We’re only a few days into summer, but it feels as if summer arrived in Lakeforest, Illinois, a few months ago. If you are trying to stay cool and tackle high temperatures and humidity in your home, these innovative HVAC products can help you to beat the heat and stay comfortable all summer long.
Fiddling with your thermostat multiple times a day isn’t the best way to maintain a comfortable temperature and leads to energy waste. A programmable thermostat takes your daily habits into account, allowing you to manage cooling efficiently so you will be comfortable at all times. Programmable thermostat models can store multiple daily settings and allow you to override the preset program without affecting the rest of the week.
Maintaining adequate humidity levels is key to keeping your home cool and comfortable all summer long. A whole-home dehumidifier works in conjunction with your air conditioning system to reduce musty odors, remove mildew, and eliminate stuffy air. Stuffy, humid air, will make your home feel hotter than it actually is. A whole-home dehumidifier is a great addition if someone in your home suffers from a respiratory condition.
HVAC UV Lights
Ultraviolet light has been used for a variety of purposes — from sterilizing water to sterilizing surgical equipment. In the home, UV lights coupled with an HVAC system can kill bacteria and mold, improving the quality of air your HVAC pumps out. Sterilized air may not technically feel any cooler, but boosting your indoor air quality during the summer months makes your conditioned air more breathable, reducing allergies and improving comfort.
Whole-Home Air Purifier
Along those same lines, a whole-home air purifier improves indoor air quality and makes your summer air more breathable. Air cleaners can be retrofitted to any existing HVAC system, helping it run more efficiently and boosting its lifespan.
