Your heating and cooling system is essential to the operation of your home. Ensuring it is operating at maximum efficiency will reduce energy use and cut down your utility bills, but when it really comes down to it, the primary function of your heating and air conditioning system is to maximize your home’s comfort.
Defined by Wikipedia, thermal comfort is the condition of the mind that expresses satisfaction with the thermal environment. Maintaining a standard of thermal comfort for occupants of your home is an important goal for HVAC systems and for Romaniuk Heating and Air Conditioning in Edmonton. You want to feel comfortable in your own home, but did you know that the temperature of your house can actually influence your productivity and health?
Finding your ideal temperature.
Every person will vary when it comes to what they find to be a comfortable temperature. It’s important to find a right indoor temperature, in every season, that best suits your family. A lack of thermal comfort can cause stress. For example, if it’s too warm you might feel hot and tired all of the time. If it is too cold, you will feel restless and distracted.
Romaniuk Heating & Air Conditioning will find a heating and air conditioning system that best suits your optimal thermal comfort levels. Though temperature is a major factor, they will also consider how it balances with air movement and the relative humidity in your home.
Benefits of optimized thermal and home comfort.
Your heating and cooling system can be programmed to best suit your comfort requirements and to help with energy efficiency. For example, most people sleep better if the ambient temperature is cooler. Since you’re asleep, it’s also worth the energy savings of turning down the heat.
Humidity is also something to consider. Too much humidity can make the air seem stuffy and can even lead to the development of bacteria, mildew or mold growth. Too little humidity can give you dry skin, irritated throat and sinuses. Your HVAC system will be able to humidify or dehumidify the air depending on your personal comfort level and can be set to ensure the air quality in your home is safe to breathe.
How that heated or cooled air moves through your house is also very important. Not only will your heating and cooling system bring in fresh air and remove stale air, it will keep the consistent temperature you feel most comfortable in, programmed specifically for each time of day. Having these systems regularly cleaned and maintained will ensure that dust and allergens are not blowing into your home’s indoor air.
