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

Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility expenses. But that efficiency also means less airflow, 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 pollutants 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 take out stale, polluted air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stale air with fresh air from outdoors. Some equipment 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 feel lousy or worsen persistent 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 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 biggest typical indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
  3. Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made by inadequate 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 push out stale air.

Plus, some systems from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning maximize energy efficiency. This gives fresh airflow without excessive energy use.

Heat Recovery Ventilation

  • Best for cold areas

Energy Recovery Ventilation

  • Shifts moisture and heat to condition incoming air
  • Holds on to more humidity in the winter and reduces the level brought in during the summer
  • Best for warm locations

If you live in the Midwest, your home can benefit from adding both kinds of equipment.
