When the weather outside is less than pleasant, the HVAC system in your Hammond, Louisiana, home helps keep you and your family comfortable. Learn about three factors that affect your indoor comfort and how to keep your home healthy and comfortable year-round.
Possibly the most obvious factor affecting indoor comfort is the temperature. Your HVAC system works hard to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. An efficient HVAC system will effectively cool or heat your home to your desired indoor temperature, so it’s important to conduct routine maintenance on your system.
You can also keep your system working efficiently by updating your home’s insulation. For example, make sure your attic is well insulated to help keep cold or hot air out. You can also insulate the air ducts that run through the attic to reduce loss of cooled or heated air as it travels from your system to your air vents. Insulation will better regulate your indoor temperature, improving comfort.
Indoor Air Quality
Another factor that affects indoor comfort is your indoor air quality. Dirty or stuffy air is not only unpleasant but also unhealthy for your family. You can improve your indoor air quality by changing out your air filter during seasonal maintenance visits. The air filter is designed to catch those dirty particles that circulate through your home, so a clean air filter will improve your indoor air quality. Our HVAC team can also perform an indoor air quality inspection on your home to determine any other factors contributing to poor indoor air quality.
Part of your indoor comfort is related to the control of your HVAC system. A programmable thermostat will allow you to control your indoor temperature based on your family’s daily routine, so you can keep your home comfortable throughout the day and save on energy costs.
