Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Miami
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling costs. But that efficiency also makes your home more airtight, which is bad news for indoor air quality.
We spend most of our lives indoors—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 Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can take out musty, contaminated 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 get rid of more of it in the summer.

Why Home Ventilation is Important
Having poor indoor air quality can make you feel bad or irritate persistent issues like allergies or asthma.
There are a couple of pollution sources that impact the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can result in respiratory irritation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest typical indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is caused by incomplete combustion in a natural gas appliance. CO poisoning causes flu-like symptoms and can be fatal.
How Whole-Home Ventilation Works
House ventilation systems can remove 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 Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning make the most of energy efficiency. This gives fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
