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

Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy costs. But that efficiency also makes your home more airtight, 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 accumulate. 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 Norrell Service Experts, you can expel stuffy, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stuffy air with clean air from outdoors. Some models can help your home retain 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 irritate persistent issues 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 cause respiratory irritation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest common indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
  3. Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made by incomplete 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 rooms.

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

Plus, some systems from Norrell Service Experts maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.

Energy Recovery Ventilation

  • Moves moisture and heat to condition incoming air
  • Holds on to more humidity in the winter and limits the amount imported during the summer
  • Ideal for hot areas

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