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 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 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 Heating & Air Conditioning, you can take out stuffy, polluted air from your home. Then, the system trades the stale air with crisp 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 lousy or worsen persistent conditions like allergies or asthma.

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

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

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring fresh air into the house—and push out stale air.

Plus, some models from Wesley Wood Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning enhance energy efficiency. This gives fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
