Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Melbourne
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling expenses. But that efficiency also seals your home, 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 pollutants 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 Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, you can pull stale, dirty air from your home. Then, the system replaces the stuffy air with clean air from outdoors. Some equipment can help your home hold on to heat and moisture in the winter and discharge more of it in the summer.

Why Home Ventilation is Important
Having poor indoor air quality can make you sick or aggravate persistent issues like allergies or asthma.
There are several pollution sources that affect the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can lead to respiratory inflammation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most typical indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate 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 kill you.
How Whole-Home Ventilation Works
House ventilation systems can remove pollution from the air in your home.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and push out stale air.
Plus, some models from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning make the most of energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
