Superior Indoor Air Quality

Air quality and the harmful substances in the air we breathe often go unnoticed because air is invisible. But, according to the EPA, air quality inside the average home is five times more contaminated than outdoors, and we spend 90 percent of our daily lives indoors. Whole-house air filtration systems allow homeowners to take control of their indoor air quality by flushing out harmful pollutants with clean, fresh, healthy air.


How the RecoupAerator Improves Indoor Air Quality

If you're serious about improving your indoor air quality, then invest in an Ultimate ventilation system. As an industry leader, the RecoupAerator:

  • Helps to improve indoor air quality by exchanging all the air in your home with fresh filtered air approximately every two hours. The RecoupAerator is the only air filtration system in its class to have self balancing exhaust and fresh air fans for easy correct installation.
  • Provides both ventilation and filtration, capturing pollens and mold spores before fresh air is released in to the home. RecoupAerator's technology allows it to remove over 95% of the contaminants as small as 1 micron as fresh air is brought in to the home.
  • Can be used year round with its WarmFlo Defrost System. If you're living in a cold weather state, many of the RecoupAerator's competitors cannot fully function when the temperature drops to 10 degrees Fahrenheit.
ERV

The average household today contains more man-made chemicals than an average chemical plant 100 years ago. In most homes, ventilation is provided accidentally when air leaks through the building envelope. This natural ventilation is unreliable because its dependent on inconsistent weather conditions.
