Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Shreveport
Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy costs. 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 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, polluted air from your home. Then, the system trades the musty air with fresh air from outdoors. Some equipment can help your home hold on to 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 bad or worsen persistent conditions like allergies or asthma.
There are several pollution sources that impact the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can cause respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest frequent indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is created by inadequate combustion in a natural gas appliance. CO poisoning causes flu-like symptoms and can be deadly.
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.

Energy Recovery Ventilation
