Keeping your Green Valley, Arizona, home comfortable can be a challenge, but it’s definitely worth it. You can save energy, extend your HVAC system’s life, and increase the value of your house. Useful home comfort upgrades include zoning, an air purifier, and a whole-home ventilation system.
A zoning system has more than one indoor unit or a series of specialized dampers in your ductwork to direct conditioned air where it’s needed. Each zone or area has its own thermostat, so you can control them separately. That way, everyone can choose the temperatures in their own bedrooms. You can avoid arguing with family members about your thermostat settings, and you won’t have to heat or cool unoccupied rooms. Many programmable thermostats let you control all the zones in your home from one location or from your computer or phone.
An air purifier or air cleaner uses an air filter like the one in your HVAC system to remove contaminants. It can reduce dust and dirt on your furniture and catch pollen, pet dander, and other pollutants before they damage your ductwork, your heater, or your air conditioner.
Whole-Home Ventilation System
A whole-home ventilator in your ductwork removes stale, polluted indoor air and replaces it with fresh outdoor air. That way, you can get rid of viruses, bacteria, bad smells from cooking, excess humidity, and harmful chemicals. You can also avoid many unpleasant symptoms from poor indoor quality, including headaches, sore throats, rashes, dizziness, eye irritation, and sinus problems. An energy recovery ventilator or ERV can conserve energy as well. It works like a heat pump to condition outdoor air before it comes into your home.
