Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Louisville
Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility bills. But that efficiency also means less airflow, 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 build up. The EPA says this can lead to your home’s air quality being two to five times worse than outdoor air.
With a whole-home ventilation system from Becht/Givens Service Experts, you can expel musty, polluted air from your home. Then, the system swaps the musty air with clean air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home retain 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 irritate persistent conditions like allergies or asthma.
There are several pollution sources that affect the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can cause respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest frequent indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate 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 deadly.
How Whole-Home Ventilation Works
House ventilation systems can remove 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 Becht/Givens Service Experts maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
