Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Jacksonville
Today’s homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling expenses. But that efficiency also makes your home more airtight, which is bad news for indoor air quality.
We spend most of our lives inside—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 Air Engineers Service Experts, you can pull stale, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stale air with fresh air from outdoors. Some systems 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 sick or irritate chronic problems like allergies or asthma.
There are several pollution sources that impact the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can lead to respiratory irritation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest typical indoor pollution sources. They can worsen allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is caused 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 living space.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and expel stale air.
Plus, some systems from Air Engineers Service Experts make the most of energy efficiency. This gives fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
