Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Winnipeg
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling expenses. 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 collect. 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 Winnipeg Supply Service Experts, you can take out stale, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stuffy air with fresh air from outdoors. Some equipment 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 sick or worsen persistent issues 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 products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Increased concentration can cause respiratory inflammation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest common indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate 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 be fatal.
How Whole-Home Ventilation Works
House ventilation systems can remove pollution from the air in your rooms.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and push out stuffy air.
Plus, some systems from Winnipeg Supply Service Experts maximize energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
