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 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 chemicals can collect. The EPA says this can make your home’s air quality two to five times worse than outdoor air.
With a whole-home ventilation system from Pardee Service Experts, you can take out stuffy, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system swaps the musty air with crisp air from outdoors. Some models 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 ongoing issues 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 everyday household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can cause respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest frequent indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made by incomplete 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 get rid of pollution from the air in your rooms.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and push out stuffy air.
Plus, some equipment from Pardee Service Experts make the most of energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
