Having problems with poor air quality and airflow in your Conway, Arkansas, home? It may be time for a system upgrade. A new HVAC system is a good investment that can improve your home’s indoor air quality and home comfort in a variety of ways. Consider the following reasons why it’s the perfect time to upgrade to a more modern unit.
It’s important to keep optimal humidity levels in your home. Allergens and other biological growth increase when your home is too humid, leading to poor indoor air quality and respiratory problems. A new HVAC system removes moisture from the air, reducing humidity and increasing comfort. Depending on humidity levels, you may need to add a dehumidifier and ventilator to your system as well. These can help further reduce humidity and expel unclean air outside.
Indoor air can be worse than the air you breathe outside because your home is tightly sealed, trapping air pollutants inside. New air filters within an HVAC system stop allergens and other debris from circulating around your home. The air blowing out of your vents is much cleaner after passing through these filters.
Consider having an air cleaner installed with your new system, especially if people suffering from allergies or asthma live in your home. Air cleaners trap and remove up to 99.98 percent of harmful airborne particles after the air filter. With low operating costs and no replacement filters necessary, these units are an easy and affordable extra fix for unclean air.
Fix the System Design
A poorly designed HVAC system leads to a host of problems in your home. Ductwork problems like leaks and improper sizing lead to uneven heating and cooling and increased energy use. If your current system is too small for your home, then it may be working too hard to try to keep up with temperature demands. Our professional HVAC technicians perform a whole-home assessment of your current system and indoor air quality. They’re ready to steer you toward the right products for your situation.
Add Healthy Home Solutions
After inspection and proper HVAC maintenance by our team, you may not need an entirely new HVAC system. We can easily add any air quality products for a healthier home to your current system. Air cleaners, dehumidifiers, and ventilators are just some of the extra solutions we offer for air that’s cleaner and easier to breathe.
Zone Your System
When you have a new HVAC system installed, it gives you the opportunity to install a new zoning system as well. Zoned heating and cooling are controlled by one or more easy-to-use thermostats and sometimes dampers. Sensors can also be placed in different spaces throughout your home so your HVAC system can easily detect where to direct heated or cooled air. Install a zoned system to enjoy accurate temperature control and steady comfort on demand.
Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat
One of the best features of a smart thermostat is that it’s constantly vigilant so you don’t have to be. Maintenance reminders and other system alerts are clearly displayed on their colorful, easy-to-navigate touch screens. When you’re away from home, you can keep an eye on things and easily adjust your thermostat from any internet-connected device.
Continue HVAC Maintenance
After a new system is installed, it’s still important to continue regular HVAC maintenance. Simple acts, such as changing out your air filters, improve your indoor air quality and keep your system functioning properly. Larger maintenance tasks like a full inspection and tune-up should be carried out one to two times per year to ensure optimal HVAC performance. Stay on top of your maintenance plan to keep your system running efficiently and to avoid costly breakdowns and repairs.
