Upgrade Your Heating System

How do you know when it’s time to consider upgrading to a new heating system? Obviously if the unit has died or is not working, but it may be wise to consider replacement well before that happens or before costly repairs add up. Many things can greatly affect the longevity and efficiency of your furnace, heat pump or boiler system over the years such as not changing the air filters often enough or not having regular maintenance to ensure proper operation. Additionally, a poorly operating heating unit can negatively impact the air quality in your home.

Healthy HVAC Add Ons

Consider an HVAC Add On for greatly improved health and comfort benefits. Make sure your home is safe, healthy and comfortable easily and affordably with these whole home HVAC Add on technologies. Air in your home becomes continually contaminated by dirt, germs, debris, odors. Healthy, clean air in your home is healthier and more comfortable for you and is achievable.

Inverter Technology

Inverter HVAC systems offer many benefits to homeowners such as:
Higher Efficiency
Greater Energy Savings
More Uniform temperatures in your home
Quieter operation
This latest HVAC technology has been developing over the past several years and has been utilized in Ductless Mini Split applications. Now offered by many manufacturers for whole home ducted systems as a means to improve performance and efficiency.

Coil Care

Coil care for your HVAC system is very important. A coil is a main component of your HVAC System. There is a condenser coil and an evaporator coil. These coils are an integral part of the heat exchange that happens when cooling your air. These coils contain your refrigerant. Many older systems used Freon (R22) while more recent systems use Puron (R410a).

Attic Ventilation Fans

The benefits of an attic ventilation fan are more cumulative rather than instantaneous. An attic fan operates as an exhaust and will work to push hot air out of the attic through a shuttered or louvered vent. As heat continually rises, the attic fan will help eliminate accumulating heat.
As the heat is evacuated, moisture and odors can also be reduced.

Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats have entered our world and are designed to work and integrate into our smart homes with smart devices. These thermostats can be controlled locally or remotely with smartphones, computers, smart systems like Google or Alexa. Those that love automation will love these features. Some models also will “learn” your needs and can make adjustments on their own.

Odors and Allergens

Many things cause odors and allergens in your home. We generally differentiate between odors and scents. Both refer to things we “smell”. Odors generally refer to smells which we find objectionable, while scents we find pleasurable. There are organic odors and inorganic odors. Both organic and inorganic odors come from molecules which become airborne and allow us to interact with them.
Allergens we cannot see or smell, but they can cause significant health issues especially if you have allergies.

How HVAC System Manages Airflow

Your HVAC System is a system that manages airflow in your home. To simplify the operation, the system takes in air, warms or cools it and then redistributes it around your home to maintain the desired temperature. Of course, there is much more to it. As the air is brought into the system, it is filtered to remove contaminants and debris.
Residential HVAC systems require unobstructed airflow in order to operate properly.

Ductless, Mini Split AC

Ductless Air Conditioning systems are well worth considering in certain circumstances. Central Air systems operate by sending air through ductwork. The ducts are installed to direct the flow of air through tubes called ducts.

Plants Improve Indoor Air Quality

Believe it or not, house plants can help improve the air quality in your home. Plants have a natural ability to purify our air. Their process of photosynthesis enables them to absorb light, and gasses such as carbon dioxide and use them to fuel their growth. As a bi-product they produce oxygen.

Indoor Air Purification

The Reme-Halo air purification system is a new warrior in the fight against contaminants in your home. This device is a “Whole Home” purification system. It is installed right in your HVAC duct system, and kills bacteria and viruses in the air as well as on surfaces. It also combats allergens, smoke, odors and VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) in homes and businesses.

HVAC Air Filters

The importance of changing your HVAC system’s air filters regularly cannot be over stated. It is a crucial aspect of your HVAC system running at it’s peak efficiency. It is also critical in filtering out potentially dangerous allergens, bacteria, dirt, debris from the air you breathe.

Ominous Dangers of Space Heaters

The dangers of using space heaters should not be underestimated. Using electric space (portable) heaters can be a viable option for heating your home or room in an emergency or short term situation, but there are many dangers to be aware of.

Choosing the Best Air Filter for Your Home

Replacing your air filter is one of the small things you can do that can greatly affect the quality of air inside your home. Since many illnesses are associated with airborne contaminants, indoor air quality is a very important consideration.

Harmful Contaminants

Harmful Bacteria and Viruses which can cause and spread illnesses can be in the air you breathe and on surfaces you touch in your home. This is often how the illnesses spread. Four common bacteria found in homes:

Bacteria Bacillus

  • Bacillus- Some species of Bacillus can cause food poisoning.
  • Staphylococci- Some species can cause infections and one virulent strain is responsible for MRSA.
  • Micrococcus- Relatively harmless, but can cause certain foods to spoil.
  • Pseudomonas- Generally do not cause harm to healthy individual, but can cause harm to this who are immuno-compromised.

Bacteria live all around us and even on us. They can be airborne or on any exposed surface. Most of these bacteria are harmless and do not cause health issues, but there are some that do cause illnesses or can aggravate existing conditions.

Viruses can cause mild to serious illnesses from the common cold to very severe sickness. Some are airborne and on surfaces you touch. These viruses include:

RhinoVirus

  • Rhinovirus
  • Rotovirus
  • Influenza

 

Airborne Allergens

Allergens generally affect some people more than others depending on their sensitivity to the allergen. The most common airborne allergies come from:

Mold Spores

  • Pollen (Plant produced)
  • Mold Spores
  • Smoke
  • Dust
  • Pet Dander

 

These contaminants can make most people uncomfortable, have difficulty breathing and for some severe allergic reactions. Whole Home Air Purifiers can be the right answer for you.

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

Volatile Organic Compounds are carbon based chemicals which vaporize (high vapor pressure) and thus become airborne. Some of these chemicals are naturally produced from plants, animals and people. Naturally occurring biological VOCs we recognize as odors. Many biological VOCs are innocuous and cause no harm, but some can become harmful though are rarely toxic. They can be cleansed however, with a whole home Air Purifier.

Other VOCs are caused by man made substances and can be more harmful. These are things such as cigarette smoking, aerosols, paint coatings, solvents, etc.

VOCs

Dangerous VOCs are compounds such as:

  • Benzene- which is produced by smoking and is a known carcinogen.
  • Chlorofluorocarbons- produced by refrigerants such as R22 Freon and can emanate from leaks in HVAC systems older than 2010.
  • Methylene Chloride- produced by aerosol spray, paints and is metabolized to Carbon Monoxide in the human body.
  • Formaldehyde- produced from building materials including wood, ceiling tiles, wall boards and adhesives. Formaldehyde is slowly emitted over time.

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

Many factors affect the quality of the air in your home:

  • Humidity
  • Microbes- Bacteria, Viruses
  • Odors
  • Mold Spores, Fungus
  • Smoke and smoking residue
  • Gasses
  • Other contaminants- Dander, Particulates

The indoor air quality of your home is dependent on your HVAC equipment’s ability to remove contaminants from the air as it circulates it. Most systems rely on filters which are designed to reduce contaminants from your air as it is pulled through the system. Now there are better options to improve your Indoor Air Quality, Comfort and Health.
