Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Kansas City
Today’s homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy bills. But that efficiency also seals your home, which is bad news for indoor air quality.
We spend most of our lives in a building—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 Neal Harris Service Experts, you can pull musty, polluted air from your home. Then, the system trades the stuffy air with crisp air from outdoors. Some equipment can help your home retain heat and moisture in the winter and get rid of more of it in the summer.
Get started by requesting a no-cost comfort analysis. Our Experts can suggest the system that’s best for your home and climate in Kansas City. 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 ongoing issues like allergies or asthma.
There are several 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. Excessive concentration can result in respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most frequent indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is caused by incomplete 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 introduce fresh air into the house—and expel musty air.
Plus, some systems from Neal Harris Service Experts maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
