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

Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility 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 accumulate. 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 Heating & Air Conditioning, you can take out musty, polluted air from your home. Then, the system swaps the musty 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 bad or aggravate chronic problems like allergies or asthma.

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

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can cause respiratory irritation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest common indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
  3. 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 fatal.

How Whole-Home Ventilation Works

House ventilation systems can eliminate pollution from the air in your home.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and expel stuffy air.

Plus, some systems from Broad Ripple Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
