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

Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility 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, polluted air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stale air with fresh 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 sick or aggravate chronic problems like allergies or asthma.

There are a few pollution sources that affect 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. Increased concentration can lead to respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest typical indoor pollution sources. They can worsen allergies and asthma.
  3. Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is created 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 home.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring 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 use.
