Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Richmond

Today’s 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 contaminants can accumulate. 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 Eveready Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can expel stale, polluted air from your home. Then, the system trades the stuffy air with clean air from outdoors. Some equipment 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 sick or worsen chronic conditions like allergies or asthma.

There are a couple of pollution sources that affect 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 cause respiratory inflammation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest common indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
  3. 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 home.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and expel stale air.

Plus, some models from Eveready Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning make the most of energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
