- Adequate Filtration – Filtration is by far one of the most important components of healthy air quality in your home. This simple process prevents your HVAC system from accumulating all sorts of dangerous elements such as dust, mold, dander, and bacteria to name a few. Here at South Nashville Heating and Cooling we highly recommend the use of a high, quality, efficiency media air cleaner with, at minimum, a MERV-8 filter. Though the cost may be a bit high, the investment is well worth the comfort, health, and safety of your family.
- An Efficient Humidifier – Another important air quality product necessary for your home is an efficient humidifier. With the installation of a humidifier, you are able to provide sufficient humidity needed during the cold weather months. Our team of professionals suggests you choose a simple but effective option, and be sure to maintain your new investment regularly. There are a number of quality humidifier products on the market today. If you are uncertain as to which humidifier best suits your needs, be sure to reach out to one of our team.
- Proper Dehumidification – Yet another important component of satisfactory indoor air quality is dehumidification. Improving your air quality by way of dehumidification is especially important in the hot summer months. If you have a central AC system, it is very easy to be able to dehumidify your home. Simply reach out to one of our techs for more information. If you have a ductless air conditioning system, these systems have a dehumidification feature on the unit that is designed to specifically remove any unwanted moisture and humidity in your living space. This can be performed without having to adjust the temperature in your home. Whatever your circumstances may be, an adequate dehumidification process is essential to good air quality in your home.
- Let the Fresh Air In – Finally, a simple but very effective approach to enhancing the indoor air quality of your home is by simply allowing the outdoor fresh air in. One way of accomplishing this important task is by investing in a home ventilator that not only can remove old, contaminated air from your home, but can also allow for outdoor fresh air to be introduced into your home. An energy efficient home ventilator is an ideal option for enhancing the air quality in your home. Contact our team for more information.
