Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Gaithersburg
Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility expenses. 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 chemicals 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 Parker Pearce Service Experts, you can expel stuffy, dirty air from your home. Then, the system replaces the musty air with crisp air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home keep 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 feel lousy or worsen persistent conditions like allergies or asthma.
There are a few pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can result in respiratory inflammation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest typical indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made by insufficient 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 eliminate pollution from the air in your home.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and expel musty air.
Plus, some models from Parker Pearce Service Experts enhance energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
