Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Buffalo
Today’s homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling costs. But that efficiency also means less airflow, 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 cause your home’s air quality to be two to five times worse than outdoor air.
With a whole-home ventilation system from Sunbeam Service Experts, you can pull stuffy, dirty air from your home. Then, the system replaces the musty air with clean air from outdoors. Some models can help your home hold on to heat and moisture in the winter and get rid of more of it in the summer.

Why Home Ventilation is Important
Having poor indoor air quality can make you feel bad or aggravate chronic conditions 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 regular household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can cause respiratory irritation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest frequent indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate 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 kill you.
How Whole-Home Ventilation Works
House ventilation systems can remove pollution from the air in your home.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring fresh air into the house—and expel stale air.
Plus, some equipment from Sunbeam Service Experts maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
