A New Perspective on Indoor Air Quality

Posted on Mon, Jun 04, 2012


    Hi! My name is Henry and I have recently begun working with UltimateAir.
This summer I will delve into health and energy efficiency in the context of the RecoupAerator: an Energy Recovery Ventilation system (ERV). Prior to joining this company, I had little knowledge of ERVs let alone the urgent need to ventilate my home. Doesn’t air conditioning bring in fresh air? Besides bugs and the occasional rogue bird, what’s wrong with opening a window? I had to take a deep breath and admit I was clueless to the issue. Parts of this blog will reveal how oblivious I was to the role of ERVs in ‘green’ home technology. By effectively filtering or diluting indoor toxins such as radon, pollen, and various formaldehydes, ventilation (via a RecoupAerator) is one of the most necessary yet easiest steps towards healthy living.

What’s New At UltimateAir

Posted on Thu, May 31, 2012

Recently, the UltimateAir crew got a chance to attend The Kentucky Habitat for Humanity Green Housing Conference. This year the conference was entitled “Beginning With The End In Mind.” On site from from UltimateAir was Jason Morosco who was also a panelist and Craig Kinzelman. The conference focused completely on the use of sustainable energy and green building techniques in ways that maintain housing affordability. The first day of the conference our UltimateAir staff got a great chance to hear some excellent speakers, meet some of the newest innovators in green technology and get hands on experience with the newest designs. The second day Jason and Craig got a chance to show the people one of our RecoupAerator units. It was a perfect opportunity to show people the advantages of having an indoor air filtration and ventilation system and why UltimateAir has all the accommodations for your home or workplace. So you may be wondering, “what's next?”

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.
