Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Indianapolis
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy bills. 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 chemicals 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 Broad Ripple Service Experts, you can expel musty, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stale air with fresh air from outdoors. Some models can help your home hold on to 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 feel lousy or aggravate ongoing problems 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 things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can cause respiratory irritation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest common indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made 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 eliminate pollution from the air in your rooms.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and get rid of stuffy air.
Plus, some models from Broad Ripple Service Experts maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
