Why You Should Be Thankful for Your HVAC System This Season

Why You Should Be Thankful for Your HVAC System This SeasonAmong many things to be thankful for this holiday season is your Yuma area home’s HVAC system. That is, you can feel gratitude as long as your heating and cooling system does a good job of not only regulating temperatures in your home, but also controlling humidity and cleaning your indoor air.

Following are some key characteristics of an HVAC system you can be thankful for:

It Keeps You Comfortable

It cools and heats your whole house efficiently and effectively, working hand in hand with comprehensive home weatherization. This means that not only should quality HVAC equipment be properly installed and maintained; your home’s outer envelope should be carefully sealed. In addition, the right type and amount of insulation should be installed in the attic, ceilings, walls and basement, as well as around ductwork that runs in unconditioned areas.

An HVAC system worth celebrating should be controlled by a Wi-Fi programmable thermostat that allows you to set energy-saving programs in advance and from remote locations with a tablet, phone or laptop.

It should have effective ventilation so there’s a reliable exchange of fresh outside air with indoor air that otherwise will get clammy and uncomfortable. This means not only exhaust fans in bathrooms but also the kitchen.

Along the same lines, whole-house air cleaning, installed with your central heating and cooling, will remove nearly all of the airborne contaminants that can trigger or exacerbate allergies and respiratory ailments.

If your HVAC system comes with all of these attributes, all you need to do is perform simple homeowner maintenance such as regular air-filter changes, while scheduling semi-annual preventive maintenance by a trusted local contractor.
