Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Houston
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility expenses. But that efficiency also means less airflow, 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 cause your home’s air quality to be two to five times worse than outdoor air.
With a whole-home ventilation system from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can take out musty, dirty air from your home. Then, the system trades the stuffy air with clean air from outdoors. Some equipment can help your home keep heat and moisture in the winter and get rid of more of it in the summer.

Why Home Ventilation is Important
Having poor indoor air quality can make you feel lousy or aggravate persistent issues like allergies or asthma.
There are several pollution sources that impact the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can cause respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest typical indoor pollution sources. They can worsen 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 living space.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and expel stale air.
Plus, some models from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning make the most of energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
