Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in La Porte
Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility expenses. But that efficiency also means less airflow, 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 make your home’s air quality two to five times worse than outdoor air.
With a whole-home ventilation system from Finch Air Conditioning & Heating, you can expel stale, dirty air from your home. Then, the system trades the musty air with fresh 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 aggravate ongoing issues 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 common household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can lead to respiratory irritation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most frequent indoor pollution sources. They can worsen 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 kill you.
How Whole-Home Ventilation Works
House ventilation systems can remove pollution from the air in your home.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and get rid of musty air.
Plus, some models from Finch Air Conditioning & Heating maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
