The most important environmental advantage of the UltimateAir RecoupAerator is that it allows everyone to build and weatherize as close to air-tight as possible. The Recoupaeraotor exchanges the stale indoor air with filtered fresh air while recovering and saving the heat or cooling energy used to condition the indoor environment. The RecoupAerator effectively transfers 95% of the heat energy from the leaving stale air stream to the incoming fresh air. Looking at the building system as a whole, we can create more efficient and higher quality indoor environments. Additionally, the RecoupAerator offers the lowest electrical use of any whole-house Energy Recovery Ventilator in the industry. (Efficiency/Performance Third-Party Test Data)
Stirling Technology, UltimateAir’s parent company, began as a manufacturer of an alternative energy system based on years of expertise with Stirling engines. Stirling engines run on any external heat source invented in the late 1800s by a Scottish minister named Robert Stirling. Stirling Technology is now the only company to manufacture a compact version of the Stirling engine, capable of powering small villages in underdeveloped countries. Today, Stirling continues to develop patented features and to license its technology throughout the world including China, Japan, South America, and others.
Indoor Air Quality is an important component of ‘building green’– maybe the most important component. But there’s no sense in building an energy-efficient home if the indoor air quality makes your family sick. All of us at UltimateAir are dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality indoor environment possible.
Building "to-code" represents a minimum grade of construction. In other words, you can't build it any worse than "to-code". For those who are interested in a healthy indoor living environment, ventilating your home "to-code" might not be good enough. With so many other areas to compromise, clean healthy air shouldn't be one of them. There's nothing wrong with building a home that exceeds code, especially when it concerns indoor air quality.
