Maintaining Great Indoor Air Quality

December 3rd, 2018

UV-liightIf you think that the air in your home is of a higher quality than the air outside by default, it isn’t. We all know that there is some pollution in the air outside, but few homeowners understand that the air quality indoors is often lower than that outside. Fewer realize that this is often the case by a significant margin! Remember, modern homes tend to be sealed up very tightly. That’s great for energy efficiency, but not so much for indoor air quality.

Fortunately for you, the IAQ professionals on our team are never more than a phone call away. Environment Masters, Inc. is here to find the right air filtration and/or purification systems for your needs. Don’t count on the standard air filter in your whole-house heating or air conditioning system to do the job. Those filters are of relatively low efficiency ratings and are really there to protect the HVAC system itself, not the air quality throughout the home.

Upgrade your home for the holidays and get 12 months same as cash financing.

Environment Masters is offering this special financing during the months of

November and December 2018 for either a Chief Whole-home water filtration system OR a tankless water heater.

CHIEF WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM

With a Chief whole house water filtration system the difference is clear.

A Chief system:

  • Removes up to 99% of water-soluble lead, mercury, nickel, chromium and other dissolved metals
  • Removes chlorine, chemicals and organic pesticides
  • Controls the buildup of bacteria, algae, fungi and scale
  • Reduces corrosion of plumbing and fixtures
  • Reduces build-up of sludge in hot water tanks
  • Permanent installation: No filters to replace and no chemicals to add
  • No more discolored water
  • Washing machine washes with clean, clear water
  • Plants grow better
  • Juice concentrates, coffee and tea taste better
  • No more rust ring around the bathtub and lavatory

 

UNFILTERED VS CHIEF FILTERED DISHWASHER WATER

Now you can drink, shower and wash in clean, chemical-free, and odor-free comfort. Whole house filtration is better for your health and better for your house, helping your appliances last longer.

And a Chief system doesn’t need a replacement filter – all you need is a garden hose to clean your system periodically.  Easy-care, no-filter maintenance is simple to do yourself, or you can choose an Environment Masters’ annual service contract.

 

PERMANENT INSTALLATION UNDER GROUND – EASY ACCESS WITH A METER COVER

SEE THE DIFFERENCE:

UNFILTERED BUCKET: City water that is running through your home. You’re bathing in it, washing your clothes in it, and cooking with it. (actual Jackson municipal water)

FILTERED BUCKET: Same city water after Chief Water Purification.

*The Chief system cannot be installed with galvanized pipe.

TANKLESS WATER HEATER

Slash energy costs and have endless hot water with a tankless water heater.

Take a bath, wash dishes, & do laundry all at the same time! Why keep 40+ gallons of water hot when you don’t need it? Save energy costs and never run out of hot water. Plus you’ll qualify for an energy rebate from your utility company. (Atmos & CenterPoint customers)

Endless hot water. Regardless of simultaneous usage – washing machine, dishwasher, multiple showers – you’re assured of immediate and endless hot water.

 

 

Significant Energy Savings. Heat water only as you need it. Why keep heating and reheating a huge tank of hot water that still limits supply?

 

Space Savings. The tankless system’s compact design (approximately the size of a carry-on suitcase) means flexibility and space savings in installation.

 

Increased Home Value. Up-to-date technology and an improved Home Energy Rating System (HERS) index score make your home more livable, more valuable.

 

Longer life, no tank leakage! The tankless design means longer life, thanks to component parts that make updates simple with no new system is required. While upfront costs are slightly higher for a tankless system, your return on investment shows it’s a wise purchase.
