Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Canada
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility 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 pollutants can accumulate. 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 Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can pull stale, polluted air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stale air with fresh air from outdoors. Some equipment can help your home retain 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 aggravate chronic problems like allergies or asthma.
There are a few pollution sources that impact the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can result in respiratory irritation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most common indoor pollution sources. They can worsen 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 be fatal.
How Whole-Home Ventilation Works
House ventilation systems can get rid of pollution from the air in your living space.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring fresh air into the house—and expel stale air.
Plus, some systems from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning enhance energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
