Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Savannah
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling costs. But that efficiency also seals your home, 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 accumulate. 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 take out stuffy, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system trades the stuffy air with crisp 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 chronic problems like allergies or asthma.
There are a couple of pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.
- 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.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest common indoor pollution sources. They can worsen allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is created by insufficient 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 rooms.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring fresh air into the house—and expel stuffy air.
Plus, some equipment from Coastal Service Experts enhance energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
