The climate in Mount Pleasant, Texas, is humid subtropical. Residents in the area experience sticky summers in the 90s and dry winters with near-freezing temperatures at times. Fortunately, you have a lot of modern solutions to keep you and your family more comfortable, no matter what Mother Nature delivers to your door. Consider the following options that are available to make your home environment more pleasant:
Upgrade Your HVAC System
Manufacturers of HVAC systems are constantly improving their products to increase efficiency and performance. Depending on the age of your current system, you could benefit from an upgrade. Modern air conditioners can improve comfort while reducing your cooling costs by up to 30 percent when compared to conventional room AC systems from the 1990s.
Add a Whole-House Dehumidifier
We all know how high humidity can make hot temperatures even more unbearable. Removing humidity from the air in your home means that you can feel more comfortable without needing to lower the thermostat’s temperature. As a result, you’ll save energy and money.
High humidity can also reduce your comfort by promoting biological growth and unpleasant home odors. Adding a whole-home dehumidifier can improve comfort and even help preserve your wood furnishings.
Invest in Air Purification
Most of us don’t think about the quality of the air inside our homes. After all, the pollen and pollutants stay outside, right? Wrong!
The filters in your HVAC system help capture larger particles and debris like dust and pet dander. Even if you replace your filter regularly, your system can benefit from regular duct cleaning.
Regular filter changes and duct cleaning won’t rid your home of stale air or actively clean the air that your HVAC system circulates. Consider investing in an air purifier to improve your home’s indoor air quality even more and lead a healthier life at home.
