When most homeowners think about home comfort, their minds immediately go to their heating and air conditioning systems. But did you know staying comfortable at home involves much more than just those two components?
If you want your home to be a true oasis for you and your family this fall, now is a good time to consider a comfort upgrade such as a smart thermostat or home zoning. In addition to feeling more comfortable indoors, you could also see savings on your utility bills!
Which Comfort Upgrade Is Right for You?
There are a number of ways to fine-tune your home comfort. We’re here to help you determine which option is best for you.
Still adjusting the temperature with a conventional thermostat? By upgrading to a smart Wifi thermostat, you’ll gain greater control over your home comfort and energy usage. Schedule your heating and cooling systems to kick in at specific times of the day, and save energy (and money) by heating or cooling your home less when you’re not there. You can even see your energy usage in real-time and control settings remotely using your smartphone!
Do you constantly feel that certain rooms are too cold while others are too hot? Do you wish you could heat and cool only the rooms that you’re currently using? You could benefit from home zoning.
Home zoning allows you set different areas of your home to different temperatures. Keep your bedrooms at a cool 68°F while the living room stays at a cozy 73°F. Or, save money by conditioning the kitchen and living room less at night when you’re not using them.
Mini-split heat pump
Do you have one room in your home that is notoriously hard to keep comfortable? You don’t have to reconfigure all of your ductwork. By installing a mini-split heat pump, you can get targeted heating and cooling for a particular room or area, all while using very little energy. Installation is simple and fast, because these systems don’t require any ductwork.
Indoor air quality plays an essential role in your home comfort. Is your indoor air filled with allergens and outside pollutants?
With an air filtration or air purification system attached to your existing HVAC system, you can rest easy knowing that your indoor air is safe and clean. Air filtration removes dust, bacteria, and mold from the air, while air purification takes things a step further and kills germs using UV-C light. These add-ons to your HVAC system are especially great if people in your family have allergies.
