Why You Need a Proper Ventilation System
Without a proper ventilation system, every time your air conditioner or furnace runs, you circulate the same stale air throughout your home. This allows smelly odors from cooking, pets and other sources to linger. This is an uncomfortable nuisance, but it gets worse.
Air that's trapped in your home can also contain harmful, toxic chemicals that could be threatening the health of your family. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the concentration of pollutants can be up to 10 times greater inside your home than outside.
Common household contaminants found even in the best-kept homes include:

Aprilaire Ventilation vs. Natural Ventilation
Natural ventilation occurs when outside air enters through your open doors and windows. Natural ventilation isn't always feasible due to security risks and weather conditions. And it isn't always effective at bringing in enough fresh outdoor air or expelling enough polluted indoor air.
Aprilaire ventilation solutions are installed as part of your heating and cooling system to remove polluted indoor air and then distribute filtered and conditioned outdoor air throughout the house.
Aprilaire ventilation allows you to automatically control the freshness of your air year-round. You manage both the quantity and quality of air being brought into your home.
