Your home is that special place to which you look forward to retreating at the end of the day. If you’ve noticed that your level of indoor comfort seems to be declining, it could very likely be related to the temperature, air quality or humidity levels inside – or a combination of all three. Luckily, these are all things over which you have a fair amount of control.
Having an efficient heating and cooling system and a programmable thermostat are important in maintaining ideal indoor temperatures. You can also control the indoor temperature by air-sealing your home, and using window coverings. The thermostat setting may be the first or only thing many consider when the AC comfort levels are not as desired, but other factors such humidity, play a direct role as well.
Those hot and humid Alabama days can be even more unbearable when you can’t escape them inside your own home. Using ceiling fans and a dehumidifier can go a long way toward removing excess moisture, and making it feel much nicer inside. These options will also allow you to turn the temperature up a few degrees, saving you energy dollars without any sacrifice in comfort.
If the quality of the air you breathe at home is compromised, your health and comfort may be as well. Keeping a clean living space, having adequate ventilation and good air filtration, are necessary for maintaining good indoor air quality. Germicidal ultraviolet (UV) lights in ducts, provide even more protection by destroying mold and bacteria.
