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 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 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 expel stale, polluted air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stuffy air with clean 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 irritate ongoing issues like allergies or asthma.
There are a couple of pollution sources that affect the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in everyday household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can cause respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest common indoor pollution sources. They can worsen allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is caused 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 get rid of pollution from the air in your home.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring fresh air into the house—and push out musty air.
Plus, some equipment from Freschi Service Experts maximize energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
