Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Hilton Head Island

Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy expenses. But that efficiency also makes your home more airtight, 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 pollutants 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 Heating & Air Conditioning, you can pull musty, polluted air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stuffy air with fresh air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home keep 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 bad or worsen chronic problems 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 everyday household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can lead to respiratory irritation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most typical indoor pollution sources. They can worsen 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 living space.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and push out stuffy air.

Plus, some equipment from Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning enhance energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
