Indoor air quality systems are now required to include temperature control, humidity control, filtration and ventilation; making this generation of heating and cooling systems the most effective yet. New systems use up to 50% less energy. Regardless of the age of your system, or if you currently use portables, updating to whole-home solutions will save you time, trouble and energy costs while providing a cleaner, healthier home.
Keep your home’s air fresh and healthy with dehumidifiers and air cleaners.
The wrong balance of humidity can make a big difference. Not enough will cause sore throats, dry skin and sinus irritation; damage furniture and wood floors; and can make you feel cold. Too much humidity can make you feel clammy, sweaty or sticky; can increase allergens; and may cause wood to warp.
Keep humidity at bay with these tips:
- Run your bathroom fan during and after showering
- Run your heating and cooling system blower to reduce condensation on windows
- Use oven hood fans when boiling, poaching or baking foods
- Install whole-home equipment instead of portable units
The EPA reports that indoor air quality can be 100 times worse than outside air. Airborne pollutants may include anything from dust and pollen to vapors from appliances to perfumes or pet dander, and more.
Keep your air clean with these tips:
- Store volatile chemicals and cleaning products outside the home.
- Keep pet beds and litter boxes away from heating and cooling system vents
- Run your heating or cooling system blower when vacuuming
- Keep vents unobstructed to keep airborne particulates from settling
- Change your furnace filter according to the manufacturer's recommendations
- Install whole-home filtration solutions to remove impurities
- Install ventilation control products that replace stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air.
Heating and cooling costs are the #1 expense in most American homes. In most homes, a single thermostat tries to keep an entire home comfortable. But with multiple floors and rooms of various sizes, that's virtually impossible. Install a zoned comfort control system and programmable thermostat to increase savings and comfort. Keep your system running at optimum efficiency by signing up for a maintenance agreement to periodically inspect.
