Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Oklahoma City
Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility expenses. But that efficiency also means less airflow, 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 contaminants 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 Gordon's Service Experts, you can pull stuffy, contaminated air from your home. Then, the system trades the musty air with clean air from outdoors. Some models can help your home hold on to 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 feel lousy or irritate chronic conditions 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 common 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 common indoor pollution sources. They can aggravate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is made 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 get rid of pollution from the air in your living space.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to infuse fresh air into the house—and expel stale air.
Plus, some systems from Gordon's Service Experts enhance energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
