There are a variety of upgrade options available to you that will dramatically improve your home's comfort level, air quality and overall energy efficiency.
Here is a list of the most common upgrade options we install for our customers.
Dehumidifiers - Dehumidifiers can be used to remove excess moisture (humidity) from the air which will allow you to operate your air conditioner less and still feel comfortable. If your comfortable now at 74 degrees, a dehumidifier could allow you to be comfortable at 76 or 77 degrees which means your system runs less often and uses less electricity.
A/C Enhancers - Similar to a dehumidifier, it removes excess moisture from the air. The difference is that it's easy to install on an existing system without a large upgrade expense and can be installed quickly while the service technician is in your home.
Advanced Air Filters - We have a variety of filtration options that do a much better job than the cheap throw-away filters you get at the local hardware store.
MIRV 16 Products - If you want the cleanest air possible, you will want to look at the IQAir Perect 16 Air Purification System. It's the best prodcut on the market for keeping your home's air clean and family protected from allergens and airborne bacteria.
Electronic Filters - These filters are electronically charged and can capture up to 94% of the dust and allergens in your home. These filters are 10 times more efficient than normal throw-away filters. This type of filter can easily be added to your existing system.
Extended Life Filters - These filters have a larger surface area which allows for filter changes to be done yearly instead of monthly. These filters may or may not be easily added to your current system depending on your current system configuration.
UV Lamps - Ultraviolet lamps can be installed into your existing equipment. Basically, the lamp bathes your air conditioner's cooling coil in fresh sun light. This kills mold spores before they can take hold, which improves indoor air quality and reduces build-up on your coil.
Air Purifiers - Similar to an air filter, air purifiers improve the air as it passes through your cooling system. The difference is that air purifiers have more advanced technology to capture and kill harmful bacteria that ordinary filters have trouble stopping. We have products available that can re-purify, not just filter, your home's air up to 8 times each hour. This technology is similar to what is being used in hospitals today.
Zoning - Adding zones to your air conditioning system can allow you to easily control the temperature balance across multiple rooms. If you have areas of your home that are warmer or cooler than the rest of the home, zoning may be a great option for you.
If your are interested in learning more about any of these upgrade options, we will be glad to have a Jon Wayne Comfort Advisor come to your home to discuss them in detail. They can also look at your existing system to see which options could end up saving you the most money through energy efficiency.
