Improve Your Air Conditioning System

Monday, April 29th, 2013

Air filtration, dehumidifiers, energy recovery ventilators, and zone control systems are great ways to improve the air conditioning in your Savannah home. They can make your air fresh, clean, and comfortable, in addition to cool. If you are at all concerned with the levels of humidity in your home, or with the lack of ventilation, then you might wish to consider one of these add-ons. For more information about how to improve your AC in Savannah, call AAction Air!

Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can improve your AC:

  • Energy Recovery VentilatorAbbreviated ERV, these devices are designed to improve the ventilation in your home. They exhaust stale air from inside your home and introduce clean outside air, while also preventing the majority of any energy loss by transferring the cold to the incoming air. They are a great way to improve the ventilation in your home, while minimizing the associated energy loss.
  • Dehumidifier: As you probably know already, your AC already dehumidifies the air as part of its process of cooling. Unfortunately, this is not its main task, and the humidity during the hottest days of the summer can often make our indoor cool air stuffy and moist. This can often lead to the increased risk of dust mite growth in our homes, often in places we can’t see, like inside our ductwork, and within the walls.
  • Zone control system: If you currently have central air, you may have wondered why you need to cool your downstairs living room at night when everyone is upstairs. This is a common concern of homeowners. A zone control system divides your existing ductwork in damper-controlled zones with individual thermostats so that you can maximize your comfort and energy efficiency.

We hope this gives you some ideas on how to improve your AC for this summer. For more information about our Savannah, GA air conditioning services, call AAction Air today!
