Easy to Read Thermostats
Did you know thermostats have a useful life? One of the easiest ways to increase your furnace’s efficiency is to upgrade to an easy to read digital thermostat. If you find yourself struggling to read your thermostat because the numbers are just too small, we have thermostats available with large displays that are easy to read. This is one of our home comfort products that, once installed, will be an easy way to save money on your annual energy bill.
Whole House Humidifiers
In areas with dry climates, especially in homes heated by gas, you may have experienced some of the many problems that come with dry heat. Such as nosebleeds, dry sinuses, dry skin, chapped dry lips, and more. If you have experienced any of these issues, a whole-house humidifier may be the answer for you. By adding a whole-house humidifier, you set the appropriate amount of humidity you want throughout your house and forget about it. Besides the health benefits you may experience, your whole house humidifier prevents drying out or deteriorating your furniture, the floors, walls, and other items in your home.
Whole House Fans
A whole-house fan can substitute or subsidize the need for an air conditioner. By pulling in air from open windows and exhausting that air through the attic or roof, you can provide an energy-efficient form of cooling and reduce your air conditioner’s burden. Whole-house fans also exchange the air in your home at a rate of 30 to 60 air changes per hour. That provides you with plenty of fresh air moving throughout your home.
Whole House Temperature Zoning
If you find that some rooms are too hot or too cold compared to the rest of your home or office, it may be time to look into whole-house temperature zoning. Temperature variations in a home are common. One thermostat can’t control each room at the desired temperature. Temperature zoning can fix your problem and make it, so your comfort level is where you need it to be.
One of our most popular home comfort products is an air scrubber. Now that homes are very “tight” and energy-efficient, it has caused an issue with mold growth potential. Mold produces tiny spores, which, when entering your ventilation system, can be spread throughout your home and into your air, you breathe. To combat this issue, you may want to consider an air sterilization system or air scrubber. There are a few different kinds of systems to sterilize the air in your home. The system we prefer most uses ultraviolet (UV) germicidal lights, better known as Germicidal UVC technology. This technology is an efficient and cost-effective method to sterilize your air. The light energy produced from this system successfully eliminates fungi, bacteria, viruses, spores, dust mites, and parasites from entering your ventilation system and spreading throughout your home.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Carbon Monoxide is an odorless, colorless, tasteless, and deadly gas. It’s produced as your furnace or water heater burns gas to keep it running. It’s then is exhausted through the unit’s ductwork. Professionals highly recommended having a detector near your appliances to detect any potential concerns before it causes a problem.
High Efficiency Filters
As most people spend more time indoors, it is crucial to get the best air possible to breathe. The Environmental Protection Agency has noted “a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities. Other research indicates that people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. Thus, for many people, the [health risk] may be greater from exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors.” A high-efficiency furnace filtration system can help reduce the air pollutants and make the indoor air quality much better than a standard filtration system..
Remote Monitoring Systems
Have you ever been on vacation during the winter and worried that your furnace might go out while you are away. If your furnace goes out, this could cause some significant problems. The biggest concern would be that water pipes would freeze, burst, and potentially flood your home. With a remote monitoring system, you can check in to see and control your home’s temperature. You’ll know that everything is working correctly and you aren’t going to come home to a mess.
You can also use this same system to monitor a heat-sensitive room (such as a server room) at your business. Sometimes rooms with a lot of equipment can heat up too much and damage valuable equipment. Having a monitoring system can prevent this costly mistake.
Attics can hold a lot of heat during the summer months. Keeping that added heat makes your air conditioner work harder. More work means a higher energy cost.
An attic ventilation system can exchange hot air for cooler air and produce a more cost-effective and energy-efficient home. Not to mention that reducing the heat in your attic may extend the life of your roof.
As long as you use them properly, programmable thermostats can save anywhere from 5-8% of the energy your heating and air system would have otherwise used. The money saved by using a programmable thermostat can quickly pay for itself. Some thermostats can even be adjusted from your phone, which not only can save money, but also adds a level of convenience.
We suggest getting your ducts cleaned every three to five years. When having your ducts cleaned, it is best to use a qualified technician with the right kind of equipment. This equipment must be powerful enough to clean but gentle enough not to cause damage.
A good duct cleaning system will have a rotating brush with a powerful vacuum system built-in so that the brush can scrub the duct’s interior, and the vacuum can remove any build up inside the duct. Be cautious of using machines that rotate at too high of speeds. They can cause damage to your duct. Professionals recommend using a brush that rotates between 400-500 revolutions per minute to maintain a safe but effective cleaning method. Ameritrue also offers you video footage of your clean ducts, so you know your ventilation system is ready to provide the clean air you need.
