Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Waukegan
Today’s homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy costs. But that efficiency also makes your home more airtight, 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 pollutants can accumulate. The EPA says this can cause your home’s air quality to be two to five times worse than outdoor air.
With a whole-home ventilation system from Robinson Service Experts , you can take out stuffy, dirty air from your home. Then, the system replaces the musty air with clean 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 feel bad or aggravate ongoing problems 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 regular household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can cause respiratory sensitivity and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the biggest typical indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is created by insufficient 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 remove pollution from the air in your rooms.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring fresh air into the house—and push out musty air.
Plus, some systems from Robinson Service Experts make the most of energy efficiency. This gives fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
