Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Edmonton

Modern 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 contaminants can collect. 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 McKinley Heating Service Experts, you can expel stale, polluted air from your home. Then, the system trades the stale air with clean air from outdoors. Some models can help your home keep heat and moisture in the winter and get rid of more of it in the summer.

Get started by requesting a no-cost comfort analysis. Our Experts can recommend the unit that’s best for your home and climate in Edmonton. Plus, all our work is supported by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*

Why Home Ventilation is Important

Having poor indoor air quality can make you sick or irritate persistent conditions like allergies or asthma.

There are a few pollution sources that affect the air your family breathes.

  1. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in common household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can lead to respiratory inflammation and headaches.
  2. Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest frequent indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
  3. 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 living space.

Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and get rid of stale air.

Plus, some models from McKinley Heating Service Experts make the most of energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
