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 make your home’s air quality two to five times worse than outdoor air.

With a whole-home ventilation system from Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, you can pull musty, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stuffy air with clean air from outdoors. Some equipment 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 suggest the system that’s ideal 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 bad or worsen chronic problems like allergies or asthma.

There are several pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in everyday household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can result in respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most typical indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
  3. 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 eliminate pollution from the air in your rooms.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and get rid of stuffy air.

Plus, some models from Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
