Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in West Chester
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 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 cause your home’s air quality to be two to five times worse than outdoor air.
With a whole-home ventilation system from Wesley Wood Service Experts, you can expel stuffy, polluted air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stale air with clean air from outdoors. Some equipment can help your home retain 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 bad or worsen persistent conditions like allergies or asthma.
There are a couple of pollution sources that impact the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can result in respiratory inflammation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most frequent indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is caused by inadequate 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 remove pollution from the air in your rooms.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and push out stale air.
Plus, some models from Wesley Wood Service Experts make the most of energy efficiency. This gives fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
