Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Hilton Head Island
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility 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 chemicals 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 Epperson Service Experts, you can pull musty, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stuffy air with fresh air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home hold on to heat and moisture in the winter and discharge more of it in the summer.

Why Home Ventilation is Important
Having poor indoor air quality can make you feel lousy or worsen chronic problems like allergies or asthma.
There are a few pollution sources that impact the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in everyday household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can lead to respiratory irritation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most typical indoor pollution sources. They can worsen allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made by insufficient 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 get rid of pollution from the air in your living space.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring fresh air into the house—and push out stuffy air.
Plus, some equipment from Epperson Service Experts enhance energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
