Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Sharonville
Today’s 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 indoors—up to 90 percent, according to an EPA study. And having an airtight home means contaminants can build up. 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 Knochelmann Service Experts, you can expel stale, dirty air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stale air with clean air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home keep 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 lousy or worsen chronic issues like allergies or asthma.
There are a couple of pollution sources that affect the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in everyday household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can cause respiratory inflammation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest typical indoor pollution sources. They can worsen allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is caused by inadequate combustion in a natural gas appliance. CO poisoning causes flu-like symptoms and can kill you.
How Whole-Home Ventilation Works
House ventilation systems can eliminate pollution from the air in your rooms.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and push out stuffy air.
Plus, some systems from Knochelmann Service Experts maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
