You turn on the air and your home is cool. You turn on the heat, and your home is warm. Sounds simple enough right? Most of us just don’t consider much more than that when it comes to our HVAC system. As long as it works we’re happy.
But, did you know that there are several upgrades you can make to your system that can make it more energy-efficient, provide you with cleaner indoor air, and save you lots of money? Here are some common upgrades you can make to your system that will do just that.
Install a smart thermostat.
Smart thermostats are the latest, greatest addition you can make to support your HVAC system. They’re programmable, learn your preferences, and make life super easy in every way. You can even adjust them from your phone when you are not home. It’s a great way to save big bucks & be energy efficient at the same time.
Put in a programmable thermostat
Not quite ready to go the way of the smart thermostat? How about a programmable thermostat instead? You can set the temperatures based on when you’re home and when you’re not, and to heat or cool differently when you’re awake and when you’re sleeping. Even better, it all happens without you having to manually change it.
Get yourself an air purification system
Most people don’t realize how dirty their indoor air really is. It’s full of all kinds of icky things like pet dander, dust, dirt, pollen, and other pollutants. A whole-home air purification system will help remove all those nasty things you don’t want in your house and replace them with clean, healthy air.
A zoning system allows you to pinpoint areas of the home that you want to heat or cool. If you, for instance, have a spare bedroom that you rarely use, there’s no need to heat or cool it. The zoning system will allow you to focus your energy consumption in the areas of the home that you use most often by individually controlling the temperature in those specific areas.
Use HEPA filters
HEPA, or High Efficiency Particulate Air filters, trap more contaminants than a standard filter. These filters use a dense mat that can capture up to 99.7 percent of all contaminants which are unhealthy and dirty. You’ll notice much better indoor air quality when using these top-of-the-line filters.
Consider a whole-house humidifier and dehumidifier
Temperature is only part of the home comfort equation. Control over the humidity level in your home plays a huge role as well. Whole house humidifiers and dehumidifiers are the best way to have the humidity levels perfect all year long.
