Your indoor air quality is essential in keeping your family healthy and comfortable. Indoor air quality entails more than just clean air. It also includes humidity levels. At Getzschman, we’ve got you covered. We carry a variety of products that can help keep the air in your home as healthy and comfortable as possible.
Air Scrubber Plus Air Cleaner – There are three classes of indoor air contaminants, particles, mold-mildew-bacteria, odors-chemical vapors. Air Scrubber Plus system uses positive and negative charges (ions). The charges cause particles to be attracted to one another and clump together. Once the particles are large enough, they are caught by your heating and cooling system filter. This process also helps to keep your Heating and cooling system coil cleaner and your family healthier.
Humidity can make a big difference in how you feel in your home. For instance, in the summer your air conditioner removes as much humidity as possible to make the air in your home feel cooler in the summer. A dehumidifier can help remove even more. In the winter, a lack of humidity can cause dry, itchy skin, cracked lips, and bloody noses. Static shock can become annoyingly common and dry air can also be bad for wood floors and furniture causing them to dry out and crack. That’s when you need a whole house humidifier. At Getzschman, we can install both humidifiers and dehumidifiers. A good time to install a new humidifier is when you replace your furnace and air conditioning system.
When you need humidity removed from your home, we also have dehumidifiers that can help your air conditioner out by reducing the humidity level inside your home in the summer. They help your cooling system to work more efficiently, run less often, and you can set your thermostat to a higher temperature. Mold and mildew will be reduced and wood floors and furniture won’t suffer from too much moisture. We have two Honeywell Whole-House dehumidifiers to choose from. One removes 120 pints of moisture from your home per day and the other 90 pints per day. We can help you decide which one is right for your home.
UV Germicide Lamps
Mold, mildew, bacteria, and viruses can settle on surfaces inside your HVAC system and circulate through your home’s air. UV germicidal lamps can kill these biological contaminants. These lamps emit rays of ultraviolet light that penetrate the cell walls of these contaminants and kill them. They work continuously even when your heating or cooling system isn’t on. The professionals at Getzschman Heating and Air Conditioning can recommend the best UV light for your heating and cooling system.
According to the Energy Star website, programmable thermostats can save you an average of $180 a year on utility bills. They are a very worthwhile investment. The secret is being able to pre-program them to turn the temperature up or down (depending on the season) while you are away from home so your furnace or air conditioner isn’t heating or cooling your home for no one. They can be programmed to start heating or cooling an hour before anyone gets home so no one is ever uncomfortable. If you’d like a programmable thermostat installed in your home, just give us a call and we’ll even help you program it.
