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

Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy 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 pollutants 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 Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can take out stuffy, dirty air from your home. Then, the system replaces the stale 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 feel bad or aggravate persistent conditions like allergies or asthma.

There are a couple of pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.

  1. 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 sensitivity and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest frequent 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 be deadly.

How Whole-Home Ventilation Works

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

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

Plus, some models from Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning enhance energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
