When it comes to comfort, most people are concerned with having an HVAC unit that can distribute heat and cool air equally throughout their home. Rather than struggle with window air conditioners for each room and radiators that cause one room to be hotter than the other, zoning systems allow you to adjust and maintain the temperature in different rooms without sacrificing comfort in another.

The following is a list of just some of the benefits that come with HVAC zoning systems:

Comfort: HVAC zoning allows you to control the comfort in each room of your home or building. Rather than change the temperature throughout the whole house, you can adjust the thermostat for each zone depending on your location and preferance.

Convenience: Having a thermostat in each zone can be extremely convenient when it comes to keeping up with your comfort. If your home or building isn’t zoned, you probably only have one thermostat in a central location. That means you must constantly move around to adjust the temperature of your home! With zoning systems, instead of traveling downstairs, you will likely only have to travel a few feet to the nearest thermostat.

Conservation: Zoning systems are a great way to reduce your monthly utility bills. This is because you have the ability to turn off the heat or A/C in rooms that are not being used!

Are you ready to maximize comfort in your home? At Airtech of Stamford, we are available to install residential zone control systems! Our technicians will work with you to make sure that the rooms in your home maintain a comfortable temperature all throughout the year without requiring too much effort on your part.

Common Causes of HVAC Problems

HVAC emergencies can happen at any time, but the real question is why do they happen? Your heating, cooling and ventilation system is made up of several components that all work together to maximize comfort in your home, so even if just one piece doesn’t work properly, the efficiency of your entire system could be compromised.

Have you ever found yourself hot with no A/C or cold with no heat? See below for common causes of these unfavorable HVAC problems:

  1. Thermostat: If your heating or cooling system isn’t working, check to make sure that your thermostat is functioning properly. A broken thermostat is one of the top reasons HVAC systems fail, but it’s also one of the easiest fixes!
  2. Filter: Another quick fix, dirty filters can quickly cause your HVAC system to perform poorly. We suggest changing your filters at least once a month during high use seasons to keep your system working as it should.
  3. Refrigerant: When your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be keeping you cool, check to make sure your refrigerant isn’t leaking. Refrigerant is necessary for your system to produce cool air, so if you’re losing it to a leak, your unit will produce air that is no where near cool.
  4. Breaker: When you just can’t seem to find the problem, check to make sure that your breaker hasn’t tripped. Sometimes all it takes is the flip of a switch to get your HVAC system running again.

Even if you feel like you were able to fix the problem on your own, it’s always best to check with an HVAC professional.

Are you taking the initiative to go green in your home? For some, going green sounds like an intimidating task, but in reality, it’s actually quite simple! Throughout the summer, it can be easy to get caught up in using your air conditioner to keep cool, but there are a variety of other eco-friendly approaches to beating the heat. Thanks to WebMD, we’ve collected a few ways that you can go green in your home for the rest of the summer:

  • When you’re not home, close your windows and blinds to keep your home cool without using your air conditioner. 
  • On cool nights, open your windows to help air circulate throughout your home.
  • Use heavy appliances such as irons and washing machines late at night or early in the morning. Since these items give off heat, it’s best to avoid using them during the hottest parts of the day.
  • Switch to energy-efficient light bulbs; not only do they generate less heat, but they’re also good for the environment!
  • Keep air conditioner filters clean! Dirty filters will limit airflow and cause your system to work harder and run longer.
  • Set your thermostat as high as possible without sacrificing comfort. When you’re home, we suggest keeping your thermostat at around 78 degrees!

By following these simple tips, you can create a more energy efficient home that still keeps you cool!

At Airtech of Stamford, we offer indoor air comfort solutions for residential, industrial and commercial customers. It is our goal to ensure that you feel completely comfortable in your home all throughout the year, so we will work to provide you with the best heating and cooling system possible.

What comes to mind when you think of “air quality” and “pollution?” When prompted with these terms, most people tend to relate them to something outdoors. Truth be told, however, the air inside our homes and buildings is also susceptible to pollution, and it often proves to more polluted then the air outside. Since we spend a lot of our time in our homes, schools and office buildings, it’s extremely important to make sure we’re breathing clean air that is free of pollutants. The following are a few tipsthat you can use to help improve your indoor air quality to ensure that you’re not exposed to any harmful allergens or pollutants:

  1. Keep Floors Clean: By cleaning your floors routinely, you can help prevent a dust build up from forming throughout your home. According to WebMD, chemicals and allergens can accumulate in household dust, so by keeping your floors clean, you help reduce the amount of pollutants you are exposed to.
  2. Monitor Humidity: Homes and buildings that are humid are more likely to develop mold or dust mites. By maintaining a humidity level of 30 to 50%, you can keep such pollutants under control. Consider using a dehumidifier to help reduce the amount of moisture in your home.
  3. Choose Fragrance-Free Products: Although cleaning products are often purchased because of their fresh scent, synthetic fragrances actually emit several chemicals into the air during use. To keep your air clean, look for fragrance free or naturally scented products instead.

Are you struggling with your indoor air quality? At Airtech of Stamford, we can help! We are available to assist those in both the commercial and residential markets with their indoor air quality by providing top of the line air quality and filtration systems.
