Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Grand Island

Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy costs. But that efficiency also seals your home, 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 McElroy Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can pull stuffy, dirty air from your home. Then, the system trades the stale air with fresh 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 sick or worsen chronic problems 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 cause respiratory irritation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest frequent indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
  3. Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made by incomplete 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 get rid of 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 equipment from McElroy Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning enhance energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
