Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Tempe
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy bills. But that efficiency also seals your home, which is bad news for indoor air quality.
We spend most of our lives in a building—up to 90 percent, according to an EPA study. And having an airtight home means chemicals can accumulate. 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 Bob Brown Service Experts, you can expel stuffy, polluted air from your home. Then, the system replaces the musty air with fresh 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 sick or aggravate ongoing conditions 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. Increased concentration can result in respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest typical indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made 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 home.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and push out stuffy air.
Plus, some equipment from Bob Brown Service Experts enhance energy efficiency. This gives fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
