Forward-Thinking Technology Improves Air in Homes
At CES 2017, air drew significant attention of the tech industry. Companies like Coway, Wair, and Smart & Blue showed off their latest technological innovations, all revolving around air, and many of the products showcased had powerful implications for smart homes and IAQ. Green Tech Media (GTM) reflected on this year’s show forecasting five trends for the smart energy home of the future. Interestingly, one of the trends is “tech for better air and water.” You can read the full GTM article here. GTM contributor Katie Fehrenbacher explains, “Beyond energy, other resources are beginning to draw the attention of the tech industry — air and water.” Aeroseal is a great example of technology for better air. Over 600 contractors worldwide use Aeroseal technology to achieve better air in homes (and buildings). There has been story after story of homeowners approaching HVAC contractors with issues pertaining to poor IAQ in their homes. More specifically, Barron Heating & Cooling in Bellingham, WA has an incredible story. One of its service techs had assessed that a particular homeowner needed new HVAC equipment. During the assessment, the homeowner added she had significant health issues, including an extreme rash on her face which made her uncomfortable going out in public. Doctors could not explain it. Barron Heating & Cooling comfort advisor Wes Diskin recommended and performed a Home & Duct Performance Assessment. The advisor found mold, duct leakage, and envelope infiltration causing unhealthy air in the home’s living space. To fix the issues, the dealer performed various performance contracting services, which included sealing the duct work with Aeroseal. The results were outstanding! Barron Heating & Cooling owner John Barron reflected, “Three weeks later, she called to let us know something amazing. In those three weeks, her face, which had been irritated for five years prior, had almost completely cleared up. That sounds unbelievable, but it’s not, it actually happened. We believe what was affecting her was a combination of insulation fibers and mold spores entering the home.” The happy homeowner added, “My house is now my fortress and my refuge.” This is a great example and success story about using technology for better air!
