Far too often, we come across clients in Nashville, TN who think they have invested in a high efficiency variable speed HVAC system. We regret informing them that instead, they have a basic, standard efficiency single stage unit. Folks aren't thrilled to hear the news because in their mind, they spent extra on something that was supposed to be more energy efficient.
Why does the mix-up occur?
Much of the confusion has to do with terminology and understand the components of the HVAC system.
Anita moved to Nashville from California in 2018. She was looking to start a new life in a new place. A new job, a new house, and even a new relationship welcomed her to Music City. Anita invested in an up-and-coming neighborhood in Madison and purchased a home that had already gone through interior remodeling. New paint, flooring, windows, and even a remodeled kitchen had been installed before she purchased the home, which gave it definite curb appeal.
The heat is on in Middle Tennessee. We've enjoyed a beautiful spring, but the heat and the humidity are back! When high temperatures mix with high humidity, it feels hotter than it actually is. When indoor humidity levels are high, not only do we feel sticky and uncomfortable, we also increase the risk for mold, mildew, and allergy and asthma triggers.
Is your skin feeling dryer than usual? Notice that you need to water the houseplants more frequently? It’s hard to believe there would ever be a need for humidifying given how wet the summer was, but let’s face it, it’s dry! And as the temperature outside gets colder, it’s going to get even dryer indoors. So, take some precautions in protecting wooden instruments, antique furniture, hardwood floors and your air-ways from drying out and cracking!
