Control Indoor Pollution with a Whole-Home Ventilation System in Fort Worth
Current homes are more energy efficient, which is good news for your utility bills. 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 chemicals can collect. 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 Stark Services, you can expel stale, dirty air from your home. Then, the system replaces the musty air with fresh air from outdoors. Some models can help your home hold on to 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 a couple of pollution sources that alter the air your family breathes.
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemicals are found in everyday household products, like furniture, flooring, paint and cleaning products. High concentration can cause respiratory irritation and headaches.
- Dust, mold and pet dander. These are the largest common indoor pollution sources. They can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
- Carbon monoxide. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is created by inadequate 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 remove pollution from the air in your living space.
Balanced ventilation uses exhaust fans to bring fresh air into the house—and push out stuffy air.
Plus, some equipment from Stark Services maximize energy efficiency. This delivers fresh airflow without excessive energy use.
