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

Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy bills. 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 chemicals can collect. 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 Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can take out stale, 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 expel more of it in the summer.

Why Home Ventilation is Important

Having poor indoor air quality can make you feel bad or worsen 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 everyday household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can lead to respiratory inflammation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest typical indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
  3. Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is created by incomplete 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 get rid of pollution from the air in your home.

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

Plus, some equipment from Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning enhance energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
