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

Today’s homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy 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 accumulate. 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 Knochelmann Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can take out stale, dirty air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stale air with crisp air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home hold on to heat and moisture in the winter and get rid of 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 impact the air your family breathes.

  1. 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.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest typical indoor pollution sources. They can worsen 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 kill you.

How Whole-Home Ventilation Works

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

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and push out musty air.

Plus, some models from Knochelmann Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
