Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Boise
Modern homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your heating and cooling costs. But that efficiency also seals your home, 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 build up. 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 TML Service Experts, you can expel stale, dirty air from your home. Then, the system replaces the stale air with fresh air from outdoors. Some systems 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 sick or irritate persistent issues like allergies or asthma.
There are a few pollution sources that affect the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in regular household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. Excessive concentration can cause respiratory irritation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most 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 eliminate pollution from the air in your living space.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring fresh air into the house—and get rid of stale air.
Plus, some systems from TML Service Experts maximize energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy consumption.
