Ways to Improve Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality in Winter

Monday, January 11th, 2016

The quality of the air in homes tends to suffer during the winter. Although spring is the time most people connect with allergy and asthma issues, the trouble in winter doesn’t come from airborne contaminates outside a home, but from contaminants that originate inside a home. For example, insulation and building material can be the source of chemicals and radon inside, and there are many cleaning and hygiene products that give off harmful pollutants. Natural gas appliances can produce harmful byproducts as well. These contaminants do not have an easy escape from a home in winter because of the heavy sealing designed to keep the heating system energy efficient.

Is an Energy Recovery Ventilator Useful in Cold Weather as Well as Warm?

Monday, August 24th, 2015

Life in Georgia presents a significant challenge to maintaining indoor comfort in a house, since we have to deal with a large range of temperatures during the year. To keep homes comfortable requires effective insulation and heat sealing to keep out hot temperatures out during the summer and trapping heat indoors during winter. This has the unfortunate side effect of preventing fresh air from circulating through a house, creating unpleasantly stale and humid air.

The Benefits of High Velocity Mini Duct Systems

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Not too long ago, installing whole-home air conditioning into homes without ductwork could be very costly and time-consuming. These days, there are options on the market for homes without ducts, and one of these options is a high velocity mini duct system. There are a number of benefits to installing a high velocity system, including the fact that this type of system is an especially good choice for retro-fitting older homes.

What Is a High Velocity System?

A high velocity air conditioning system is built similarly to a traditional AC, but a few key differences change how the system delivers the cool air to your home. As the name indicates, the air coming into your home does so at a much higher velocity: approximately 2,000 feet per second. With the air coming in this fast, the vented cool air mixes with the warm air in your living spaces, making the room cooler and drier very quickly.

How Is a High Velocity System Installed?

One of the reasons a high velocity system is great for retro-fitting is that it uses flexible vents with narrow diameters to deliver the cool air. The diameter of the vents is 2”, and the flexible tubing can be snaked into wall spaces that can’t accommodate regular ductwork. Instead of using registers in rooms, outlets the same size as the diameter of the venting are placed in strategic places, such as up high on walls or in corners, and finished with a trim that can match your décor. The indoor unit is compact – in fact, it can fit inside a closet – and the outdoor unit is similar to that of a traditional AC system.

Benefits of a High Velocity System

  • Fits virtually any space – the flexibility of the tubing and the unobtrusive outlets allow for a high velocity system to fit just about anywhere.
  • Quiet delivery – even though the air comes out fast, the tubing is designed to reduce air noise, making the system very quiet.
  • Little to no intrusive construction work – the tubing for the ventwork is designed to be both durable and very flexible, allowing for ducts to be routed through walls, crawlspaces and other tight places in your home.
  • Can remove 30% more humidity – because high velocity systems cool by aspiration, humidity removal is up to 30% better as compared to other AC systems.

If you are in an older home and are looking for whole-home AC, a high velocity mini duct system in Peachtree City may be just what you need.

Premier Indoor Comfort Systems has been installing air conditioners for customers since 1999, and we can help you with your high velocity mini duct system. Call today!

Ways to Tell You Need Duct Cleaning

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

You should have regular duct cleaning done every one or two years to make sure you have high indoor air quality, as well as a clean, efficient heating and cooling system. However, sometimes your ducts can get especially congested with dust and dirt and you’ll need to schedule cleaning earlier.

Here are some tips from our Peachtree City, GA duct cleaning specialists at Premier Indoor Comfort Systems on how you can detect the need for cleaning:

  • Make a physical check: Take a small mirror or a digital camera and go to one of the more easily accessible vents in your home. Unscrew the grill from the vent. Reach down inside the vent with the mirror or camera. Look into the mirror or snap a flash picture with the camera. The image you get back will give you a good idea of what the interior of most of your ductwork looks like. If see something that looks like the lint catcher of a dryer after a load, then you have ducts that need cleaning… soon.
  • Your heating/cooling bills increase: Even a thin layer of dust on the interior of your ductwork will create friction against the passage of air from your furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump. This will make the system work harder and drain power. If you’ve seen a rise in your utility bills that you can’t account for because of malfunctions, breakdowns, or increased use, you may have dirty ducts.
  • Noticeable flu- or cold-like symptoms: If you notice that people in your home are experiencing symptoms that resemble allergies, the flu, or the common cold, contamination in the ductwork could be lowering the quality of your air. Look for headaches, nausea, runny nose, eye irritation, skin dryness, breathing problems, and difficulty sleeping. People in your house who have allergies will experience worse symptoms.
  • The house is always dusty: If a dirt-clogged ventilation system is constantly circulating dust through your home, you will have a hard time keeping it clean no matter how much sweeping and vacuuming you do. A consistent layer of dust over everything could mean you need to hit the source: the ducts.

This is a job for professionals

Sticking the hose of a vacuum cleaner into an open vent won’t get your ductwork clean. You need experts with agitation equipment and power vacuums to access your whole network and eliminate the ground-in dirt. If you think you have a dust contamination in your ductwork, contact Premier Indoor Comfort Systems and speak to our indoor air quality experts. They will help you schedule duct testing and cleaning in Peachtree City, GA that will give you clean air, a cleaner house, and efficient heating and cooling.
