Winter in Colorado can be very dry. A whole house humidifier can help to alleviate dry-itchy skin, dry eyes, eczema, nose bleeds, chapped lips, congestion, static shock and other dry winter related problems. If you have hardwood floors, antique furniture or a piano you need a humidifier. Wood will crack, a piano will go out of tune. If you have swollen nasal passages, sinus headaches, asthma, a cold, the flu or respiratory infection, you should have a humidifier installed today. With a whole home humidifier, relief is in the air. Why do I need an Electronic Air Cleaner? As energy costs have risen, air tightness in our homes has increased. Statistics show that we now spend about 93% of our lives indoors. This has many homeowners looking for solutions, particularly for the control of airborne bacteria, virus, pollen, spores and micro particles. A whole house Electronic Air Cleaner works on the simple principle of electro-magnetic attraction to remove harmful, airborne particulates from your indoor air. The efficiency of standard disposable fiberglass, washable, and electrostatic air filters is under 20% down to >10.0 microns (up to MERV 4). They will collect some pollen and standard dust particles. Pleated filters range from 25-35% down to 3.0-10.0 microns (MERV 8) efficiency. They will collect mold spores and larger particles. Our electronic air cleaners are up to 95% efficient even down to 1.0 micron (up to MERV 11). They will collect all of the above plus lead dust, tobacco smoke and all bacteria. Some of the man-made synthetic media like that used in the 3M Filtrete™ air filters may be rated MERV 15. However, they hold very little dust and load up quickly and have a relatively high-pressure drop (static pressure), which can negatively affect the performance of the heating / cooling system. Thermostat Upgrades If you still have an old mercury thermostat, I think its time to upgrade. Just changing it to a digital thermostat will be an improvement in temperature accuracy and comfort. If you switch to a programmable thermostat you can lower your utility bills 5-10%. A Wi-Fi thermostat will allow you to control the temperature in your home from anywhere in the world. They can email you if your heat fails during the winter or if the A/C fails during the summer. Wi-Fi t-stats range from a basic more affordable style to a high definition screen and full communication with your Furnace or A/C. (719) 491-2971
