Your HVAC system is an essential part of creating the comfort you want in your home. Regardless of the temperature or weather conditions in Opelika, Alabama, you don’t want to take your home’s heating and cooling system for granted. If you’re not getting the comfort and operating efficiency you deserve from your HVAC system, we have some solutions for you. Let’s explore some HVAC system add-ons that can help you reduce your utility bills, ease allergies, control home temperatures, and more.
HVAC System Air Purifier
While your HVAC system’s air filter will do a good job of removing dust and dirt from the air, air purifiers capture and trap smaller, more elusive airborne particles. The Preferred Series Air Purifier captures up to 75% of particles 0.30 to 1.0 microns in size. For maximum air purification capabilities, consider the Bryant Evolution Perfect Air Purifier with its Capture and Kill technology that kills or inactivates close to 99% of the airborne pathogens it collects. If you have asthma or allergies, an air purifier can provide advanced filtration to capture irritants such as biological growth, dust, and pollen.
Carbon Monoxide Alarms
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that is impossible to detect on your own. If allowed to enter your home, carbon monoxide can be fatal to you and your family. A carbon monoxide alarm is a critical device that every home should have.
Place a carbon monoxide alarm on every floor of your home and close to your gas or oil furnace if you have one. If dangerous levels of carbon monoxide are detected, this device will warn your family immediately. You can take preventive steps to avoid carbon monoxide buildups by scheduling regular HVAC system maintenance that can ensure chimneys and flues are properly venting carbon monoxide out of your home.
Dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air to help you feel more comfortable during humid summer days. Excess moisture in the air creates favorable conditions for biological growth to form. When the air is persistently damp, your home can develop unpleasant musty odors. If you’ve struggled to keep your home from feeling too humid, a dehumidifier can help.
Did you know that dust mites also thrive in high humidity environments? When you lower humidity levels, dust mites will be less likely to stick to surfaces in your home. A whole-home dehumidifier provides a complete humidification control system throughout your house so that all members of your family can stay comfortable.
UV lamps work together with air cleaners to kill airborne allergens and pathogens. These special types of lights are effective at eliminating a variety of microbiological agents and can kill up to 98% of pathogens.
We can provide UV lamps that can be installed inside HVAC systems to kill bacteria and other forms of biological growth that may try to develop on the drain pan and indoor coils of your HVAC system. When installed directly in the system itself, UV lamps can halt the growth of potentially hazardous microorganisms in your home, improve the system’s operating efficiency, and enhance airflow.
HVAC System Ventilators
Homeowners often focus so much on sealing their homes to prevent cooling and heating loss that they often forget about promoting airflow in and out of their homes. Homes with excellent insulation and well-sealed doors, roofing, and windows can still have poor ventilation.
Ventilators help remove stale air from a home by regularly venting it outside and pulling fresh, clean air inside. This exchange of air expels indoor pollutants such as volatile organic compounds, pet dander, and dust. Ventilators bring outdoor air into the home and filter pollen and other unwanted pollutants from the air before it enters the HVAC system.
In a warm, humid climate such as Opelika, a Byrant Preferred Horizontal Energy Recovery Ventilator helps transfer indoor heating and cooling energy to incoming air so that you can enjoy fresh air even on sultry days.
