Heating and cooling keeps the interior of your home comfortable throughout the year, regardless of the weather conditions outside. Because there are many HVAC system options available, your home’s needs may differ than those of your neighbors’. Understanding your specific heating and cooling needs can help you stay on top of system maintenance and prevent issues such as overtaxed appliances and frequent breakdowns for a cleaner, healthier, and more inviting home environment.
Every Columbus home HVAC system needs biannual maintenance, regardless of whether you have a central or mini-split system installed. Maintenance is what keeps your heating and cooling system clean and in good repair, which in turn reduces the likelihood of breakdowns and contributes to cleaner air for a healthier home. While the exact maintenance services you receive will depend on the system you have, your heating and cooling technician will always clean the components of your system and check all parts for wear and tear that could signal the need for lubrication or replacement. If your home has ductwork installed, the ducts and air registers will also be checked for signs of blockages or leaks.
Humidifier and Air Cleaner Installation
The air in your home has many characteristics, of which temperature is only one. Both the percentage of moisture in the air and the amount of airborne allergens can also affect your comfort and even your health with every breath you take. If you are concerned about the effects of dry winter air on the finishes in your home or even your skin, eyes, nose, and mouth, adding a whole-home humidifier can dramatically improve the environment inside your home for greater comfort when the ambient air is dry. Alternatively, whole-home air cleaners go above and beyond your regular furnace filter to screen out airborne particles or even kill viruses and bacteria for the utmost in healthy home air, particularly if a family member suffers from allergies and asthma. Your heating and cooling service can help you select and install one or both of these air quality products to improve your living spaces.
If you live in a larger home, you may experience uneven heating and cooling that leaves some rooms comfortable, while others are too hot or too cold. This problem can often be solved through HVAC zoning, which adds a further level of control to your home’s heating and cooling system. Zoning allows you to specifically heat and cool defined areas of your home at a given time, such as an upper or lower floor, to both save money and more effectively direct heated and cooled air to the areas where you want it most. The addition of zoning makes achieving the comfort you want easier and more economical, while also reducing strain on your existing HVAC appliances by limiting the square footage they are required to regulate at any given time.
