Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Atlanta
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy expenses. 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 contaminants 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 Peachtree Service Experts, you can pull musty, dirty air from your home. Then, the system trades the musty air with crisp air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home retain 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 worsen chronic issues like allergies or asthma.
There are several pollution sources that impact the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can result in respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest frequent indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate 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 kill you.
How Whole-Home Ventilation Works
House ventilation systems can get rid of pollution from the air in your home.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and expel musty air.
Plus, some equipment from Peachtree Service Experts maximize energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
