If there’s one place where you want to feel safe and comfortable, it’s your home. When something goes wrong with the HVAC system in your Spring Hill, Florida, house, however, that comfort goes out the window. Look for these three red flags that indicate a comfort issue with your HVAC system.
Poor Air Supply
Have you ever held your hands near your home’s HVAC vents to judge the force of air coming through them? Reduced airflow often relates to leaky ducts, which permit excessive heat loss and gain. If you’ve spent this winter freezing despite continually increasing your thermostat temperature, it’s time for a duct inspection.
Florida has a reputation for its year-round humid weather. If you allow that humidity to build up in your home, you probably won’t feel comfortable. Humid air feels colder in winter and hotter in summer, despite your HVAC system’s thermostat settings. A whole-home dehumidifier works in the background, cutting on and off as necessary. It detects humidity levels in your house and keeps them within comfortable levels.
High humidity can also encourage mold growth, leave damp spots on your walls, buckle wood flooring, and facilitate sickness. Controlling humidity will increase comfort for your home’s residents.
Every home needs efficient ventilation to expel stale air and bring in fresh air. Homes with inadequate ventilation might cause discomfort for their occupants, from foul odors and temperature fluctuations to uncomfortable dampness and increased allergy symptoms.
Most homes need ventilation in the roof as well as in all the “wet areas,” such as kitchens, laundry rooms, and baths. In addition to improving indoor air quality, better ventilation can also help reduce high humidity.
