Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Dallas
Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility bills. 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 Levy & Son Service Experts, you can pull stuffy, polluted air from your home. Then, the system replaces the stuffy air with clean air from outdoors. Some models can help your home retain heat and moisture in the winter and expel more of it in the summer.
Get started by requesting a no-cost comfort analysis. Our Experts can advise you on the system that’s best for your home and climate in Dallas. Plus, all our work is upheld by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*
Why Home Ventilation is Important
Having poor indoor air quality can make you feel lousy or worsen chronic conditions like allergies or asthma.
There are a few pollution sources that affect the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can lead to respiratory irritation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most common indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is created by incomplete 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 get rid of pollution from the air in your home.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring fresh air into the house—and push out stale air.
Plus, some systems from Levy & Son Service Experts maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
