When temperatures are more moderate in the fall, you may find yourself using your HVAC system less. This is the perfect time to upgrade your heating and air conditioning unit. Whether you have been thinking about replacing your entire system or just installing add-ons to improve indoor air quality, now is the ideal time to contact an HVAC technician and upgrade your system.
Upgrade Your HVAC System
When it comes to upgrading your HVAC system, this doesn’t always require replacing your system. Below, we will discuss a few different options that you have for upgrading your air conditioner or heating system this fall.
Install an Energy-Efficient HVAC System
One of the most popular HVAC upgrades is replacing older heating and cooling systems with a brand new energy-efficient HVAC model. There are a variety of models available on the market today. An experienced HVAC technician can help you find the right energy-efficient HVAC system for you. Using this system, combined with other energy saving measures like improving insulation and adjusting home temperatures while you are out of the house will help you cut down on your energy use and be on your way to reducing cooling and heating costs.
Improve Indoor Air Quality with HVAC Upgrades
There are a few different upgrade options to help you improve indoor air quality. These are especially useful for those who suffer from allergies or asthma. Though the following systems are available as a stand-alone unit, you can also add the upgrade to your entire HVAC system to improve indoor air quality throughout your home:
- Dehumidifier – When humidity levels are high, some can find it difficult to breathe. High levels of humidity also cause moisture buildup, which is a breeding ground for mold and mildew. To prevent these issues, you can use a dehumidifier, which helps you control humidity levels and keep moisture from accumulating.
- Humidifier – When dry air is causing breathing difficulties or dry skin, a humidifier can help to adjust the humidity levels by adding additional moisture to the air. This can help those with respiratory issues breathe easier, promoting overall health.
- Air Purifier – Though your air filters catch a lot of pollutants and allergens from making their way through your home, these filters don’t catch it all. An air purifier helps you add an extra layer of protection to help filter out more contaminants. The general population does not typically need an air purifier, but this upgrade is helpful for those who suffer from extreme allergies or asthma. It can also help keep those with fragile immune systems (like infants and the elderly) healthy.
