New homes are tightly built to save energy, but this can often times have a negative impact on the home without proper ventilation.
Air within your home can be up to 10 times more polluted than the air outside. Microbial pollutants like mold, pet dander and plant pollen along with chemicals such as radon and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) create a toxic environment in your home. The build-up of pollutants such as these is shown to lead to allergies, asthma and other health concerns.
To combat the issue of poor ventilation, many studies from Building Science organizations, government and independent building science experts indicate that today’s homes need balanced ventilation throughout the day to maintain a healthy indoor environment.
