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

Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling costs. But that efficiency also makes your home more airtight, which is bad news for indoor air quality.

We spend most of our lives indoors—up to 90 percent, according to an EPA study. And having an airtight home means contaminants can build up. 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 Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can take out stale, dirty air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stale air with fresh air from outdoors. Some models 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 aggravate persistent issues like allergies or asthma.

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

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can result in respiratory irritation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest frequent indoor pollution sources. They can worsen allergies and asthma.
  3. Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is caused by insufficient 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 get rid of pollution from the air in your home.

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

Plus, some models from Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
