Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Ocala
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy expenses. 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 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 stuffy, polluted air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stale air with crisp air from outdoors. Some equipment can help your home keep 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 sick or aggravate ongoing 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 products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can result in respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest common indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made by inadequate 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 remove pollution from the air in your rooms.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and expel stuffy air.
Plus, some systems from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning enhance energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
