A house is not unlike the human body, in that it has multiple different systems that need to work in conjunction together in order to provide a pleasant and comfortable environment for your family. Here in Orlando, FL we don’t spend a whole lot of thought on our heating systems, since most of the year is devoted to keeping our homes cool, not warm. But you may be spending more than you need to on your heating bills every month, in part because you don’t have any auxiliary systems working in conjunction with it. These upgrades are easy to install and can make a huge difference with your HVAC system, not just in the winter, but all year round. Here are 3 of them that can help your heater perform at its best.
Zone Control Systems
A zone control system sets up a series of dampers in your duct system, dividing your home into sections. Each damper has its own thermostat and control system, allowing to adjust the temperature in each section individually, or even turn off the heat in parts of the home you aren’t using. That eases strain on your heater, as well as reducing monthly bills. Best of all, the same applies to your air conditioner in the summer too.
If you have an older thermostat, it might be due to put in a new one. Modern thermostats offer amenities such as smart programming and remote control via an app on your phone. That allows you to tailor the heating system’s schedule to match your specific needs, helping to improve its efficiency the more you use it.
Air cleaners are designed to remove dust and dirt from the air. Besides keeping your home cleaner, they reduce the amount of dust and gathers in your heater, which can cause it to lose efficiency and eventually suffer a breakdown if left untreated.
