Before I decided on the right indoor air conditions accessory for my home, I did some research.
I wanted to maximize the benefit of my investment. I was nervous about the health of my family’s living environment. Because of serious weather just about year round, all of us rely heavily on the furnace and the a/c. Both of us switch from heating to cooling without much of a chop in-between. It’s necessary to insulate, caulk and weatherstrip to eliminate energy waste. This creates a tighter thermal envelope, prevents drafts and keeps our utility costs as low as possible, then however, contaminants become trapped insideâ€¦ Cooking, cleaning, personal hygiene products, pesticides, pets and all sorts of things add to the problem, dust, dander, unpleasant odors, VOCs, mold spores, bacteria and viruses cause health problems. Headaches, sore throat, difficulty sleeping, sneezing, coughing, itchy esure and respiratory infections can often be blamed on the indoor air conditions. Both of us also have problems with insufficient humidity in the Wintertide and excessive moisture in the summer. I considered media air cleaners, humidifiers, dehumidifiers, germicidal UV lights and ventilators. I study up on the benefits of each kind and chose a ventilator that brings fresh air into the home to replace the stale air. It makes for a cleaner, more great and comfortable living space. I opted for a heat reusey ventilator that uses the outgoing air to preheat the incoming air. It lessens the workload of the furnace, trimming costs while increasing reliability and equipment longevity. In the summer, it works to reduce humidity and help out the a/c.
