Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Saint Charles

Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility costs. But that efficiency also seals your home, which is bad news for indoor air quality.

We spend most of our lives in a building—up to 90 percent, according to an EPA study. And having an airtight home means chemicals can build up. 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 Golden Seal Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can expel stuffy, polluted air from your home. Then, the system replaces the stale air with clean air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home keep 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 sick or irritate chronic conditions like allergies or asthma.

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

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can cause respiratory irritation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most common 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 deadly.

How Whole-Home Ventilation Works

House ventilation systems can remove pollution from the air in your living space.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring fresh air into the house—and get rid of stale air.

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