Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in the Wasatch Front region
Today’s homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility expenses. But that efficiency also makes your home more airtight, 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 pollutants 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 Barlow Service Experts, you can take out musty, contaminated 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 feel bad or aggravate ongoing conditions like allergies or asthma.
There are a couple of pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can result in respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most typical indoor pollution sources. They can worsen 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 be deadly.
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 musty air.
Plus, some equipment from Barlow Service Experts maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
