Your HVAC system works hard to provide comfort inside your home all year long, but were you aware that there are accessories available that offer some great benefits as well?
Here we’re going to look at some of the HVAC accessories that you may find very beneficial to the indoor comfort needs at your home.
MERV, or Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, is a measure of how well an HVAC filter removes particulates from the air. A higher MERV rating means better filtration of your air. This can be very important in months when pollen and dust counts are high. Good filters not only improve your home’s indoor air quality. They also help protect your heating and cooling system from air particles that can wear out the components over time.
UV Air Purifier.
If allergies are a problem or if you have family members with breathing issues in your home, you may benefit from having a UV air purifier installed. These HVAC accessories are actual ultraviolet lights that are installed inside your HVAC system. As air flows past them, the UV light kills off bacteria, mold, fungus, and other living organisms that can affect your indoor air quality.
In addition to benefiting people with allergies, UV lights are also capable of killing many types of viruses. They purify the air that flows through your HVAC system, leaving you with cleaner air to breathe inside your home. As a bonus, they keep the conditions inside your HVAC system sterile, a factor which can extend the life of your equipment.
A Smart Thermostat.
A smart thermostat has numerous benefits, one of the biggest reasons to upgrade to a smart (WiFi) thermostat is the energy cost savings. You can easily track your energy usage, system performance, humidity levels as well as control the thermostat with one of your internet connected devices such as a computer, iPad, and most smartphones.
