Heating System Extras Can Go a Long Way Toward Greater Indoor Comfort & Energy Savings
Before Comfort Air installs a new comfort system in your home, we first design it to fit your lifestyle. We ask you about energy efficiency, ideal temperatures within your home, special health needs you might have, and more. Based on what you say, we recommend certain add-ons to make your system more user-friendly for you.
Separate Zones and Programmable Thermostats
Does one thermostat operate your old heating and cooling system? While this may be convenient, it may add to your energy costs to crank up the heat based on the needs of one room. Now you can control the temperature in each room by setting up “zones ” for heating and cooling that you control with separate thermostats.
This simple action enables you to vary the temperature in each room. If you are not using a room, you can send minimal heat or air conditioning there, while making yourself comfortable in the part of the house where you spend your time.
Zoned heating and cooling systems are especially useful for multi-story homes, but even one level home, you can use energy more efficiently by just heating or cooling what you need.
To maximize the impact of zoning, you can use programmable thermostats to automatically increase or decrease the temperature of your heating or air conditioning system. If you are away from home during the day, you can program thermostat to turn down your A/C or your heat all day, and then to turn it up before you return. You can control many models from a remote location on your smartphone.
Whole-House Air Filtration System in Palm Springs
Surprisingly, the air in your home is on the average 5 times more polluted than outside air due to the accumulation of dust, dust mites, pet dander, mold, and mildew that cling to your heating ducts - plus cleaning by products, formaldehyde from new carpeting and furniture, and pesticides that linger in the air.
By installing a filtration system inside the ducts, you can capture at least 99.7% of the pollutants that pass through your system's filter before they come into your living space in your lungs.
A Whole-House Humidifier in Palm Springs
Located in the Colorado Desert, Palm Springs is an extremely dry area that gets only 5.53 inches of rain per year. When your home is too dry, you can experience cracked wood, peeling paint, and static shock. Plus, you can experience sore throat, nosebleeds, and additional infections. Adding humidity to the air can keep you and your family more comfortable.
The best way to do this is with a home humidifier that adds moisture to the air. Not only can you prevent damage to your body and your home, you can make your home more comfortable and energy efficient. You can even set your temperature a few degrees lower when there is humidity in the air and yet feel more comfortable while saving money.
