Don’t mess with Texas…weather. From our no-nonsense spring, summer, and fall heat to our below freezing winters, Fort Worth locals rely on their HVAC system year-round to provide reliable home comfort. This makes it essential to have a dependable air conditioner and furnace, but it also makes it important for homeowners to consider further products that can assist in overall HVAC system performance and home comfort.
Below, we’ll take you through some of the HVAC products that can help improve comfort levels in your Dallas-Fort Worth home. Then, you’ll have a better idea of which products might be right for your needs.
HVAC tech is rapidly advancing to help boost system performance and make the lives of homeowners easier. For Lewisville locals, the Wi-Fi thermostat is the perfect example of an HVAC accessory that encourages energy efficiency and complete control of system performance. By connecting your thermostat to your phone through Wi-Fi, you can have complete control of your air conditioner or heater from anywhere with the push of a button.
Carrier also provides intuitive thermostats that can take the effort of making decisions about your HVAC system completely out of your hands. With predictive and sensor technology, smart thermostats have the ability to forecast the weather to adjust system settings and recognize when the home is occupied or vacant to switch between energy efficiency and home comfort settings.
Whether you’re staying late at work, under the Friday night lights, or spending the weekend in Port A., your smart thermostat has your back. Never worry about what setting you left your thermostat at again with new intuitive technology from Carrier.
The heart of the Southwest, Texas is placed firmly within the warm and dry climate of southern U.S.A., while also being proximal to the gulf coast. The result can lead to drastic atmospheric shifts between high and low humidity levels. Since you don’t know what to expect throughout the year, having both a humidifier and dehumidifier readily accessible will greatly improve your home comfort.
Humidity has the intolerable effect of making warm days warmer and cool days colder. This can place homeowners at a constant state of discomfort, despite the thermostat settings and the efforts of an HVAC system. Trying to dial down the thermostat will only do so much and increase your energy bill in the process. It’s best to rely on a portable or whole-home dehumidifier to create a more balanced and comfortable atmosphere within your home.
High humidity levels can also impact the integrity of your home and damage your property. It can seep into the wood and cause it to rot and make metals rust. Controlling humidity levels does more than just keep you physically comfortable, but financially comfortable as well.
A dry atmosphere can also be uncomfortable for Dallas locals. From chapped lips and cracked skin to soar and dry throats, air devoid of humidity is equally unideal.
Due to the confined space and heavy activity of homes, the indoor air quality within a home is often worse than outdoor air quality. This becomes even more accurate when you increase the number of occupants and pets.
Beyond just filtering the air within your home, Carrier air purifiers have the ability to capture and kill harmful airborne pathogens. From viruses and bacteria to mold and allergens, Carrier’s Infinity air purifiers trap up to 95% of airborne particles and utilize an electric charge to eliminate them. Running at a frequency of up to 8 times per hour, mold spores are given no chance to inhabit your home.
Assisting in your air purifiers efforts to help replenish your home with new, fresh air could be a home ventilator. The more stagnant indoor air gets, the more likely dust, debris, germs, and other airborne contaminants are allowed to linger and pollute your indoor air quality. For residents with immune deficiencies or respiratory conditions, poor indoor air quality can wreak havoc on their health and wellbeing.
While Dallas’s air quality is improving, it still ranks among the worst in the nation. That fact along with the consistent heat that North Texans face limits the ability to just open windows and doors to promote sufficient airflow. A ventilator is a perfect solution to stale air for Texans. By filtering the air, ventilators won’t compromise indoor air quality.
For the complete package of indoor air quality products from Carrier, UV lamps can provide the final line of defense against mold, bacteria, and allergens. While UV lamps killing off these airborne contaminants will improve indoor air quality, the main focus of UV lamps is to protect your HVAC system from collecting mold spores and bacteria. The lamp is located near the indoor coil and drain pan, where mold and bacteria are most likely to collect. By killing off these harmful pathogens before they can even become airborne, UV lamps can greatly improve IAQ for your Fort Worth home.
