Indoor Air Quality

Although we hear a lot about outdoor pollution being a pressing issue, indoor air pollution can be worse than it is outside. The exterior walls of your home act like a barrier to the toxins and hold them inside, allowing them to build up. Some of these pollutants come from the outdoor air and soil only to seep in through cracks in the walls and foundation, or through an inefficient ventilation system. Worse than these can be the pollutants we create inside our very homes. Our furnaces and water heaters can produce Carbon Monoxide gas, an odorless and toxic chemical that silently attacks your respiratory system. Cleaning chemicals and other products we use inside can also contribute to chemicals building up inside that we should not be breathing.

Ventilation is Key

ventilation2If you feel your home is having indoor air quality issues that could be detrimental to your health, improper ventilation may be the culprit. The indoor air is either not being filtered properly in your home, or there may be inadequate air circulation throughout the rooms of your home. Stagnant air in homes creates the perfect environment for toxins and allergens to accumulate. As well as providing the diagnosis of your home’s air quality, Beaver Brothers is also committed to providing our customers a full set of solutions to fix these problems – and we have the experience to back it up.

Power Usage

5 5 1
Gentlemen, We just got our monthly Home Energy Report from Duke Power. The report tracks our kilowatt hour usage monthly going back a year and compares our usage to the “Average Home” and that of an energy “Efficient Home.” Our track record before February showed that we ranged between 200-800 kilowatt hours above the Average Home. The downward spiral of our energy usage tracks exactly to the installation of the geothermal HVAC unit by you and your team. We are now tracking consistently with the “Average Home” and are only about 200 kilowatt hours above the “Efficient Home.” The big number however is that we are 1,000 kilowatt hours below our usage in June of last year! Now, I know that circumstances out of our control can raise or lower kilowatt hour usage, but Jan and I are convinced the numbers relate directly to the geothermal system. From a dollar standpoint, we are paying a range of $50-75 less per month to Duke Power. Just thought that you and your team would appreciate a testimonial regarding the value of their work and the products that they represent. Sincerely, Rick
