With all the concerns over the Coronavirus, I’m more sad about the air quality in my home, and living in the northeastern area of the country, our weather is dire just about year round.
Both of us switch from relying on the gas furnace to running the cooling system with particularly little break in-between. It’s necessary to keep the windows shut narrow and seal the beach house to prevent energy waste. I’ve made every effort to reduce the cost of temperature control. Between the added insulation, current windows, caulk and weatherstripping, I’ve created a tightly sealed thermal envelope. That’s good for reducing the responsibilities of the heating and cooling system but awful for indoor air conditions. I’ve gotten rid of essential ventilation and trapped contaminants in the house. The same dust, pet dander, smells, bacteria, mold spores and pollen gets circulated by the system over and over again. If there’s any allergens within the heating and cooling system, they can get added to the mix. I’ve done my research into all the unusual types of indoor air conditions accessories. There’s ventilation systems, UV lights, humidifier and dehumidifiers available. I’ve decided to invest in an in-duct whole-house air purifier. This type of purifier introduces a high concentration of positive and disadvantage ions that link to particulate, making it heavier and easier to filter out. Plus, those ions kill microorganisms and combat smells. The whole-house air purifier creates no harmful ozone or chemicals, operates silently and requires no ongoing maintenance. It accommodates any size of beach beach house and any style of HVAC system. I’ve called a local HVAC supplier to handle the upgrade for me.
