Though they are typically more efficient, updated homes don’t breathe the way older homes do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep inside air in and outside air out.

When this occurs, a whole-house ventilation system is recommended. Ventilation systems exchange dirty inside air for cleaner exterior air without sacrificing energy savings.
