Now that the snow has thawed as well as the afternoons of moderate sunshine are waiting just around the bend, I think it’s time to start our yearly maintenance job on the house. I do roof inspections, electrical fixes, plumbing adjustments, lake house painting, as well as anything else I manage to remember after several months of being locked in by the freeze. But perhaps the most important round of maintenance each year is the repairs as well as adjustments that I do on our heating as well as cooling system. I’m fortunate enough to have a state-of-the-art wood stove that has it’s legitimately own HVAC duct attached so it can be utilized as a central gas furnace with room control as well as everything. In this sense, the job on our heating setup is minimal since I’m not paying to regularly maintenance fragile components in an electric or gas powered gas furnace. But our air conditioning system is another story altogether. It’s nearing the 10 year mark as well as it’s chugging performance in the Summer months is a testament to that. I decided to bite the bullet as well as finally update our central air conditioning system this year, however I knew I wanted to add UV lights to improve our air quality even more. These bulbs emit seriously bright ultraviolet light that literally destroys any microbes or particles that pass over as well as around them in your system’s air stream. They’re recognizably great at cleaning your air of mold or bacteria. Since I have had shoddy breathing the last few years, I figured I’d give them a shot. If nothing else, they just add more value to our lake house if I ever decide to sell it anytime soon.
