Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Fort Worth
Today’s homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy expenses. But that efficiency also makes your home more airtight, which is bad news for indoor air quality.
We spend most of our lives indoors—up to 90 percent, according to an EPA study. And having an airtight home means chemicals can collect. 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 Calverley Service Experts, you can pull stuffy, polluted air from your home. Then, the system replaces the musty air with fresh air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home keep 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 persistent conditions like allergies or asthma.
There are a couple of pollution sources that affect the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can cause respiratory irritation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most frequent indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
- 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 deadly.
How Whole-Home Ventilation Works
House ventilation systems can get rid of pollution from the air in your home.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and expel stuffy air.
Plus, some models from Calverley Service Experts maximize energy efficiency. This gives fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
