Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Windsor
Today’s homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling costs. 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 Bryant Heating & Cooling Service Experts, you can expel musty, polluted air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stuffy air with crisp air from outdoors. Some models can help your home hold on to 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 lousy or aggravate persistent 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 common household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can lead to respiratory inflammation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest typical indoor pollution sources. They can worsen allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made by incomplete 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 get rid of 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 models from Bryant Heating & Cooling Service Experts enhance energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
