Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in London
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility bills. But that efficiency also means less airflow, 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 chemicals can accumulate. 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 Roy Inch & Sons Home Services by Enercare, you can take out stuffy, dirty air from your home. Then, the system replaces the stale air with crisp air from outdoors. Some systems 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 feel lousy or worsen ongoing issues like allergies or asthma.
There are a few pollution sources that impact the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in everyday household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can result in respiratory irritation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest frequent indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
- 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 living space.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and push out stale air.
Plus, some equipment from Roy Inch & Sons Home Services by Enercare enhance energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
