Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Livermore
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy expenses. But that efficiency also seals your home, 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 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 Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can expel musty, polluted air from your home. Then, the system trades the stuffy air with crisp air from outdoors. Some equipment can help your home hold on to 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 chronic issues like allergies or asthma.
There are a couple of pollution sources that affect the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in everyday household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can result in respiratory irritation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest frequent indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate 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 get rid of pollution from the air in your rooms.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and expel musty air.
Plus, some equipment from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning make the most of energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
