The Passive House Project

Posted on Thu, Mar 29, 2012

Enter the Passive House Project

Did you know that buildings are responsible for 48 % of greenhouse gas emissions per year and that 76 % of electricity generated goes to the building sector. In the past couple years, a new and innovative option has been brought about to establish a way to save our environment and save thousands of dollars in reduced energy usage. It goes by the name passive house which refers to the building style of buildings that are well insulated, air tight, and primarily heated by passive solar. In passive homes, energy losses are minimized and an airflow is provided through an energy recovery ventilator that purifies the air as well as prevents energy loss and keeps the air supply fresh and constant. This is where we come in as a company. Air ventilation systems such as the ones needed for a passive house are supplied by UltimateAir to ensure that the best air quality can be provided for any home, office, or school at an affordable cost. UltimateAir is one of the only companies that supplies air ventilation systems that are completely green and recover 95% of energy that would normally be lost. You don’t have to have a passive house to purchase our ventilation system called The RecoupAerator, but it makes it all the more affordable and healthy for your body, your home, and the environment.

Breathe Healthy

To be able to take a deep breath in your own home that you know is safe, pure, clean, and healthy is an assurance that you can’t pass up. At UltimateAir we have a product that will allow you to finally be able to trust the oxygen and air particles going in your body. The RecoupAerator, a top-of-the-line air filtration system, does all that and more! This ERV system recovers 95% of would-be lost energy as well as the filtration of air particles as small as 3.5 microns.
This month at UltimateAir we have created a webinar that will help you learn more about the RecoupAerator, your health and the many reasons why this product is for you. Each month we will come out with new and interesting topics that will relate to your life including tips for air safety, indoor air pollution, ways to improve your living, and green energy.

Moisture, Mold and Indoor Air Quality

Posted on Thu, Feb 02, 2012

The Problem

Mildew is a mold that grows under warm (temperatures between 77 – 86 degrees F.), wet, and humid conditions (relative humidity between 62% - 93%).

Window condensation is one visible manifestation of excess humidity, but ideal conditions also are found lurking out of sight within wall cavities, in crawl spaces and attics.

The Masking Tradition and Indoor Air Quality

Posted on Mon, Jan 23, 2012

Indoor air can be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside

Today’s well-insulated and sealed homes trap odors and chemicals from rugs, furniture, and household cleaning products. Common sense and studies have shown that the by exhausting the pollutants and replacing this exhausted air with filtered, fresh air from outside, the quality of the home environment is uncommonly improved.  By adding heat and moisture recovery to this air exchange (in essence, recovering the energy already used to heat and cool the home), ventilation and filtration can be done for as little as 25 cents per day.
