air
  • Best for cold locations

Energy Recovery Ventilation

  • Transfers moisture and heat to condition incoming air
  • Retains more humidity in the winter and limits the level introduced in the summer
  • Recommended for warm climates

If you live in the Midwest, your home can benefit from installing both kinds of systems.
