Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Fort Wayne

Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy expenses. 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 collect. 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 Rolf Griffin Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can pull stale, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stuffy air with fresh air from outdoors. Some models can help your home retain 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 sick or irritate persistent issues 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 common household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can lead to respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most typical indoor pollution sources. They can worsen allergies and asthma.
  3. Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is created by inadequate combustion in a natural gas appliance. CO poisoning causes flu-like symptoms and can kill you.

How Whole-Home Ventilation Works

House ventilation systems can get rid of pollution from the air in your home.

Plus, some systems from Rolf Griffin Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning make the most of energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
