Even though we live in south Florida, we do experience winter weather (these past few weeks, for example). We might be experiencing warmer weather than the majority of the country right now, but it is still colder than recent winters have been—meaning homeowners are turning on their heating systems, particularly at night as the temperatures drop into the 30s and 40s. And doing so when you have been simply turning the AC off (instead of switching to Heating Mode) in previous years affects your bottom line.
As the saying goes, a clean home is a happy home. Well, that starts with the air you’re breathing. Clean, high-quality indoor air is vital to keeping you and your family healthy (and happy). Adding an in-duct air purification system to your HVAC system is one of the best ways to improve air quality.
Although electric furnaces are not as common as heat pumps and natural gas furnaces, they are more common in south Florida than in colder areas of the nation. Generally, electric furnaces are not as efficient or powerful as natural gas furnaces, but living in a tropical climate means that homes don’t have the same heating needs as northern homes. Because there are no gas lines and many homeowners consider them “easy” heating system solutions, maintenance visits are often skipped or postponed. However, it’s important to remember to schedule your system’s maintenance service visit annually to ensure your system remains reliable and efficient.
For most homes, it’s usually the tiny parts that create costly and inconvenient issues with your heating and cooling system. One of these small parts that plays a large role in proper system functioningis the air filter.
