Whether consciously or subconsciously, most homeowners are in constant pursuit of comfort. This is one of the reasons why the home improvement industry will continue to thrive so long as there are houses to improve upon. However, comfort–or indoor home comfort to be more precise–can be achieved through means other than remodeling.
In this article, HVAC maintenance specialist Sherrell Air sheds light on the four critical components that contribute to indoor home comfort.
When it’s cold out, you want your home to be warm and welcoming. When it’s muggy outside, you want it to be cool and comfortable. But since temperature is inherently unstable, your home is constantly struggling to maintain the perfect indoor conditions.
While humidity isn’t quite the same as temperature, it also has a lot to do with how comfortable or uncomfortable a room feels. Humidity levels need to be stable to prevent the air from feeling heavy and sticky.
When the air you breathe isn’t clean and pure, you’ll surely feel it. Particles such as dust, pet dander and pollen can irritate the eyes, nose and lungs. There are also tiny organisms that come from mold, mildew and germs which can aggravate allergies and asthma symptoms and create unpleasant odors. When these problems plague your home, air cleaners or purifiers and regular cleaning can help you breathe a little easier.
The three aforementioned factors can vary greatly from household to household. Since these three have a significant impact on a home’s level of indoor comfort, being able to control them is easily the most important factor. Luckily, when paired with high-performing HVAC systems, programmable thermostats allow homeowners to do just that.
