Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Tulsa
Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy expenses. But that efficiency also means less airflow, 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 pollutants 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 Jack Nelson Service Experts, you can expel musty, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system replaces the stuffy air with crisp air from outdoors. Some equipment can help your home retain 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 everyday 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 worsen allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made 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 home.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and push out stale air.
Plus, some models from Jack Nelson Service Experts make the most of energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
