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

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 inside—up to 90 percent, according to an EPA study. And having an airtight home means contaminants can accumulate. 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 Komfort Air, you can take out musty, dirty air from your home. Then, the system trades the stale air with crisp 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 feel bad or irritate ongoing issues like allergies or asthma.

There are a few pollution sources that impact the air your family breathes.

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in everyday household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can result in respiratory inflammation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most typical indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
  3. Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is created by insufficient 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 remove pollution from the air in your rooms.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and expel stale air.

Plus, some systems from Komfort Air enhance energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
