How to Increase Home Comfort
Since you spend a majority of your time inside your house, it is important to keep your home environment comfortable. One of the best ways to increase home comfort is by upgrading your HVAC equipment. A system that is more efficient can help you maintain a comfortable home environment no matter the season.
Controlling Home Air Quality
There are many ways that you can control the air quality in your home in order to increase your home comfort. Use these tips to make your home environment more comfortable year-round:
Upgrade your thermostat.
Use a programmable or smart thermostat to help maintain comfortable temperatures throughout the day. A programmable thermostat allows you to automatically adjust home temperatures using a pre-set schedule. You can turn the temperature up when you are not home to save energy, and program the thermostat to reset to a comfortable temperature right before you arrive home.
A smart thermostat allows you to monitor and adjust temperatures, humidity levels, and other HVAC settings right from your smartphone. It helps you save energy by allowing you to increase the temperature when you are not home. At the same time, you can make sure that your home environment is always comfortable when you arrive by adjusting the climate settings before you head home.
Make your ventilation system smart.
In addition to smart thermostats, you can also install a smart ventilation system that allows you to have more control over cool and heat settings throughout the home. The sensors on the vent allow you to monitor and control airflow while regulating your home’s temperature in each room. This is a great HVAC upgrade for homes that tend to have unbalanced temperatures in various rooms like a kitchen space that is always hotter due to large windows or skylights.
This smart system can also help you save energy and cut down electricity costs by running your system more efficiently. Smart vents help you automatically adjust temperatures in rooms with hot or cold spots and distribute less air flow to rooms that mostly go unused throughout the day. Just like the smart thermostat, you can control this system conveniently from your smartphone.
Add air quality equipment to your HVAC system.
Dehumidifiers, humidifiers, and air purifiers can all help you create a more comfortable home environment by enhancing your air quality. Dehumidifiers work well in humid climates as they help prevent moisture which can be a breeding ground for mold and also cause breathing difficulties. Humidifiers help add more humidity to the air for drier climates, making it easier for you and your family to breathe easy and avoid dry skin and other health issues caused by a dry climate.
An air purifier helps add an extra layer of protection for family members who suffer from severe allergies or asthma. The purifier traps allergens, pollutants, and other harmful substances that can trigger allergy symptoms, asthma attacks, and other respiratory problems. These add-ons are available as a stand-alone unit which works for one room or a whole-house system which allows you to reduce allergens and pollutants throughout your home.
