Remodeling Your Home? Don’t Forget the HVAC System.

Written by: Metro Air

Remodeling your home is a huge undertaking! It requires planning, paying attention to details, and some creativity, too. If you are about to embark on a home remodel, remember to keep your home’s heating and cooling system in mind. Home remodels are a great time to replace your system or even change your system completely. Many people find that heat pumps are a great option.

Adding ductwork for a traditional heating and cooling system will impact your budget by increasing the cost of your remodel. But with a ductless heat pump system, you don’t need ductwork. Not to mention, they are affordable, energy efficient, and provide both heating and cooling in one system. That translates to incredible convenience and saved money in utility costs each year.

Home ductwork gets dusty and dirty over time. That material then transfers through the ducts into your home, which negatively impacts asthma or allergies. But because ductless systems don’t rely on ductwork in your home, less contaminants will make their way inside. This helps with better indoor air quality.

Whether you’re just putting an addition onto your house or doing a full home remodel, a heat pump is easy to add into your remodeling plans. It can be installed quickly, so you can move onto the other parts of the remodel that take longer.

Your remodel can be exactly how you envisioned it! And once it’s done, you will be able to sit back and enjoy the comfort of your new home – at whatever temperature you want. Our outstanding team of licensed heating and cooling experts at Metro Air Heating & Cooling will help you decide which Bryant heat pump is right for your newly remodeled space.

Tips for Staying Comfortable While Working from Home

Written by: Metro Air

With the pandemic still impacting group gatherings and in-office work, many people are continuing to work from home. Working from home has plenty of ups and downs and staying comfortable throughout the workday is key. Here, we’ll offer tips on how to stay comfortable in your home, no matter what the weather decides to do outside.

Tip #1: Don’t forget about your indoor air quality.
Airborne pollutants and contaminants are everywhere. That’s why it’s important to keep the air you breathe as clean as possible. Whether it’s mold spores, bacteria, allergens, or other viruses that make their way into your home, dirty air can lead to poor health. But there is good news! We carry and install a variety of air purification systems that will clean the air you breathe, including:

Evolution® Perfect Air ™ Purifier:
This useful system can clean the air in your home in seconds. One of the most innovative features of the system is the Capture and Kills™ technology. This catches up to 99% airborne germs, viruses, bacteria, and mold, then zaps them with an electrical charge to eradicate them.

Bryant Preferred™ Series Air Purifier:
This system also uses the Capture and Kills™ technology and traps up to 96% of airborne germs and pathogens that cause the flu, common cold, and strep. This system is great for smaller living spaces.

We also carry and install HVAC UV lamps! The Bryant Preferred™ Series UV Lamp kills bacteria and mold on the cooling coil of your system. They require little to no maintenance and come with a 5-year limited warranty. Because of their effectiveness in eliminating bacteria, you will have peace of mind knowing you’re doing your best to keep you and your family healthy this autumn.

Tip #2: Install a new energy efficient furnace system.
As the fall weather returns and we look at cooler months ahead, you’ll need a reliable heating system. If your furnace is more than a decade old, there’s a good chance it is on its way out. Furnaces come in a variety of sizes. And we will work with you to determine which one works best for your home. The systems today are built with energy efficiency in mind, too. That means you won’t see excess use of energy during the cold months. This translates to a healthier environment and saved money in utility bills over time.  We are proud Bryant dealers and will work to find a system that works for your home’s unique layout and most importantly, your budget.

Working at home brings many benefits. But, it’s even more enjoyable when you have a system that provides you the comfortable temperature you desire and the healthy air you deserve. So call us today to talk about your furnace repair or replacement, or an air purification system install. We are standing by to help!
