We spend a lot of time in our homes, so understandably, we want to be comfortable there. While a cushy couch, your favorite flick and a bowl of popcorn will ensure you enjoy a Friday evening in, let’s talk full-time comfort. Your HVAC system does play a critical role in how well you fare in your home, day or night, by providing you with tempered air, but did you know that you can improve your HVAC system to enhance comfort even more? We’ll detail three things you can do to ensure your house feels perfect.
Increased humidity in the home can result in a number of issues including decreased productivity, poor sleep and an increased possibility of getting sick. Excessive humidity can even cause high energy bills. By installing a whole-home dehumidifier you can remedy all of these potential issues and benefit from a number of other long-term benefits, including heightened in-home comfort and improved air quality. Not to mention, a dehumidifier can extend the life of certain materials inside your home, thus preventing warped walls or flooring!
Having an indoor air quality test performed is a great way to detect numerous issues that are common in many homes. This test can detect issues with your current heating and cooling system and check levels of humidity, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, as well as allergens and the general cleanliness of the air you breathe in your house. Upon completion of the test the HVAC technician will be able to provide recommendations for improving air quality and lowering your utility bills, all while giving you peace of mind.
One of the items a technician may recommend, but is suitable and suggested for any household, is an air filtration system. Air quality devices can reduce contamination in the air, thus removing allergens, molds, bacteria, viruses, dust and other yucky stuff. There are numerous types of air cleaners and filtration systems, so be sure to work with a qualified HVAC company to figure out which is right for your home.
