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 chemicals 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 Climate Control Service Experts, you can pull musty, polluted air from your home. Then, the system replaces the stuffy air with clean air from outdoors. Some models 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 lousy or aggravate persistent problems like allergies or asthma.
There are a few pollution sources that impact the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can lead to respiratory irritation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest common indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is caused 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 stuffy air.
Plus, some equipment from Climate Control Service Experts enhance energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
