Eco Breeze Review by Conspiracy of Good
US Dept. of Energy
“Ventilation is the least expensive and most energy-efficient way to cool buildings. You can save energy and money when you ventilate your home instead of using your air conditioner, except on the hottest days. Moving air can remove heat from your home. Moving air also creates a wind chill effect that cools your body. Ventilation cooling is usually combined with energy conservation measures like shading provided by trees and window treatments, roof reflectivity (light-colored roof), and attic insulation. Mechanical air circulation can be used with natural ventilation to increase comfort, or with air conditioning for energy savings. Ventilation provides other benefits besides cooling. Indoor air pollutants tend to accumulate in homes with poor ventilation, and when homes are closed up for air conditioning or heating.”
US Environmental Protection Agency
The EPA has released reports about the dangers of our tight construction and the toxins that are captured in the home. The EPA reports that because of toxic chemicals in our homes, indoor air is now 2 to 5 times more toxic than outside air. Indoor air is even more toxic than city air, despite conventional wisdom. The pollutants that cause indoor air toxicity include combustion sources such as oil, gas, kerosene, coal, wood, and tobacco products; building materials and furnishings as diverse as deteriorated, asbestos-containing insulation, wet or damp carpet, and cabinetry or furniture made of certain pressed wood products; products for household cleaning and maintenance, personal care, or hobbies; central heating and cooling systems and humidification devices. Bringing fresh air into your home flushes toxins outside, increasing air quality. The EPA report says “If too little outdoor air enters a home, pollutants can accumulate to levels that can pose health and comfort problems. Unless they are built with special mechanical means of ventilation, homes that are designed and constructed to minimize the amount of outdoor air that can “leak” into and out of the home may have higher pollutant levels than other homes. However, because some weather conditions can drastically reduce the amount of outdoor air that enters a home, pollutants can build up even in homes that are normally considered leaky.”

I bought the Eco Breeze and It’s definitely worth the money. It’s quiet which is good because I hate noisy fans and I like the fresh air. I use the auto feature which has worked perfectly for me. I did have one issue, however, when I was installing the side panels; the slots were a little tight. I just wiggled the side panels and then they slid down okay. Other than that, everything was great and I would positively recommend it.

I use Eco Breeze with AC. My Ac thermostat is set at 78, Eco Breeze at 70, in the morning when I walk by the room with Eco Breeze installed I can feel the temperature drop from the cool air pulled in during the night.

Eco Breeze stands up to its name. A great way to cool your home without having to use stuffy air conditioning and you also save on utilities because the unit uses less energy. Terrific!!
