Accessories for HVAC Systems to Add This Summer

How to extend the lifespan of furnaces

Your HVAC system gets the job done. However, you may want more than just cold air. Here are some smart HVAC accessories for your residential HVAC system.

1. Air Purifier

An HVAC accessory to consider is an air purifier. Air purifiers neutralize contaminants that pass through HVAC systems, thereby removing them from the indoor air environment.
Not only do they remove substances like dust and pet dander, but bacteria and viruses as well. As such, by installing an air purifier, you can greatly improve both the safety and comfort of your home.
There are all sorts of air purifiers out there on the market today. These run the gamut from air filters to ionizers to UV light machines and more. All have benefits and will contribute to making your home a relaxing place.

2. Smart Thermostat

Looking to automate temperature changes in your home? Perhaps you’d like to control the temperature of your home from a remote location? If so, a smart thermostat would serve you well.
Smart thermostats can be operated and programmed from phones, allowing for quick changes at any time. You can program your smart thermostat to change temperatures at, say, 5:00 PM, or 7:00 AM, or otherwise. This enables you to save money on energy costs and also ensures that your home is adequately cool or warm when you need it to be.
Another benefit of smart thermostats is that they allow you to track your energy usage. This allows you to strategically plan your HVAC use throughout each day.

3. Zoning System

Wish that you could set different temperatures in different rooms throughout your home? Unfortunately, a standard central AC doesn’t allow for this. What you might not know, though, is that there is a way.
This way is known as a zoning system. It can be integrated into your existing HVAC, allowing you to set different temperatures in different parts of your home. The system strategically blocks and directs air so to ensure desired temperatures in every room of your house.
No more freezing in the kitchen just so you can be comfortable in your bedroom. Install a zoning system and reap the benefits of total comfort in all portions of your home.

4. Dehumidifier

When the summer rolls around, humidity levels can reach dreadful highs. This results in perpetual sweating and a feeling as if you’re constantly walking through water. It’s uncomfortable, to say the least.
While air conditioners alone can help to reduce humidity levels within a home, they’re often not enough. As such, they need to be supplemented with dehumidifiers.
Dehumidifiers are specifically designed to remove humidity from the air. They capture humidity in a storage tank and then filter the water from the humidity out of the home.
In doing this, dehumidifiers create more comfortable homes, better smelling homes, and more functional homes.

5. Ductless HVAC Units

Another accessory you might consider adding to your HVAC system is a ductless HVAC unit. These units are mounted to the interior walls of homes, thus providing rooms with direct cooling or heating. They’re essentially permanent versions of window ACs but much more efficient and effective.
Having a ductless HVAC unit can be beneficial in situations in which you don’t want to heat or cool your entire home. Let’s say you only want to alter the temperature in your bedroom. A ductless system would accommodate this and save you money on energy costs in the process.
