Things are yellow...

Yes, it’s that time of year again. When things start blooming and things get yellow. Some sneezing and sniffling too! The pollen is starting to take over Greensboro and that means some of us will be outside more, and some of us will be inside more. For those of us who prefer the inside, here are some tips for making your home a better place to breathe.HVAC systems must be properly designed, installed, and maintained to ensure good operation to help you and your home breathe better. Ventilation is a key.Follow a regular maintenance schedule for your the HVAC system. Regularly service the filters and humidifiers. Install special high efficiency filters in the HVAC system. A quick consult with us  to ensure your system is properly designed for your home. Use exhaust fans in potential problem areas, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and hobby rooms, to exhaust contaminants generated inside the home. Residents can supply additional make-up air to the inside of the home by using mechanical fans when outdoor temperatures are favorable in the spring and autumn. When temperatures are severe during the summer and winter, air-to-air heat exchangers may be installed to supply make-up air. These units exhaust stale, warm air from the house and transfer the heat in that air to fresh air being supplied from the outside. In air-conditioned houses during the summer months, heat is transferred from the incoming warm air to the outgoing air, causing a reduction in the energy required for air conditioning. Homeowners also can install fans that supply outdoor air directly to the return side of the HVAC system. These fans are usually installed with a timing mechanism or manual control to regulate the amount of outdoor air supplied to the structure. This type of system works effectively to supply make-up air. So give us a call if you want you and your home to breathe a little easier this spring and summer.
