Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Denver
Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling costs. 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 build up. 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 Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can expel stuffy, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system replaces the stale air with fresh air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home keep 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 aggravate ongoing conditions like allergies or asthma.
There are several 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. Increased concentration can result in respiratory inflammation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most common indoor pollution sources. They can worsen allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made 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 equipment from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
