Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Fort Lauderdale
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling expenses. But that efficiency also means less airflow, 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 collect. 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 expel stuffy, polluted air from your home. Then, the system replaces the stuffy air with clean air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home retain 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 bad or irritate chronic 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 regular household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can lead to respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest frequent indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate 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 be deadly.
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 expel musty air.
Plus, some systems from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
