Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in San Antonio
Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling 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 contaminants can collect. The EPA says this can lead to your home’s air quality being two to five times worse than outdoor air.
With a whole-home ventilation system from San Antonio Air Service Experts, you can pull stuffy, polluted air from your home. Then, the system swaps the musty air with crisp air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home retain heat and moisture in the winter and get rid of more of it in the summer.

Why Home Ventilation is Important
Having poor indoor air quality can make you feel bad or aggravate chronic issues like allergies or asthma.
There are a couple of 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. High concentration can result in respiratory inflammation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most frequent indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is created 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 get rid of pollution from the air in your rooms.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and push out stale air.
Plus, some equipment from San Antonio Air Service Experts make the most of energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
