Ways to Keep Your Home Healthy

Written by: Metro Air

Winter isn’t over yet and that means there are plenty of viruses still circulating the air. If you are trying to reduce your risk of illness and keep a healthy climate in your home, here are some solutions.

#1: Keep your temperature even.
Determine what the ideal temperature of your home is and stick to it. Using a programmable thermostat is one of the best ways to do this. These innovative thermostats allow you to control the temperature of your home with incredible accuracy, no matter what time of day or night it is.  Control these wireless thermostats from anywhere in the world that you are.  They also work alongside any existing heating system! Program the thermostat to your desired temperature and you won’t have to worry about it again.

#2: Breathe cleaner air.
Did you know the air inside your home is often dirtier and more polluted than outside air? One way that you can bolster your indoor air quality and breathe cleaner air is by using an air purification system in your home. These systems zap and kill allergens, mold spores, bacteria, viruses, and more. That means you’re truly breathing cleaner air. And, you will reduce your risk of exposure to illness and germs. Here are the details about some of our favorite air purification systems.

Evolution® Perfect Air ™ Purifier:
This system is incredibly efficient and cleans the air in your home in seconds. One of the best features is the Capture and Kills™ technology that 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 catches up to 96% of airborne germs and pathogens that cause the flu, common cold, and strep. This system is great for smaller spaces.

Can a New Thermostat Save Money?

Written by: Metro Air

 

Being a homeowner can get expensive and saving money is always a great thing when possible!  Did you know that programmable thermostats can help save you money? These are becoming more and more standard in homes now because of their amazing benefits.

Replacing a manual thermostat is a good idea, especially when the fall and winter weather brings cold, frigid days and nights. Cold weather means you will be running your heating system almost non-stop. This time of year, homeowners usually see a spike in their utility bill. A programmable thermostat can help! They will help you adjust the temperature to a degree that matches exactly what you want, when you want it. No need to keep your heat on while you’re away at work, so program the thermostat to turn down slightly when you’re gone. Then, schedule it to turn back up right before you get home so you can walk into a warm, comfortable space. Some homeowners turn the furnace way down, then think that the system isn’t keeping up because it takes an hour or two to get to the temperature you designate. There is no need to turn the system completely off or down 10 degrees – all you have to do is reduce the set point by a few degrees to see a reduction in your utility bill.

Keeping your furnace running all day and night means that it’s working hard. But programming it to adjust as needed will help prolong the life of the system by not putting it to use when not necessary. Not to mention, you won’t be wasting energy. That means you’re doing something great for the environment.

A new higher end thermostat also has unique diagnostic functions that can help ensure that your equipment is operating at peak efficiency. Some can even detect when the filter is dirty or if the unit is short cycling. New WIFI thermostats can also tell you if your furnace breaks down or has an issue while you’re away, which could prevent serious damage from happening to your house while you’re at work or on vacation.

A programmable thermostat is well worth the investment! It will help evenly heat your home and will work alongside any existing heating system that you currently have. They are affordable and are a great upgrade to add! Our experienced team at Metro Air Heating & Cooling can help you with programmable thermostat options. Some of these include:
