Is the freshness of your home’s air under control?
Today’s homes are being built with energy efficiency in mind. They are sealed tightly, so the air that’s been heated or cooled can’t seep out.
While saving money on energy is good for the pocketbook, a tightly sealed home also means that the same, stale indoor air is being recirculated throughout your home, every time your furnace or air conditioner is running. In addition, moisture is trapped inside, making your home uncomfortable.
Air that’s trapped in your home can also contain harmful, toxic chemicals that could be threatening the health of your family. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the concentration of pollutants can be up to 10 times greater inside your home than outside.
Common household contaminants found in even the best-kept homes include:
- Mold, mildew and biological contaminants
- Household chemicals
Fresh Air Is Within Your Reach.
Trapped moisture, chemical fumes, and odor-laden indoor air can have a negative effect on the health and comfort of your family. Thankfully, a whole-home ventilation system can help. Installed as part of your home’s heating and cooling system, it expels stale, stagnant air and replaces it with fresh, clean air
A whole-home ventilation system can help you:
Protect Your Home
Excess humidity is a breeding ground for mold and mildew. It causes condensation build up on windows, destroying their finishes and structural integrity. A whole-home ventilation system works in conjunction with other indoor air quality solutions to minimize damage caused by moisture.
The American College of Allergists states that 50% of illnesses are caused or aggravated by poor indoor air quality. That includes colds, flu, allergies, and asthma. Whole-home ventilation puts dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, viruses, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other airborne pollutants where they belong— outside your home.
A whole-home ventilation system can help you control the way your home feels—and the way it smells. It helps you exchange odors caused by pets, cooking and everyday activities with fresh, clean-smelling outdoor air.
With whole-home ventilation, air that’s too hot or too cold never enters the home, which keeps your air conditioner or furnace from operating unnecessarily.
