Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Voorhees
Today’s homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling costs. 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 chemicals can build up. 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 Atmostemp Service Experts, you can take out stale, polluted air from your home. Then, the system trades the stale air with fresh air from outdoors. Some equipment can help your home retain heat and moisture in the winter and expel more of it in the summer.

Why Home Ventilation is Important
Having poor indoor air quality can make you feel bad or aggravate persistent conditions like allergies or asthma.
There are a couple of pollution sources that impact the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in everyday household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can lead to respiratory inflammation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest typical indoor pollution sources. They can worsen allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is caused by inadequate combustion in a natural gas appliance. CO poisoning causes flu-like symptoms and can be fatal.
How Whole-Home Ventilation Works
House ventilation systems can eliminate pollution from the air in your rooms.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and expel stuffy air.
Plus, some systems from Atmostemp Service Experts maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
