When you live in a hot, sticky climate such as ours, you use your air conditioner a lot. Naturally, you’ll want to find ways to save energy, and thus save money. An ERV, or an energy recovery ventilator, helps you do this by providing a method to ventilate your home without wasting precious energy. ERVs are designed to circulate fresh air into your home without compromising climate control. In layman’s terms, you will not need to open a window or door just to let fresh air in, while running your HVAC system.
When it comes to purifying your indoor air, you have many options. It is vital that you do everything in your power to maintain good indoor air quality, as avoiding this can result in ill effects on your health and the health of your family. Standard air filters can only do so much, as they are designed to protect the inside components of your HVAC system, and not your indoor air quality. Air filtration devices are great for removing pollutants and contaminants from the air, but they are not always 100% effective in completely purifying your air. However, a UV air purifier will help.
If you’ve lived through even one Texas summer, you are no stranger to humidity! Since your body is unable to cool itself off as well with all the excess moisture, humidity is extremely uncomfortable. But it doesn’t have to be that way in your home just because it’s unbearable outside. Installing a whole-house dehumidifier will improve both your indoor air quality and your health. Do you really need one though? Keep reading and decide for yourself.
