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

Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy bills. But that efficiency also seals your home, 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 contaminants can collect. The EPA says this can cause your home’s air quality to be two to five times worse than outdoor air.

With a whole-home ventilation system from Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can pull stale, dirty air from your home. Then, the system trades the stale air with fresh air from outdoors. Some models can help your home keep heat and moisture in the winter and get rid of more of it in the summer.

Get started by requesting a no-cost comfort analysis. Our Experts can advise you on the unit that’s ideal for your home and climate in Oakville. Plus, all our work is upheld by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*

Why Home Ventilation is Important

Having poor indoor air quality can make you feel bad or worsen chronic issues like allergies or asthma.

There are a few pollution sources that alter 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. Excessive concentration can result in respiratory irritation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest common indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
  3. 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 kill you.

How Whole-Home Ventilation Works

House ventilation systems can eliminate pollution from the air in your rooms.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring fresh air into the house—and get rid of stale air.

Plus, some systems from Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning make the most of energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
