Let’s discover some of the most popular HVAC accessories that you should consider to have ready and equipt in your home:

Smart thermostat. These gadgets are a great addition to your home. They come in a range of models and prices to fit absolutely any budget, style or need. They can be smart, Bluetooth-connected, and programmable, and sometimes you can even reach them and change settings from your phone. Smart thermostats often have top-of-the-line sensors and detectors to make sure that each room is to your temperature liking. Some higher-grade smart thermostats even have cameras that can sense when you’re at home and when you’re away in order to set the temperature accordingly to help save you energy and money. Forgot to turn off the A/C when you left home? No worries, with a smart thermostat, you can make last-minute changes from anywhere.

Air purifiers. HVAC systems can get seriously dirty. All the air in your home will pass through it at some point, often bringing pollen, dirt, bacteria, and mold spores along with it. This is where air purifiers come into play. Of course, your HVAC system already has air filters built in (that need to be changed!), but adding that extra layer of protection with an air purifier can really amp up the air-cleanliness game. This can be especially helpful if you or someone else in the home experiences difficulty with things like asthma or COPD–air purifiers can really help the quality of air and therefore positively impact the quality of life for someone with respiratory problems.

Energy recovery ventilators. Many new homes are built with a great deal of insulation to help make them more energy efficient. However, with more insulation comes more material in which dust, dirt, pollen, and other pollutants can become trapped. Although you may have never heard of this helpful contraption, energy recovery ventilators (ERV) can be an amazing tool to help keep your home efficient. These machines exchange the air in your home and use that energy to help clean and sanitize the air. An ERV can dispose of viruses, microorganisms and risky natural compounds that can get sucked into your HVAC system’s air filter. It can minimize illnesses, allergic reaction symptoms, dizziness, headaches, and different issues with the aid of doing away with stagnant air. It can even:

  • Help preserve the cleanliness of your ductwork
  • Minimize dust buildup around the home
  • Extend the life of your HVAC system

Dehumidifiers. Humidity can be a great tool for your home and your health! However, humidity can seriously run a muck if it is left unmanaged, which can not only make your home very uncomfortable and downright muggy but can also cause damage to your HVAC system and other belongings in your house that doesn’t manage well with high humidity. If you have problems with humidity, especially here in Texas, a dehumidifier can really help keep your home comfortable and help preserve the health of your belongings. Dehumidifiers can come in many shapes and sizes depending on your need a budget. If you’re looking for a large-scale solution, it’s possible to have a dehumidifier built into your HVAC system. Just looking for something small? Dehumidifiers can be quite easy to find anywhere online and in stores, making great portable options.
