If you've ever struggled to hoist a five-gallon water bottle atop your office's water cooler, you may wonder whether there's a better way. Enter a unique Florida invention that cools and dehumidifies an office's air, while generating fresh, clean drinking water as a byproduct of the process. Read on to learn more about the scientific principles behind this one-of-a-kind dehumidifier and how using these devices as a complement to existing commercial air conditioning systems could save money, while assisting conservation efforts.
If your home's current central AC unit has stopped cooling your house or has needed constant repairs, you may be ready to replace it with a newer one. However, with so many options for models and sizes, you may be having trouble picking out the right one for your home. If so, use the following tips to help you select a new central air conditioning unit for your house.
1. Look for a Model with a High Efficiency Rating
HEPA, or high-efficiency particulate air, filters are a type of high-end air filter that is installed in your central heating or air conditioning system. Like all air filters, they work to remove airborne particles from your home's air supply before they manage to enter your HVAC system and then be transported throughout your home. However, HEPA filters are designed to be much better at capturing these airborne particles due to their unique design.
If your heating system is not working right or not at all, there may be a few things that you can do to fix the problem yourself. This will save time and money. Of course, without being a technician yourself, there are a limited number of things you can troubleshoot and fix, but the following are a few that most homeowners will have little trouble doing.
Check the battery in your thermostat
The efficiency of your air conditioning system depends on the quality of your air ducts. Ducts can develop leaks over time, allowing cool air to spill out of the ducts before it reaches the living spaces within your home. These leaks require your air conditioner to work harder to cool your home, which can increase your cooling costs and result in premature system failure.
Sealing your air ducts regularly can be a simple and effective way to eliminate air leaks- and the problems they bring.
