In the section where I live, the weather is quite cold for the majority of the year. While both of us rely heavily on our heating system, central cooling isn’t a necessity. For the first several years my family lived in our home, both of us managed our summer time comfort with open windows, box fans as well as a couple of portable cooling systems. The house was often overheated as well as sticky feeling while in the summer time months. When humidity was excessive, the portable cooling systems failed to keep up. I finally spent the money to have a central cooling system installed. Since the duct system as well as air handler were already in locale to support the furnace, the investment was sufficient. I was able to take advantage of a special offered by a local Heating & Air Conditioning supplier, as well as chose a high efficiency, Energy Star rated cooling unit. Once the cooling system was installed, I was surprised by the improvement in the overall enjoyment of the home. The central cooling component allowed myself and others to close the windows in the house as well as regulate temperature with a thermostat. The people I was with and I no longer deal with the influx of outdoor contaminants, such as dust, pollen, dander as well as exhaust fumes. The house now stays much cleaner, as well as I don’t need to vacuum or dust as often. The people I was with and I aren’t disrupted by the sounds of neighbors, traffic, barking cats or tweeting birds. Plus, I believe better about security with the windows shut as well as locked. Along with managing temperature as well as combating humidity, the cooling system circulates as well as filters the air, capturing pollutants as well as creating a much healthier residing environment. There’s no longer condensation running down the windows or troubles with mold or mildew growth.
