My local area experiences temperature swings from downside twenty-5 up to the low nineties, and our weather forecast officially calls for sleet, hail, snow, high winds, high humidity, thunderstorms, rain, freezing rain and blizzard conditions, and all of us switch from running the furnace to relying on the cooling system with unquestionably little cut in-between, however the opening to open the windows and bring in some fresh air is rare! Because of the high cost of heating and cooling, I’ve taken every precaution to tighten up our home and prevent energy waste, then i’ve added insulation to the walls, ceilings and attic, paying unique attention to power outlets and plumbing pipes.
I’ve installed ceiling fans to help distribute the heat during the Wintertide and create a cooling effect during the summer.
I officially walk around and look for spots that might need caulk or weatherstripping. Thermal-lined curtains help to prevent energy losses from the windows during the colder months, then my efforts have helped to lessen demands on the heating and cooling system, however, the tightly sealed modern home traps contaminants inside. The air becomes stuffy, musty and polluted. Everything from the family pet to cleaning, cooking and pesticides contribute to air quality complications. I worry about our family’s health. The solution was the installation of an media air cleaner. The air quality accessory is incorporated right into the heating/cooling component to treat the air as it passes through and provide improvement for the entire house. It works to trap particulates, eliminate odors and kill pathogens such as mold spores, viruses and bacteria. I don’t have to clean as often, the modern home odors fresher and I’ve noticed that our family suffers from fewer colds, coughs and headaches.
