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 make your home’s air quality two to five times worse than outdoor air.

With a whole-home ventilation system from Sunbeam Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can pull stuffy, dirty air from your home. Then, the system replaces the musty air with clean air from outdoors. Some equipment 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 lousy or worsen ongoing conditions 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 everyday household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can cause respiratory irritation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest typical indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
  3. 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 kill you.

How Whole-Home Ventilation Works

House ventilation systems can remove pollution from the air in your rooms.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and expel stale air.

Plus, some equipment from Sunbeam Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
