Although the natural absorption of CO2 by the world's oceans helps mitigate the climatic effects of anthropogenic emissions of CO2, it also results in a decrease in the pH of the oceans."

Same as your house except on a small scale, in the winter if we get a warm day I always try and get fresh air into my house. I also recommend a ph monitor, not that expensive and it gives you 24/7 ph monitoring, if you are testing often do to ph problems, it will pay for itself in a short time.
Thanks for the details much appreciated. I live in sunny south Florida ill put a fan Ina window to blow fresh air in the house
