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

Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility costs. 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 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 musty, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stuffy air with clean air from outdoors. Some equipment can help your home keep 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 issues like allergies or asthma.

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

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can result in respiratory irritation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest typical indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
  3. 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 home.

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 enhance energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.

Heat Recovery Ventilation

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

Energy Recovery Ventilation

  • Transfers moisture and heat to condition incoming air
  • Holds on to more humidity in the winter and limits the amount imported during the summer
  • Best for warm climates

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