What My Customers are Saying.....
On behalf of our family, I want to personally thank you and your company for our system and our life. Let me explain the circumstance. We started having issues with our furnace in our forced air heating system. The furnace could not keep heat in the house and kept shutting off. We called an HVAC company to come out to do a service call to find out what was wrong with the furnace. After doing a full diagnostics on the furnace they discovered that there were holes in the heat exchanger and with the sniffer discovered that it was leaking carbon monoxide. Mind you it did not click that my wife kept on having headaches and I was suffering from fatigue both of which are signs and symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning. I truly believe that the air filtration system that Healthy Homes Alaska installed over five years ago is the only reason reason that I am able to send this email. My wife and I initially had the system installed to combat my asthma to which I've only had 3 attacks in 5 years and never in the home, but now I can honestly say the system is truly a lifesaver. For any potential customer I'd say the results definitely outweigh the cost of the system bringing to mind what is the lives of your family worth as a truly grateful customer I'd tell you had I known 5 years ago that I would owe my life to the system I would have paid twice the price.
In December 2005 I bought a very nice 1983 home built on Baxter Bog, though I was new to Anchorage and was unaware of this. Before the moving boxes were even unpacked I began to cough, and the cough worsened until I could no longer maintain a conversation, talk on the phone or attend public events, especially quiet ones like church or the movies.
No medical treatment was effective. Essentially, my life apart from work ended from 2005 to 2013, when thanks to the Alaska Craftsman Home Program I became aware that my pleasant home had major insulation and ventilation problems. The home was pulling mold, spores and bacteria-laden air through the damp crawl space, up through the rooms and out the roof and joists. An energy loss evaluation (Alaska Housing Financing Corporation) also found that it was leaking nine times the heat it should have been.
An excellent insulation contractor sealed the leaks -- half the solution -- followed by Pete Klebes of Healthy Homes Alaska, who reversed the earlier air flow to bring in clean, fresh air from outside and force it down and out through the crawl space.
The day Pete finished was the day I stopped coughing, and that was one of the happiest days of my life.
I now have resumed the everyday life that everyone takes for granted until they can't do it anymore, and moved after eight years on hold into broader usefulness and productivity again.
Not a day passes that I do not thank Pete in my heart.
I am so glad I found your product, the EZ Breathe machine. I have been fighting polluted air in my home for some time & am surprised how simple the solution turned out to be. You did a great job checking my house helping me to understand how the EZ Breathe would change the air quality & circulation throughout the home. You were prompt with the installation & here at the time you had scheduled, no delays.
I was amazed that within 30mins. of your departure, I was breathing better. Thank you so much for providing the product that allows me to once again take a deep breath in my own home. I also believe it has cut down on the overall dust which is an unexpected bonus.
Thanks again. I do not hesitate to recommend you & the EZ Breathe to anyone, including my family.

It has been several weeks since our system was installed in the basement. We have noticed a marked improvement in the quality of air in our whole house. We were especially concerned about our food room which we keep closed off and sealed with a floor sweep to keep it as cool as possible. The EZ Breathe ventilation system is able to pull enough air around the door to get rid of the musty smell.
I did an Internet search trying to compare different systems and couldn’t find anything that worked the same way. Our other option, presented to us in an energy efficiency class, was either a far more expensive heat exchange system that our house wasn’t set up for, or an upstairs bathroom fan that could exhaust air on a continuing basis. The problem with the upstairs fan is that it removes the warmest air off the top and replaces it with cool air drawn in from lower levels (speeding up the “Stack Effect”), causing your furnace to work harder trying to replace the cool air. The EZ Breathe system exhausts the coldest air while drawing down the warmer air, allowing circulation and more energy efficiency. The improved efficiency will more than compensate for the cost of running a low wattage EZ Breathe system.
In conclusion, the installation service given to us by Pete was very professional while being personable and adaptable to our time-frame (we kept putting him off while I worked on the room it was to be installed in). Pete was very helpful and patient in answering our many technical and non-technical questions.
I am giving Pete Klebes my phone number to act as a reference for anyone interested.
Thanks again, Pete
