Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Nashville
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy bills. But that efficiency also makes your home more airtight, which is bad news for indoor air quality.
We spend most of our lives indoors—up to 90 percent, according to an EPA study. And having an airtight home means contaminants can build up. 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 Donelson Air Service Experts, you can take out stuffy, dirty air from your home. Then, the system trades the musty air with crisp 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 sick or aggravate chronic conditions like allergies or asthma.
There are a few pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in everyday household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can lead to respiratory inflammation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest frequent indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate 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 fatal.
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 musty air.
Plus, some systems from Donelson Air Service Experts enhance energy efficiency. This gives fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
