Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Tempe
Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling bills. 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 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 Orangutan Home Services, you can expel stuffy, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system replaces the stuffy air with clean air from outdoors. Some systems can help your home retain 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 feel bad or worsen ongoing problems 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 regular household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can result in respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most 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 deadly.
How Whole-Home Ventilation Works
House ventilation systems can get rid of pollution from the air in your rooms.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring fresh air into the house—and get rid of musty air.
Plus, some equipment from Orangutan Home Services maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
