Air Conditioning

When evaluating an air conditioning system, there are some important considerations to keep in mind:
• Higher efficiency systems will reduce your energy consumption, resulting in lower energy bills.
• Proper equipment sizing is essential to ensure optimal cooling of each specific home layout, while maximizing the useful life of the system.

Some critical factors to determine the size system for your home include:
• Climate
• Humidity
• Size of cooling area
• Number of windows
• Direction of home
• Number of people in home

Indoor Air Quality Systems

East River Energy has various options to improve the air quality and humidification to ensure that your home is a ‘Healthy Home’.

Ultraviolet Air Cleaners
Ultraviolet Air Cleaners replicate the natural outdoor purification system of the sun by destroying the allergy and disease-causing microbes living and multiplying in indoor-air. One of the most effective air purifiers has been found in natural sunlight. Scientists have proven that there is an invisible ‘C’ band ultraviolet ray that is part of the sun’s light spectrum. An Ultraviolet Air Cleaner is the most effective way to reduce airborne bacteria. Sneezing, wheezing, coughing…. Your indoor air quality is important!

High Efficiency Air Cleaners
We spend 90% of our lives indoors, where the air quality is 25 times more polluted than the air outdoors. We have several effective and affordable solutions to remove allergens, dust, and cold and flu germs so that you and your family can breathe clean air.

Aprilaire Humidifiers
The air inside your home is drier than you think. Now, with an Aprilaire Humidifier you can cure indoor dryness and get the very best whole-home comfort simply, and save money on energy bills. Dry air absorbs moisture from your skin, making you feel colder, which means you turn the thermostat up for warmth. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reports that you can save up to 4% on your heating bill for every degree you lower your thermostat. Proper humidity is healthier, more comfortable and will protect everything in your home from cracking and shrinking; including furnishings, walls, floors and musical instruments. Aprilaire also has minimal maintenance, continuous automatic control, uses 100% of the water that enters it and uses virtually no electricity to operate.

“There is as yet no cure for the common cold. The most important preventative measure would appear to be the proper regulation of humidity.”

-New York State Journal of Medicine

You can select from Aprilaire’s Automatic Humidifier, High Efficiency Air Cleaners, Fresh air Exchangers and Zone Control Systems for your total indoor air comfort.

Our Indoor Comfort Specialists will assist you in selecting the proper equipment for your ‘Total Home Comfort’.

Heat Pumps

We install Heat Pumps.

Heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners for all climates. Like your refrigerator, heat pumps use electricity to transfer heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house. During the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your house into the outdoors. Because they transfer heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can efficiently provide comfortable temperatures for your home.

Smoke Alarms and CO Detectors

East River Energy would like to remind residents of the importance of installing and maintaining smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms in the home.

While there are many different brands of smoke alarms for sale, they are of two basic types: ionization or photoelectric. Ionization alarms sound more quickly when a flaming, fast-moving fire occurs. Photoelectric alarms are quicker at sensing smoldering, smoky fires. Some units on the market combine both technologies and are called dual sensor smoke alarms.

Smoke alarms can be purchased locally at a variety of stores. Some are intended to be "hard wired" into the electrical system in the house (a qualified electrician should do this work). Some units are battery powered, requiring only a screwdriver for installation. The manufacturer's instructions for installation should be followed carefully. Smoke alarms should be tested monthly, and if they have batteries, those should be replaced annually.

Smoke alarms should be located on every level of your home, including the basement. For extra safety you may want to install alarms both inside and outside of sleeping areas.

Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless and tasteless toxic gas that comes from gas-fired appliances, charcoal grills, wood-burning stoves and fireplaces, space heaters and cars.

The initial symptoms of CO poisoning are similar to the "flu" but without the usual fever. They include headache, fatigue, shortness of breath, nausea and dizziness. A victim's skin may appear red in color. Because it cannot be smelled, seen or tasted, it can kill people before they know it is present in their dwelling.

It is recommended that a CO alarm with an audible warning signal be installed near the sleeping areas of your home and outside of individual bedrooms. Buy an alarm that has been tested by a nationally recognized testing lab such as Underwriters' Laboratories (UL). Follow the manufactures instructions for installation and testing.

A few simple precautions can also reduce the chance of accidental exposure to CO:

  • Have a qualified professional check all fuel-burning appliances, furnaces, chimneys and venting systems in your home at least once a year.
  • Never use your oven or range to heat you home, and never use a charcoal grill or hibachi inside your house or garage.
  • Never keep a car running in your garage, even with the garage doors open.
  • If your running a portable generator it should be OUTSIDE away from the house to prevent CO from entering your residence.
