BENEFITS OF DUCTLESS HEATING AND COOLING

Should you find yourself in the market for a new heating or cooling system, we advise you to take your time and to really get to know your options. There has been a lot of innovation in home comfort systems over time, and you may not be completely up to date with all that is available in the residential HVAC sector today. One option that more and more homeowners find themselves drawn to is ductless heating and cooling. This method of heating and cooling may not be for everyone – no method is, in fact – but it is a great fit for many. Here are a few tips from the HVAC experts at Expert Air regarding the ways in which using ductless mini splits in Houston can benefit you.

First of all, in order to understand the benefits of ductless heating and cooling, it is beneficial to understand how such systems work. Rather than utilizing ductwork in order to distribute conditioned air throughout a residence, such systems instead use individual, wall mounted blowers. These blowers connect to an outdoor unit, which is much the same as in a traditional split central system. However, ductless mini splits can offer much more than these more basic systems.

For instance, ductless split systems can utilize heat pump technology, which allows them to both heat and cool properties for year round comfort, all while using just one system. This is of great convenience, and our relatively mild winter weather really lends itself to such a heating method. Additionally, the fact that there is no ductwork to suffer air leaks means that you can reduce the risk of an inefficient heating and cooling performance.

Furthermore, ductless heating and cooling systems can also help homeowners to maintain great indoor air quality in their homes. Air ducts can be infiltrated by airborne pollutants, and those very same ducts can then distribute those pollutants throughout a living space. You’ll have no such issues when you go ductless. Plus, because each blower is controlled independently of the others, you can maintain different temperatures in different areas of your home. This allows residents therein to live in an environment suited to their personal temperature preferences.

We are more than happy to provide you with the information you need to determine if going ductless is right for you. We look forward to hearing from you.

HOW UV GERMICIDAL LIGHTS COMPARE TO OTHER INDOOR AIR QUALITY PRODUCTS

Your air conditioner and heating system contains an air filter which helps to filter pollutants out of the air you breathe. Air is sucked into the AC system from your home before it is conditioned so that your air conditioner is not damaged and to make the air that comes out a little bit cleaner. But this filter cannot eliminate every contaminant from your air. An additional indoor air quality system is necessary when members of your family are affected by the dirty air, such as UV germicidal lights.

 

Indoor air quality products help to eliminate additional smaller particles that sometimes make their way into the ducts. Or in some cases, they eliminate only a certain type of contaminant. This is true of UV germicidal lights, which kill microorganisms which cause adverse health effects when inhaled. This includes bacteria and viruses which are known to aggravate the sinuses, cause illness, and irritate allergies or asthma.

 

UV germicidal lights differ from other indoor air quality products in that they specifically target biological contaminants. UV light kills small organic matter. While you may go unharmed laying out in the sun for 30 minutes, small organic matter like bacteria can be killed instantly. One portion of your home that could contain bacteria is the indoor air handler, since condensation collects on your indoor air handler during the cooling process. The UV germicidal lights are installed at the air handler to eliminate living organisms already present or those moving through the ducts.

 

If you need a new IAQ system then you should first discuss your needs with a professional. Air purification systems are certainly not all alike and you may need a different type of indoor air quality system depending on the conditions in your home. UV germicidal lights are usually recommended for those with severe allergies, asthma, or compromised immune systems.

 

Call the technicians at Expert Air for any of your indoor air quality needs.

 

UV germicidal lights are not right for every home, and another type of air purification system may work better for you. Seek out our services to determine the best solution for your home in Crosby, TX.
