Central Vacuum

Central vacuum systems are a type of vacuum cleaner in which a central unit is in a remote location in your house or business. Central vacuum cleaners collect dirt through outlets connected to tubing installed behind your walls, and through this the dirt travels to the central unit.

Central vacuuming allows you to vacuum with ease because you don’t need to carry a vacuum around. All you need to vacuum is a hose and a power brush unit.

A central vacuum system has many advantages over more common portable vacuum cleaners that include:

  • Convenience and safety advantages: It eliminates the worry about   hauling a heavy portable unit around, the power cord length, or the possible injury from tripping over cords. Just simply plug the brush unit and hose into a wall inlet instead.
  • Healthier air quality: Collected dust is sent through tubing behind walls to remotely located main unit. No more leaky air bags to worry about!
  • More power: The permanent power units of central vacuum systems have a motor that has more power than that of traditional, portable vacuum cleaners.
  • Increased home value: Installing a central vacuum system in your house increases the value of your home in the event of a sale.
  • Quiet: Because of their remote locations, these larger central vacuum units cause almost no noise pollution in comparison to that of portable vacuum cleaners.

Geothermal Heating & Cooling:

A RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCE RIGHT IN YOUR OWN YARD!

You see a front yard; we see a power plant!
Geothermal Heating captures heat energy stored in the earth and transfers it to your home. Save 30 to 70% on your heating costs and help our planet at the same time!

Geothermal heating transfers heat to your home through underground loops configured to fit your property. To cool your home, the process is simply reversed, sending heat from your home back into the earth.

Economics

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency geo-exchange systems save homeowners 30-70 percent in heating costs and 20-50 percent in cooling costs compared to conventional systems. Geo-exchange systems also save money because they require much less maintenance. In addition to being highly reliable they are built to last for decades and can add considerably the resale value of a structure.

Heat Recovery Venilators (HRVs)

Lifebreath_machine1The Lifebreath Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) is a system that moves the stale warm air from your home and replaces it with clean, fresh air. These HRVs are so efficient that no heat is lost from your home while you use them.

How the system works:
As warm stale air from your home is drawn into the Lifebreath HRV, cool fresh air is drawn into the Lifebreath HRV in exchange.

How does this cool air get warm?
The heat from the indoor air is transferred to the Lifebreath HVCs aluminum core to the fresh air system, warming it. The stale air is pushed out during this process and your home in its entirety is filled with warm, clean, fresh air.

Why should you own a Lifebreath brand Heat Recovery Ventilator?
Not only does it certify for the energy-efficiency code, but it also has many features that many other HRVs do not have. Some of these features include a five-speed fan operation, 4 selectable operational modes, a patented heat exchange core, a built-in dehumidiset, and is easy to clean.
