Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Rochester
Today’s homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy bills. But that efficiency also seals your home, 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 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 Strogen's Service Experts, you can pull musty, polluted air from your home. Then, the system swaps the musty air with fresh air from outdoors. Some models can help your home keep 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 persistent conditions like allergies or asthma.
There are several pollution sources that affect the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in everyday household items, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can lead to respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest typical indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate 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 kill you.
How Whole-Home Ventilation Works
House ventilation systems can get rid of pollution from the air in your home.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to introduce fresh air into the house—and get rid of musty air.
Plus, some models from Strogen's Service Experts make the most of energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
