Many ignore indoor air quality however according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the air inside the average home is up to five times more polluted than the air outside. Results from in-home air tests across North America support this government finding. Nearly every home (96%) had at least one indoor air quality problem:
Odors and Chemical Vapors
Perfumes, cleaning supplies, paints, pet odors, cooking fumes and other airborne contaminants
Small, Respirable Particles and Bio aerosols/Micro-organisms
Pollen, dirt, pet dander, dust mites, bacteria, viruses and mold
Air-purification systems attached to the furnace or air handler, where contaminants are removed and destroyed before air is recirculated into the home.
Small, Respirable Particles and Bio aerosols/Micro-organisms
Pollen, dirt, pet dander, dust mites, bacteria, viruses and mold
Solution: Air filtration systems combat indoor pollution by capturing even the smallest contaminants and keeping them from recirculating back into the home's air.
HUMIDITY CONTROL: Too Much Moisture
Can make the air feel stuffy and warmer than the actual temperature, and can also promote the growth of mold, mildew, fungi, bacteria and viruses
Too Little Moisture
Can cause dry skin, sore throats and respiratory problems, along with annoying static electricity
Solution: Dehumidifiers and humidifiers work with the home's heating and cooling system to keep moisture levels balanced in every room.
VENTILATION: Poor Airflow
A common problem in newer homes, which are tightly sealed to conserve energy. Instead of continually moving, indoor air becomes stagnant, and contaminants have no way to escape
Solution: Ventilation systems replace stale, contaminated indoor air with outdoor air providing the fresh-air feel of an open window, with virtually no heat/energy loss or safety risk.
ELIMINATION: Small, Respirable Bio aerosols/Micro-organisms
Pet dander, dust mites, bacteria, viruses, mold and other contaminants that can collect on the air-conditioning coil, reducing system efficiency, and circulate through the home
Solution: Germicidal lights dramatically reduce concentrations of potentially harmful micro-organisms.

The top lies we hear about Solar Energy Production in Kentucky are as follows:
1.) Solar Power Does Not Work False, many of our Solar Customers produce enough electricity to eliminate their power bill.
2.) Solar Power Only Works on Blue Sky days; false, as long as the sun rises and the world keeps spinning, our solar panels will produce energy whether it is winter or summer. Peak Production days are on Blue Sky days, but our panels produce energy daily.
3.) Solar Power is not affordable
False, with the Federal Tax Credit incentive and our competitive pricing model, the average pay back is 48 to 60 months depending upon your home’s energy consumption. The average cost of Solar is often less than a new side by side ATV.
Our customers who choose to go solar are often very happy with their results and we have many references whom you can contact. We have a couple of references who will allow on-site visits to tour their solar production facilities.
We have attached an image of a current power production from 12/5/19 from one of our recent Solar Panel systems. This customer consistently produced 11,500 watts of power during the day on that day. Remember that the month of December has the shortest and least amount of sun-light hours per day of the entire year. This customer will enjoy even larger amounts of power production during the longer, sunnier days of summer.

Eastern Air Flow of Kentucky has installed geothermal heat pumps in all areas of Kentucky. Our geothermal heat pumps are available for installation across Kentucky including Pikeville, Paintsville, Louisa, Ashland, Prestonsburg, Lexington, Richmond, and surrounding cities. Contact us for your free geothermal consultation at (606) 949-1114.
Geothermal heat pumps (GHPs), sometimes referred to as GeoExchange, earth-coupled, ground-source, or water-source heat pumps, have been in use since the late 1940s. They use the constant temperature of the earth as the exchange medium instead of the outside air temperature.
Although many parts of the country experience seasonal temperature extremes -- from scorching heat in the summer to sub-zero cold in the winter—a few feet below the earth's surface the ground remains at a relatively constant temperature. Depending on latitude, ground temperatures range from 45°F (7°C) to 75°F (21°C). Like a cave, this ground temperature is warmer than the air above it during the winter and cooler than the air in the summer. The GHP takes advantage of this by exchanging heat with the earth through a ground heat exchanger.
As with any heat pump, geothermal and water-source heat pumps are able to heat, cool, and, if so equipped, supply the house with hot water. Some models of geothermal systems are available with two-speed compressors and variable fans for more comfort and energy savings. Relative to air-source heat pumps, they are quieter, last longer, need little maintenance, and do not depend on the temperature of the outside air.
A dual-source heat pump combines an air-source heat pump with a geothermal heat pump. These appliances combine the best of both systems. Dual-source heat pumps have higher efficiency ratings than air-source units, but are not as efficient as geothermal units. The main advantage of dual-source systems is that they cost much less to install than a single geothermal unit, and work almost as well.
Even though the installation price of a geothermal system can be several times that of an air-source system of the same heating and cooling capacity, the additional costs are returned to you in energy savings in 5 to 10 years. System life is estimated at 12-15 years for the inside components and 50+ years for the ground loop. There are approximately 50,000 geothermal heat pumps installed in the United States each year. For more information, visit the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association.
There are four basic types of ground loop systems. Three of these -- horizontal, vertical, and pond/lake -- are closed-loop systems. The fourth type of system is the open-loop option. Which one of these is best depends on the climate, soil conditions, available land, and local installation costs at the site. All of these approaches can be used for residential and commercial building applications.
Closed-Loop Systems: Most closed-loop geothermal heat pumps circulate an antifreeze solution through a closed loop -- usually made of plastic tubing -- that is buried in the ground or submerged in water. A heat exchanger transfers heat between the refrigerant in the heat pump and the antifreeze solution in the closed loop. The loop can be in a horizontal, vertical, or pond/lake configuration.
One variant of this approach, called direct exchange, does not use a heat exchanger and instead pumps the refrigerant through copper tubing that is buried in the ground in a horizontal or vertical configuration. Direct exchange systems require a larger compressor and work best in moist soils (sometimes requiring additional irrigation to keep the soil moist), but you should avoid installing in soils corrosive to the copper tubing. Because these systems circulate refrigerant through the ground, local environmental regulations may prohibit their use in some locations.
Horizontal: This type of installation is generally most cost-effective for residential installations, particularly for new construction where sufficient land is available. It requires trenches at least four feet deep. The most common layouts either use two pipes, one buried at six feet, and the other at four feet, or two pipes placed side-by-side at five feet in the ground in a two-foot wide trench. The Slinky™ method of looping pipe allows more pipe in a shorter trench, which cuts down on installation costs and makes horizontal installation possible in areas it would not be with conventional horizontal applications.
Vertical: Large commercial buildings and schools often use vertical systems because the land area required for horizontal loops would be prohibitive. Vertical loops are also used where the soil is too shallow for trenching, and they minimize the disturbance to existing landscaping. For a vertical system, holes (approximately four inches in diameter) are drilled about 20 feet apart and 100 to 400 feet deep. Into these holes go two pipes that are connected at the bottom with a U-bend to form a loop. The vertical loops are connected with horizontal pipe (i.e., manifold), placed in trenches, and connected to the heat pump in the building.
Pond/Lake: If the site has an adequate water body, this may be the lowest cost option. A supply line pipe is run underground from the building to the water and coiled into circles at least eight feet under the surface to prevent freezing. The coils should only be placed in a water source that meets minimum volume, depth, and quality criteria.
Open-Loop System: This type of system uses well or surface body water as the heat exchange fluid that circulates directly through the GHP system. Once it has circulated through the system, the water returns to the ground through the well, a recharge well, or surface discharge. This option is obviously practical only where there is an adequate supply of relatively clean water, and all local codes and regulations regarding groundwater discharge are met.
Hybrid Systems: Hybrid systems using several different geothermal resources, or a combination of a geothermal resource with outdoor air (i.e., a cooling tower), are another technology option. Hybrid approaches are particularly effective where cooling needs are significantly larger than heating needs. Where local geology permits, the "standing column well" is another option. In this variation of an open-loop system, one or more deep vertical wells is drilled. Water is drawn from the bottom of a standing column and returned to the top. During periods of peak heating and cooling, the system can bleed a portion of the return water rather than reinjecting it all, causing water inflow to the column from the surrounding aquifer. The bleed cycle cools the column during heat rejection, heats it during heat extraction, and reduces the required bore depth.
Our geothermal heat pump systems are available for installation across all of Kentucky!
So many of our customers across Lexington, Louisville, Richmond, Winchester, Georgetown, Pikeville, Prestonsburg, Pikeville, Paintsville, Louisa, and Ashland believe that an electricity bill of $400 to $500 is normal during the fall and winter months; The truth is however, that your winter electricity bill should never be more than $250.00 or so in the average sized house during the fall and winter months. If your homes heat pump system is older than 10 years old, you should make sure to have it maintained before winter so that it can be working at its optimum efficiency and capacity. If your system is much older than 12 years old, you should begin considering replacing it. New high efficiency heat pump systems can save you thousands of dollars in energy costs every year, paying for itself in no time at all.
