Selecting the right furnace filter for your heating and cooling system is crucial when it comes to producing and sustaining a healthy, clean and pure home environment. For those who don’t know, or just need a reminder, furnace filters remove dust, dirt, pollen, allergens, bacteria and other air pollutants from your home’s air – enhancing indoor air quality for you and your family. Just selecting the correct filter is not enough to guarantee safe air. You must also make sure you are following the guidelines and conditions based on your manufacture’s manual. This will ensure your system runs efficiently and effectively.Below are the most important factors to consider when selecting an air filter for your home:
Now that winter is finally starting to settle in, you’ve probably already heard that it’s time to have your heating system inspected twice a year for air quality and system efficiency… But another important tip to keep in mind is the importance of having a backup generator!
WHAT DOES THIS UNUSUALLY COLD WEATHER MEAN FOR YOUR HVAC SYSTEM?
This winter has been a little colder than usual. We are just trying to get through it and hope our HVAC system will do the same. Most systems are designed to “weather” the “weather”. But there are times in colder conditions that special maintenance is necessary to keep everything running smoothly.
In addition to suffering from constant symptoms of allergies, you may want to consider a dehumidifier if you have some obvious signs of high humidity in certain rooms or areas of your home, including:
With gas fired heating systems old and new burn off propane and natural gas. They create carbon monoxide gases. As long as the heating furnace is removing the carbon gases you are safe from harm.
If you commonly get allergies, you know that they can get rather miserable at times. When you live in the south (especially Counce, Tennessee), you are use to a humid climate, there are many triggers for these things—dust mites, mold, mildew, and seasonal allergies. If you find that you are suffering a lot, a good dehumidifier can help–in more ways than one.
1. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING GEOTHERMAL ENERGY?
Several attributes make it a good source of energy.
First, it's clean. Energy can be extracted without burning a fossil fuel such as coal, gas, or oil. Geothermal fields produce only about one-sixth of the carbon dioxide that a relatively clean natural-gas-fueled power plant produces, and very little if any, of the nitrous oxide or sulfur-bearing gases. Binary plants, which are closed cycle operations, release essentially no emissions.
As your family settles into the back-to-school routine and those mornings turn chilly, thoughts slowly turn to pumpkins, fallen leaves and keeping warm. But you shouldn't take for granted staying warm while keeping your energy bills reasonable.
