Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in West Palm Beach
Today’s 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 indoors—up to 90 percent, according to an EPA study. And having an airtight home means chemicals 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 Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can take out musty, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system swaps the musty air with clean 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 irritate persistent problems like allergies or asthma.
There are a few pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in everyday household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can cause respiratory irritation 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 created 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 bring fresh air into the house—and expel stale air.
Plus, some systems from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning maximize energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
