Indoor Air Quality Systems
Keeping a nice and cozy home goes beyond dusting and having your thermostat set for your comfort level. The quality of the air inside your home can help you breathe a tad easier and make your home even more comfy.
A well-sealed and insulated home can be great for your wallet with lower utility bills. Unfortunately, this can lead to comfort issues when the same air circulates repeatedly through your home. It can also result in humidity imbalances and make your home susceptible to damage from mold. That said, you’ll be glad to know you can have an energy-efficient home that is also comfortable. Landmark Heating & Air Conditioning in Memphis wants to help!
Provide a constant flow of fresh air.
To make your home as comfortable as possible and to decrease health-threatening pollutants, your home needs an uninterrupted influx of fresh air. Opening a window isn’t always realistic and can invite pollen and other allergens into your home. Putting in a whole-home ventilation system is a better remedy. It mixes fresh outside air with your conditioned indoor air.
Keep humidity under control.
For improved comfort and health, we advise keeping your home’s relative humidity levels between 30% and 60%. A thermostat with humidity control can help. Here are some signs that might suggest your home is too humid:
- Consistently damp areas
- Musty odors
- Condensation stains on the ceiling
- Condensation or frost on windows
- Sticky or clammy feeling in the air
- Peeling wallpaper
- You have to run your air conditioner more often to maintain a comfortable environment
Whenever the air in your home is excessively dry, you can also have problems. In the winter, indoor relative humidity can dip into single digits—similar to that of the world’s most barren deserts. These symptoms could alert you that the humidity in your home is too low:
- Recurrent allergies or respiratory illnesses
- Scratchy, sore throat or excessive cough
- Dry, irritated nasal passages
- Dry, itchy skin
- Chapped lips
- Static shocks
- Cracked, peeling wallpaper
- Warped or cracked wood
- Damage to household furnishings
