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

Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility costs. 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 build up. 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 Peitz Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can pull musty, dirty air from your home. Then, the system trades the stuffy air with clean air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home hold on to heat and moisture in the winter and discharge more of it in the summer.

Why Home Ventilation is Important

Having poor indoor air quality can make you sick or aggravate ongoing issues like allergies or asthma.

There are several pollution sources that impact the air your family breathes.

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in everyday household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can lead to respiratory irritation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest typical indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate 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 deadly.

How Whole-Home Ventilation Works

House ventilation systems can eliminate pollution from the air in your living space.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and get rid of stuffy air.

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