Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Houston
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy costs. But that efficiency also makes your home more airtight, 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 chemicals can accumulate. 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 Church Services, you can expel stale, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system replaces the musty air with clean air from outdoors. Some equipment can help your home keep 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 problems like allergies or asthma.
There are several pollution sources that affect the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in everyday household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can cause respiratory inflammation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest typical indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
- 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 remove pollution from the air in your home.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring fresh air into the house—and push out musty air.
Plus, some models from Church Services make the most of energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
