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

Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy 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 accumulate. 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 trades the stale 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 lousy or irritate persistent conditions like allergies or asthma.

There are several pollution sources that affect 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. Excessive concentration can lead to respiratory inflammation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest typical indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate 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 be fatal.

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 musty air.

Plus, some equipment from Becht/Givens Service Experts maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.

  • Best for humid climates

If you live in the Midwest, your home can benefit from adding both kinds of equipment.
