Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Edmonton
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy expenses. 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 collect. 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 Rob's Albertan Service Experts, you can pull stale, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system trades the musty air with fresh air from outdoors. Some equipment can help your home keep heat and moisture in the winter and get rid of more of it in the summer.

Why Home Ventilation is Important
Having poor indoor air quality can make you sick or worsen chronic problems like allergies or asthma.
There are a few pollution sources that affect the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can cause respiratory inflammation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest frequent indoor pollution sources. They can worsen 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 fatal.
How Whole-Home Ventilation Works
House ventilation systems can remove pollution from the air in your rooms.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and push out stale air.
Plus, some systems from Rob's Albertan Service Experts enhance energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
