The air quality of the air we breathe indoors has become an increasingly important environmental concern. The following are facts that have been determined by recognized authorities in the fields of health and air quality: 

Frequently Asked Questions:

 

How does air conditioning work?

 Air conditioners cool your home by removing heat from the indoor air and transferring that heat to the outdoor air. This heat is extracted from the home by passing indoor air across a refrigerant coil in the indoor unit. Lines to the outdoor unit then carry the heat, where it is released to the outside air. The cooling cycle continues until the indoor temperature reaches the thermostat setting

 
 
How does a Heat Pump Work?

 The electric heat pump heats your home by moving existing heat from one area to another. An outdoor coil absorbs heat, which exists in the outside air and transfers it via refrigerant lines to the indoor coil, where it is released to warm your home. Electric heat pumps contain auxiliary (back-up) electric resistance heaters, which work with the heat pump when the outdoor temperature goes below the balance point (the point where your home's heating requirement is greater than the heat collected by the electric heat pump alone.)

 In the summer an electric heat pump cools your home by removing heat from the indoor air and transferring that heat to the outdoor air. This heat is extracted from the home by passing indoor air across a refrigerant coil in the indoor unit. Lines to the outdoor unit then carry the heat, where it is released to the outside air. The cooling cycle continues until the indoor temperature reaches the thermostat setting.

  • Most people spend 60% to 90% of their time indoors. (American Lung Association)

  • 50% of all illnesses are either caused by, or aggravated by, polluted indoor air. (American College of Allergists)

  • The levels of some hazardous pollutants in indoor air has been found to be up to 70 times greater than in outdoor air. (USEPA)

  • Studies have shown that two out of three indoor air quality problems involve the HVAC System.

  • More than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies.

  • One out of six people who suffer from allergies do so because of the direct relationship to fungus and bacteria in air duct systems. (Total Health and Better Health Magazines)

  • 10-12 million Americans suffer from Asthma. (American College of Allergists)

  • Children and the elderly are especially affected by polluted indoor air. (Department of Consumer Affairs)

  • Most commercially available fiberglass furnace filters are less than 7% efficient. (ASHRAE)
