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

Current 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 inside—up to 90 percent, according to an EPA study. And having an airtight home means pollutants 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 Coastal Service Experts, you can expel stale, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system trades the stuffy air with clean air from outdoors. Some models can help your home retain heat and moisture in the winter and discharge more of it in the summer.

Why Home Ventilation is Important

Having poor indoor air quality can make you sick or worsen ongoing issues like allergies or asthma.

There are a few pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can result in respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest common indoor pollution sources. They can worsen 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 deadly.

How Whole-Home Ventilation Works

House ventilation systems can get rid of pollution from the air in your home.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring fresh air into the house—and get rid of stuffy air.

Plus, some equipment from Coastal Service Experts make the most of energy efficiency. This gives fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.

Heat Recovery Ventilation

  • Transfers heat to condition incoming air
  • Recommended for cold locations

Energy Recovery Ventilation

  • Shifts moisture and heat to condition incoming air
  • Retains more humidity in the winter and decreases the level imported during the summer
  • Best for humid areas

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