    HVAC Upgrades That Will Improve Your Family's Health
  2. INTRODUCTION When many homeowners consider an HVAC upgrade, it usually

    concerns methods for making their house more energy-efficient and perhaps lowers their monthly heating and cooling costs in the process. While those are important considerations, what you may not realize is that it's also possible to make upgrades to your existing HVAC system that can lead to better air quality in your home. In most cases, these improvements are relatively inexpensive, can be done in a few hours, and may even contribute to better health for your family.
  3. UPGRADES TO IMPROVE YOUR HOME'S INDOOR AIR QUALITY Dust particles,

    bacteria, and extremely dry air can lead to respiratory problems, allergies, and perhaps even more serious illnesses. Most modern HVAC systems are supplemented by fresh air and use a series of common filters that catch many dust particles as air flows through the ductwork and out into your home. These filters are designed to be replaced or cleaned at regular intervals.
  4. AIR PURIFIER An air purifier can remove bacteria, mold, and

    viruses that a standard HVAC filter misses. Some air purifiers never need to be cleaned - so you don't have to worry about forgetting to change the filter - and they don't restrict airflow. If clean air for your family is a priority, some models can re- purify your home's indoor air eight times an hour.
  5. HUMIDIFIERS Everyone likes a toasty home during the winter, but

    not the dry sinuses the heat can cause. There are several types of HVAC humidifiers, but in general, they add moisture to your home's indoor air during the months the heat is being used. Ask your HVAC contractor which type works best for your system
  6. CARBON MONOXIDE ALARMS It is called the silent killer and

    is one of every family's worst nightmares, but how do you know when your family is at risk? Carbon Monoxide alarms don't attach to your HVAC system, but they monitor your home's indoor air quality and sound an alarm when CO levels get to dangerous levels
  7. UV LAMPS cool air flowing out of your home's vents

    feels great on a hot summer day, but unfortunately, the moisture involved in creating that cool breeze can be a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. UV lamps kill bacteria and mold on your cooling coils and keep your home's indoor air quality fresh and clean
  8. CONCLUSION These are just a few of the options available

    to ensure the air your family breathes at home is clean and healthy. Ask your local HVAC contractor about other upgrades that may be available for your home's system. While this arrangement works well in most cases, it doesn't always catch all of the debris that may be flowing through your ducts. There are upgrades available that can make your HVAC system even better -- consider these options for your home:
