Saving energy in the household
Opening the windows doesn't change the air and wastes energy.
Do you want clean air in your home without spending too much?
Aircare is the perfect appliance to make you feel healthy and well
and keep energy consumption down- it boosts comfort but not your power bills.
You save energy upstream not downstream
Often, we don't give much thought to energy costs, they seem to escape our control but they can be resolved a lot more easily than we think.
People tend to keep doing the same things automatically, sometimes for no real reason. If it's stuffy inside, we open the windows; if excessive humidity causes mould to grow on the walls, we call a builder to fix it and we take painkillers for our aches and pains.
These behaviours are deeply rooted and they made sense when we didn't have the technologies that are available now: they fix the problems downstream whereas the best solutions are upstream.
This is now obsolete: you don't get a change of clean air and you waste a lot of energy (about +25%) because you let in cold air in winter (so the heating system has to work harder to raise the temperature) and you let in hot air in summer (so the air-conditioner has to work harder to lower the temperature).
HUMIDITY AND MOULD
Normal household activities generate steam and moisture: when the relative humidity increases, in some cases condensation can form on the walls, particularly when it's cold outside. Condensation or an excessive increase in relative humidity inside fosters the growth of mould.
Mould is a fungus that frees its spores in closed environments, helping to cause allergies and irritating the respiratory tract. Fixing the walls can solve the effect but not the cause of the underlying problem: inadequate ventilation.
IMPACT OF INDOOR POLLUTION ON PUBLIC HEALTH
By way of example, considering only bronchial asthma in children and adolescents attributable to exposure to indoor allergens like mites, mould and pet dander, the Indoor Commission established by the Italian Ministry of Health to develop technical guidelines to reduce health risks related to indoor pollution reported an impact on public health of more than 160,000 prevalent cases per year, with direct costs of more than EUR 8,000,000. This is not considering the indirect costs relating to lost school and work days, which for this particular health issue amount to about 60 % of the total costs.
DO YOUR SUMS AND SAVE WITH AIRCARE
You already know how much it costs to address mould, condensation and humidity.
Here is how you can bring those costs down:
- fixing interior walls
- repainting damaged walls with special coatings
Keeping your wallet closed
- reducing heating costs
- reducing air-conditioning/cooling costs
- reducing power bills
Staying in good health
- medical care
- clinical tests
- therapies and medicines
to cure all the ailments caused by breathing unhealthy air (allergies, asthma and respiratory complaints)

Saving is good but profit is better
The new frontier of saving energy is making a profit. Saving energy is good, making money is even better. With Aircare ES you can save much more than you consume.
For a 100 m2 apartment, considering an average methane gas supply:
- if located in a temperate climate
you'll save about 323 €/year
- if located in a cold climate
you'll save about 673 €/year
[Values estimated on the basis of the calculation methods under Direttiva EC 1254/2014]
All the Aircare options generate more saving than consumption: energy waste is minimised- comfort and wellbeing is maximised.
