Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Kitchener

Current 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 in a building—up to 90 percent, according to an EPA study. And having an airtight home means pollutants 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 Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts, you can pull stuffy, dirty air from your home. Then, the system trades the musty air with clean air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home hold on to 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 worsen ongoing conditions like allergies or asthma.

There are a couple of pollution sources that impact the air your family breathes.

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can cause respiratory irritation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest typical indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
  3. 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 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 infuse fresh air into the house—and expel stale air.

Plus, some models from Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts maximize energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
