When you live in West Palm Beach, Florida, keeping your HVAC system as energy efficient as possible isn’t always easy. If you’re constantly dealing with indoor pollution at home, keeping your heating and cooling system efficient is even tougher. Fortunately, some HVAC add-ons can help. Here are three indoor air quality components that can help improve HVAC efficiency.
Your HVAC system relies on an air filter to prevent pollutants from entering the finely calibrated parts of your HVAC system. If your home tends to attract pet dander, dust or even mold, a basic air filter may not do enough.
Instead, a whole-house air cleaner like the Infinity Air Purifier GAPA can trap up to 95 percent of the contaminants in the air. By keeping pollutants from entering your HVAC system and eliminating them from the air, it helps your heating and cooling system running smoothly all year long.
Pockets of stale air often indicate that your HVAC system isn’t circulating fresh air as efficiently as it should, but an energy-recovery ventilator can help. Not only does this HVAC add-on keep the fresh air flowing constantly, but it also improves your system’s overall efficiency. It captures the outgoing thermal energy and uses that to precondition the incoming air. This add-on can be a lifesaver during the summer months.
In addition to keeping you cool, your air conditioner is designed to keep humidity levels in check. If your system can’t keep up with the Florida humidity, however, it can easily overwork itself and run inefficiently. A Performance Whole-Home Dehumidifier DEHXX can tackle your home’s humidity issues and boost your HVAC system’s efficiency. As an added bonus, it’ll also help you feel more comfortable and cool down more quickly on those hot summer days.
