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

Today’s homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling expenses. 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 contaminants can collect. 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 Freschi Service Experts, you can take out stale, polluted air from your home. Then, the system trades the stuffy air with crisp air from outdoors. Some models 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 irritate ongoing problems like allergies or asthma.

There are a couple of pollution sources that impact the air your family breathes.

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can cause respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest common indoor pollution sources. They can worsen allergies and asthma.
  3. Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is caused by insufficient 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 get rid of pollution from the air in your rooms.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and push out stuffy air.

Plus, some equipment from Freschi Service Experts maximize energy efficiency. This gives fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
