Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Salt Lake City

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

We spend most of our lives in a building—up to 90 percent, according to an EPA study. And having an airtight home means chemicals 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 Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can expel stuffy, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system swaps the musty air with clean air from outdoors. Some equipment can help your home retain heat and moisture in the winter and discharge more of it in the summer.

Why Home Ventilation is Important

Having poor indoor air quality can make you sick or irritate ongoing conditions like allergies or asthma.

There are several pollution sources that affect the air your family breathes.

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can cause respiratory inflammation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest common indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
  3. Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made 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 remove pollution from the air in your home.

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

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

Heat Recovery Ventilation

  • Moves heat to condition incoming air
  • Recommended for cold locations

Energy Recovery Ventilation

  • Shifts moisture and heat to condition incoming air
  • Keeps more humidity in the winter and decreases the level introduced in the summer
  • Best for humid areas

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