Five Things Home Owners Need to Know about Humidity
clear
  1. Modern homes are built very tightly so that outside air cannot enter and inside air cannot leave.  
  2. Most modern energy saving gas or oil furnaces have their own air supply via a plastic pipe to the outside.
  3. Humid air from showers and hot water use has no where go unless steps are taken to exhaust this humid stale air through bathroom fans. However, this air has been heated or cooled by your HVAC system. If it is exhausted to the outside energy is wasted.
  4. Fantech HRV 67 CFMDevices are available that can recover this energy. They are called Heat Recovery Ventilators or Heat Exchangers.  They serve a double purpose. They bring in fresh air from outside to replace the humid air being exhausted and at the same time transfer the heat or cold from the exiting air to the incoming air.
  5. High humidity inside causes many problems like mold in a home besides being uncomfortable.signature

What you should know about HVAC Brands
clear

Tony Anderson, Partner, discusses why parts availability is important in selecting and HVAC brand.

When purchasing a unit be careful with your brand selection.  Make sure you get a major manufacturer such as Trane, Carrier, Rheem, or Lennox. They are good units and parts are available. Steer clear of other units that do not have a good parts system. What I mean by that is that there are some units where every part they have is a week away. They can be under warranty and that’s great, but if they don’t have any in stock it’s no good to any of us. So a lot of the time we have to order this part because it’s a warranty part and then wait a week to get it. But you don’t have that problem with Trane, Carrier, Lennox, or Rheem.  Make sure you stick with the major manufacturers.
