Residential Air Quality
Respiratory ailments, often attributed to poor indoor air quality, represent the third largest cause of death in the U.S., ranking only behind heart disease and cancer, according to the American Medical Association.
Problems with indoor air quality go beyond health related issues – productivity, absenteeism, product integrity and even one’s sense of well-being may be adversely affected by poor air quality.
Individuals with health problems, such as allergies or asthma, need to be protected from poor indoor air quality, as do certain other groups such as the elderly or the very young, who may have compromised or underdeveloped respiratory systems.
One of the best ways to control contaminants is to eliminate them at the source. And one of the most effective ways to do that is to install an air purification system.
Another innovative option is a germicidal lamp. Both products attach to your furnace or air handler, where contaminants are removed and destroyed before air is recirculated into your home.
Residential Certified Air Duct Sealing
AAA Heating & Cooling, Inc. is PTCS Certified. Only PTCS accredited HVAC companies can help you achieve Tax Credit Incentives.
If your home is heated or cooled with a ducted system, it’s important to make sure your ducts aren’t leaking. Leaky ducts let hot or cold air escape, which wastes energy and money. Sealing your duct work not only can trim your energy costs, but it makes your home more comfortable and reduces indoor air pollution. This service has helped customers achieve a reduction in energy consumption up to 30%!
Ways to Save
- Heat and cool only the areas in your home that you want to condition, rather than heating and cooling the crawlspace and attic.
- Save utility dollars by allowing your furnace and air conditioner to run shorter cycles.
- Improve indoor air quality by reducing particulate matter and other air pollutants from entering your ductwork system and being distributed into your home.
With a 50% reduction, you will qualify for an Oregon Residential Energy Tax Credit of up to $250 (per duct system). With a 50% reduction you will also qualify for an Energy Trust of Oregon rebate of up to $350, plus an additional $35 just for doing the testing. That is a total of $685 of incentives, plus what you will save on your heating and cooling bills.
