By now you’ve probably heard how important it is to have good ventilation in your Rocky River home. Especially if your home was built in the 1980s or early 1990s when ventilation issues were prevalent, you may not have enough clean air moving through your home. But, how much ventilation do you need? What is enough and if you don’t have it, how do you ensure your home is retrofitted properly?

Especially if you recently added insulation and weather proofing to your home but have not yet updated your ventilation, you might have a major air quality problem, so call Pompeii’s Plumbing & Heating to have us evaluate the indoor air quality needs of your Rocky River home.
