Remember when you would leave the front door open as a kid and your parents would holler something about how they can’t afford to air condition the entire neighborhood? Well, now that you’re an adult, what they were saying makes a lot of sense. When the air conditioning goes on, our houses typically get pretty tightly shut to keep the cool air in and costs low. The downside to that, though, is that we don’t have much fresh air coming in.
So, in August in the Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Estero, Naples, Marco Island, Lehigh Acres and the surrounding area when the average high hits 92 degrees and the AC is running at full blast, how do we achieve proper ventilation so the air doesn’t get stale? Here are a few tips from D & D Air Conditioning and Heating to try.
Install a Whole-Home Air Purifier
A whole-house air purifier is integrated into your HVAC system to filter out the particles of dirt and other irritants that linger in your home’s air. These purifiers can screen out things like dust, microbial growth, pollen, smoke, pet dander, and more. While your air conditioner works to keep your home comfortable, your air purifier will work to keep the cool air you breathe clean, fresh, and healthy.
Assess the “V” in your HVAC System
The “ventilation” portion of HVAC units too often takes a backseat to the heating and cooling elements. The truth is, no matter how comfortable your home’s temperature is, the air you breathe will be stale and unhealthy if your home isn’t properly ventilated. The best HVAC systems include ventilators that mechanically move fresh, outdoor air into the home.
