In general, we measure an air filter’s efficiency by its ability to capture particles from the air. But, to qualify as HEPA certified, air filters must first conform to the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) standards.
Doe.gov defines HEPA filter as a throwaway, dry type filter in a rigid casing or enclosure. The device must exhibit an efficiency of at least 99.97% when tested with an aerosol of 0.3-micrometer diameter.
Many brands nowadays are using the word “HEPA” and “true HEPA” in the packaging of their products. Because of this, many homeowners end up believing that all types of air…
While smart meters are becoming more common in the energy sector, it is still new in the water industry. But, modern water meters are useful in many ways. In general, they reduce costs and help to track and manage people’s water consumption.
In this post, Morconnect will talk about the technology, its benefits, and how it can save the future.
As most of us may know, water meters are devices that measure the flow of water in a household or building. With that in mind, combine it with the concept of smart technology.
According to the United Nations, around two billion people experience water stress. Besides, a third of the world’s biggest underground water systems are also now in distress. Because of this, water utility companies should start exploring the use of smart technology.
HVAC expert, Morconnect, explains that smart technology offers a lot of benefits. In general, it enhances efficiency, increases revenue, and improves customer service.
In the water sector, some of the latest smart systems and devices are the following:
– Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI)
– Smart Meters and Smart Valves
Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is a system that allows faster…
A sudden spike in your water bill is a clear indicator that there may be some issues in your plumbing system. Yes, opening your water bill is not something you look forward to but, it should be predictable.
In this article, HVAC expert, Morconnect, will talk about water flow meters, and how to know if you have a faulty one.
How to check if you have a faulty water meter?
Water plays a vital role in our everyday lives. It is a necessity that we cannot live without.
Water is a limited resource, so it is very important for us to be more conscious and smart about its consumption. This is also one of the main reasons why smart water meters are now getting into the scene. In general, these devices help with better water management to help you save more on water bills.
In this post, Morconnect will explain the pros and cons of using a smart water meter at home.

Insulation controls the heat that is going in and out of your house. It keeps you warm and cozy but you may notice that some parts of it always fall off or get stuck in your air vents.
Morconnect explains that there is insulation in your air vents for a couple of reasons. It can be because of faulty insulation, material wear, and tear, or pest infestation. Causes may vary from environmental and mechanical factors.
HEPA filters often come with a hefty price tag.
But, since we live in a world full of all kinds of air pollutants, investing in a high-grade HEPA filtration system is a smart choice. In fact, it is an effective way to improve the quality of the air we breathe, and at the same time, protect our health.
Morconnect explains that HEPA (filter) stands for “high-efficiency particulate air”. They are mechanical filters that remove about 99.97% of airborne particles with a size of at least 0.3 microns. Filters with the HEPA standard must meet certain levels of efficiency. In the…
Attic insulation is very useful in all kinds of climates. During summer, it blocks the heat from getting into your home. This means that you will have to spend less money on air conditioning. Meanwhile, during winter, it prevents ice damming from happening.
Ice damming is the buildup of ice that occurs on roof edges and gutters during wintertime. This happens when the heat from your attic and the sun melts the snow deposit on your roof. As the melted snow drips to roof edges and gutters, it freezes once again. This can cause significant damage to your roof, attic…
Air purifiers, in general, are very effective in getting rid of pollutants, allergens, and other harmful particles that linger in the air.
Air purifiers come in all sorts of shapes, colors, and sizes but all of them share the same goal of providing users with cleaner and fresher air.

Ontario based HVAC company, Morconnect, explains that using air purifiers at home comes with a lot of benefits.
A typical Canadian household consumes about 11,135 kWh of electricity per year according to Energyrates.ca. In Ontario, the figure is just slightly lower at an average of 9,500 kWh of electricity usage per household each year.
HVAC expert, Morconnect, explains that a significant percentage of the energy consumption of Canadian households goes to heating and cooling their homes.
This is one of the main reasons why many homeowners are looking for ways on how to reduce their heating and cooling costs.
