Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Medina
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 in a building—up to 90 percent, according to an EPA study. And having an airtight home means contaminants can collect. The EPA says this can make your home’s air quality two to five times worse than outdoor air.
With a whole-home ventilation system from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can pull musty, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stale air with crisp 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 aggravate ongoing problems like allergies or asthma.
There are a couple of pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in everyday household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can lead to respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most common indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
- 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 eliminate pollution from the air in your rooms.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and push out stale air.
Plus, some models from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning enhance energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
