Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Clearwater
Today’s homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your energy costs. But that efficiency also seals your home, 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 lead to your home’s air quality being two to five times worse than outdoor air.
With a whole-home ventilation system from Midway Services, you can take out stale, dirty air from your home. Then, the system swaps the stuffy 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 feel bad or aggravate chronic conditions 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 regular household things, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can result in respiratory irritation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the most common indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is created by incomplete 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 introduce fresh air into the house—and push out stale air.
Plus, some systems from Midway Services enhance energy efficiency. This provides fresh airflow without excessive energy expenditure.
