Homes today are super-energy efficient. While that’s great for your pocket book, it’s not good for your health.
Building codes have steadily made homes more airtight to keep tempered air inside. But comfortable air isn’t the only thing trapped within your home. Pollutants are also trapped inside. These pollutants can lead to allergies and other sinus issues. Not to mention they make you feel less than your best.
That’s why we offer seven different solutions to combat stale air in your home.

Surface mold can grow on the AC coils and airborne bacteria can be distributed by your ductwork. Ultra-violet light can kill 99.99% of germs and viruses. They are able to kill epidemic bacteria such as E-Coli, SARS, Staphylococcus Aureus, Salmonella and Avian Bird Flu. Making your home germ-free is a great way to reduce allergy symptoms.
Airborne particles contain some pretty nasty stuff. Dust mites, mold spores and carcinogens – all floating around in the air you breathe. One way to reduce the amount of toxins you’re breathing is to upgrade your air filter. Electronic Air Cleaners capture up to 99% of airborne particles as compared to the standard fiberglass filter which only traps about 50%.
Today’s best thermostats are wi-fi – just like your phone or laptop. A wi-fi thermostat can communicate with you when you’re not home. And that can save you a lot of money. Alerting you when there is a heat outage and adjusting your HVAC to turn up or down depending on your location are a couple of the features that contribute to big money savings.
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air quality can be up to five times worse than outdoors. Why? Your home is a living, breathing thing. It is constantly creating and trapping cooking gases, your exhaled breath and off-gases from building materials. A ventilation system provides an efficient way to trade your dirty indoor air for fresh outdoor air. No matter what the weather’s doing outside.
A whole-house humidifier will constantly monitor the moisture level in your home and keep it just right. Not only will you feel better, but you’ll spend less money on your heating bills each winter. More humidity will allow you to lower your temp AND raise your comfort. Win – Win!
Your air conditioner is designed to control temperature, not humidity. You need humidity control to maintain comfortable, healthy conditions in your home. Excessive humidity is not only uncomfortable in the summer; it can also lead to mold.
With technology installed in over 100,000 applications, iWave-R is the world’s first self-cleaning, no maintenance needlepoint bi-polar ionization generator designed specifically for treating air in residential duct A/C systems.
As the air flows past the iWave-R, positive and negative ions actively purify the supply air, killing mold, bacteria and viruses in the coil and living space. The ionization process also reduces allergens, smoke and static electricity, as well as controlling odors (cooking, pet, VOCs) and other particles (no more sunbeams) in the air without creating ozone or any harmful byproducts.
Save an average of 23% in heating and cooling costs each year.
Most thermostats only read the temperature in one place (usually the hallway) which can make other rooms uncomfortable. ecobee4 comes with a room sensor to help manage hot and cold spots.
When you place sensors in your favorite rooms, ecobee4 can read the temperature and detect occupancy. That's how it ensures comfort in the rooms that matter
