How to Keep Your Home Healthy
Sealing leaky HVAC ducts controls fresh air, reduces dust and better controls moisture, improving the air quality in your home.See Rebates
Most heat pumps are fitted with advanced air filtration systems that help prevent allergens and pollutants from entering your home.See Rebates
Replacing a poorly vented gas furnace with a sealed combustion system or all-electric heat pump system helps prevent harmful gases from escaping into your home.See Rebates
Along with overcoming heatwaves, a good air conditioning system includes air filters for healthier indoor air quality during the summer.See Rebates
Heat Pump Water Heaters
While gas-fueled water heaters burn fossil fuels, electric heat pump water heaters are combustion-free, for a cleaner, healthier home with fewer emissions.See Rebates
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are typically safer than storage water heaters because there’s no tank that can overheat and no risk of bursting from a rise in pressure.See Rebates
R-44 or greater attic insulation helps maintain a more consistent temperature, allowing for better humidity and mold/moisture control.See Rebates
Dryer vents need to be properly installed to prevent humidity and indoor air problems.
Sealing exposed crawlspaces and installing a vapor barrier can reduce or eliminate musty odors in your home.
If you have an attached garage, be mindful to properly ventilate it when using chemical products and never warm your car up in your garage.
Fireplaces with dirty chimneys or malfunctioning flues should be cleaned and fully operating in order to maintain clean indoor air.
