Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Salt Lake City

Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy costs. But that efficiency also means less airflow, 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 contaminants can build up. The EPA says this can make your home’s air quality two to five times worse than outdoor air.

With a whole-home ventilation system from Mountainwest Service Experts, you can take out stuffy, dirty air from your home. Then, the system replaces the musty air with crisp air from outdoors. Some models 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 few pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can result in respiratory irritation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest common indoor pollution sources. They can worsen allergies and asthma.
  3. Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is caused by incomplete 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 get rid of pollution from the air in your rooms.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and expel musty air.

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