A Quick Guide to Improving Your Home’s Comfort

Posted on in Articles

If you want ultimate home comfort, but can't find the time to improve your home's comfort, you aren't alone. There are ways to get the perfect temperature in your Nederland, Texas, home without breaking the bank or using a ton of your valuable time. By following a few simple tips, you can drastically improve home comfort that will leave you comfortable all year long.

Get a Tuneup

Preventative maintenance and tuneups are an awesome way to improve comfort. When you schedule a tuneup with us biannually, you'll have a system that runs at maximum efficiency. Not only does this provide a wonderful setting in your home, but it also lowers your energy bills. In addition, routine maintenance can limit the wear and tear on your HVAC system and identify any problems before they arise. This allows you to keep the system for a longer time without costly repairs.

Join Our Energy Savings Club

When you join our Energy Savings Club, you'll get a bevy of benefits that will make your HVAC system humming at optimal efficiency. For a small annual fee, you can enjoy perks and savings in the Energy Savings Club, including a 15 percent discount on parts, priority service, a one-year parts and labor warranty, no overtime charges, a fall and spring tuneup, and a $100 loyalty credit each year which goes towards the purchase price of future equipment replacement. You'll also enjoy spectacular home comfort and peace of mind. You really can't put a price on that.

Duct Cleaning

The ductwork in your home carries air from the central HVAC units into your home. However, they can become clogged with debris like pollen, dust, dirt, and pet dander, limiting efficiency and causing your indoor air quality to suffer. That's why you should consider a duct cleaning. When you schedule a duct cleaning with us, our technicans will use special brushes, vacuums, and cleaning products to clean and sanitize your ducts. Once we're done, you'll notice better air quality and improved home comfort without any drafts or hot spots in your home.

After the duct cleaning, it's up to you when to clean them again, but most studies recommend you have the ductwork cleaned every three to 10 years.

Install a Smart Thermostat

Over the past two decades, thermostats have been the beneficiary of enhanced technology. If you still have an analog thermostat in your home, you could literally be letting money and comfort fly right out the window. These units aren't very accurate, and don't always work cohesively with your HVAC system. Programmable thermostats are a step above, but they also pale in comparison to a smart thermostat.

Like a programmable thermostat, smart thermostats allow you to set a weekly schedule, and so much more. Many come equipped with a Wi-Fi feature that allows you to adjust the temperature from your smartphone from anywhere in the world, provided you have an internet connection. A smart thermostat also learns from your behaviors, adjusting the temperature to fit your tastes and schedule. They also provide zoning features, which allow you to heat and cool only the rooms you're occupying.

Add Houseplants

Plants add a wonderful ambiance to your home, but few know that they also improve home comfort by removing harmful substances from the air. Formaldehyde and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) come from everyday products, and they can cause respiratory problems. Houseplants filter out these chemicals, as well as many others, allowing you to breathe easier in the process.

Change the Filter

If you're searching for a quick, easy way to increase home comfort, look no further than your HVAC filter. These filters help remove particles and contaminants from the air before they come into your home. However, a clogged filter can't do its job, resulting in poor air quality, erratic temperatures, and more wear and tear on your furnace and air conditioner. As a general rule, you should replace the filter at least once every 30 to 90 days depending on your usage.

Improving your home's comfort isn't a difficult task if you know where to start. While you can do many of these jobs on your own, you may need us for a tuneup or duct cleaning. Don't hesitate to give Thermacon Service Company, Inc. a call today at 409-289-8008.
