Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Kingston
Today’s homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy 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 contaminants can build up. 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 Kingston Home Services by Enercare, you can expel musty, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system trades the musty air with crisp air from outdoors. Some models can help your home hold on to 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 sick or worsen persistent problems like allergies or asthma.
There are several pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can lead to respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most frequent indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is created by insufficient 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 living space.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and expel stale air.
Plus, some systems from Kingston Home Services by Enercare make the most of energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
