Your HVAC equipment keeps your home comfortably warm or cool, but when your system is equipped with an HVAC add-on, it can provide more than just basic heating or cooling. The array of HVAC add-ons available today are designed with convenience in mind, and they can help you save energy, boost your indoor air quality and provide better temperature and humidity control for greater comfort. Here are four HVAC add-ons that are worth considering:
High humidity during the cooling season can impact your comfort, energy bills and air quality. and even damage your home’s structure and contents. Having a dehumidifier added to your HVAC system can help keep humidity in check, so it’s easier to keep your home comfortably cool without wasting energy.
If your home is tightly sealed for efficiency and lacks sufficient air exchange, potentially-harmful pollutants and allergens can stay trapped inside and degrade your air quality. An experienced HVAC pro can integrate an air cleaner unit into your comfort system to rid your home of an array of unhealthy contaminants and allergens like chemical vapors, soot, smoke, pet dander, dust mites and mold spores, along with viruses and bacteria.
If you have one centrally-situated thermostat that controls the HVAC system in your large or multiple-story home, it’s virtually impossible to enjoy consistent comfort. A knowledgeable HVAC contractor can create a zoned system with multiple heating and cooling areas to give you greater comfort and energy consumption control. Setting up zoning accomplished by installing motorized duct dampers and dedicated thermostats in each area, and connecting everything to a central control panel for your convenience.
If you still use a basic programmable thermostat, having a new intelligent model installed can give you energy-saving temperature control capabilities plus the ability to adjust/monitor your HVAC remotely. These advanced thermostats also automatically adapt to your comfort habits, manage other system add-ons, and monitor and alert you to any performance, maintenance or repair issues.
