Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Fort Wayne
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility expenses. But that efficiency also makes your home more airtight, 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 pollutants 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 , you can pull stale, polluted air from your home. Then, the system trades the stuffy air with fresh air from outdoors. Some equipment 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 couple of pollution sources that affect 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 lead to respiratory inflammation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most frequent indoor pollution sources. They can worsen allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is created by insufficient 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 eliminate pollution from the air in your rooms.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and expel stuffy air.
Plus, some systems from Rolf Griffin Service Experts make the most of energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
