Humidify your air!

By | Home, Humidifier, HVAC

Humidifier Therapy

Humidifier therapy adds moisture to the air which prevents dryness that can cause numerous forms of irritation. Such as dry skin, itchy nose, itchy throat and dry lips. Humidifiers can also ease some symptoms caused by the flu or common cold. For all the benefits humidifiers offer us, overuse has its downfalls as well. Its important to know how to use your humidifier correctly, and Happy Harold’s here to help!

Benefits to Humidifiers

Humidifiers are natural moisturizing ages that help relieve dryness. You have probably used a portable one while sick to help relieve congestion,  an irritated nose, a dry cough or a dry throat. But did you know that a whole home humidifier can help relieve so much more? Such as irritated vocal cords, dry skin, headaches, cracked/dry lips, and even bloody noses! You may think you’re just prone to these irritates, however it could simply mean your home is dryer than it should be.

Drawbacks

Though additional humidity is beneficial to your home and the air inside, too much of a good thing is never a good thing. High humidity levels can worsen respiratory problems and create an uncomfortable level of dampness in the air. Dust mites, mildew, mold and harmful bacteria all thrive in high levels of humidity. HVAC.com recommends maintaining a humidity level of 35-50% to provide maximum comfort while defending yourself against the growth of unwanted bacteria.

Types of Humidifiers:

Impeller Humidifiers send water through a diffuser, the diffuser breaks down the water into small droplets and sends them into the air. This type is relatively cheap, and costs very little to run.

Central Humidifiers are ones that are hardwired into your homes HVAC and your homes plumbing. This means that instead of only targeting one area, it has you covered all over. Most homeowners find this type both cost effective, and efficient.

Ultrasonic Humidifier produce a cooling mist by ultrasonic vibration. The sound vibrations propel moisture into the air. These humidifiers are so effective that they often over humidify the air resulting in dampness or mold.

Evaporative Humidifiers is the most popular type of humidifier. They use a fan and wick filter to operate. When the fan is activated it blows air towards the wick causing water to evaporate and release a mist into the room.

Space Heater Safety | High Performance Heating

By | Heating, Home

Space heaters are a great alternative source of heat people use in their homes, but is everyone using them in the safest manner? With the bitter cold we have been forced to adapt to this winter, people are really experiencing the inefficiencies of their home. Furnaces might be struggling to handle the stress of maintaining a comfortable temperature. Most people don’t take any safety into consideration when using space heaters. As a company with values spread through their customers and community, we want to provide you with proper knowledge in safety, we provide customers with space heaters when waiting for a new furnace to be installed or to get through a night or weekend to keep the final bill down. As of Friday 2/20/15, almost all of Rochester is sold out of electric space heaters. So our highly trained technicians put together a comprehensive safety guide so you can make sure that you and your family are safe, considering almost all of Rochester is using space heaters.

  • When using a space heater, make sure you remember the 3 foot rule. Do not put anything within 3 feet of your space heater, especially anything that can burn easily (clothes, sofas, beds, papers, curtains or other flammable materials).
  • Remember to turn space heaters off when leaving the room or going to bed.
  • Do not place space heaters under desks or other enclosed areas.
  • Keep space heaters away from exit ways, walkways and paths of travel.
  • Ensure that your space heater is on a non-flammable, stable, and level surface- located where it will not be knocked over.
  • Never operate a heater you suspect is damaged. Before use, inspect the heater, cord and plug for damage.
  • To prevent electrical shocks and electrocutions, always keep electric space heaters away from water, and NEVER touch an electric heater if you are wet.
  • It is a good idea when buying a space heater to check the box or with a sales person if the heater is safety-certified. A certified heater will have a safety certification mark.
  • Never run the heaters cord under rugs or carpeting, this can damage the cord causing it and near by objects to burn.

Don’t use portable propane space heaters indoors or in any confined space unless they are specifically designed for indoor use. Even then, make sure they are properly vented. Using gasoline or kerosene space heaters indoors is very dangerous, they emit carbon monoxide which is odorless, tasteless and colorless. You won’t know it’s there until it’s to late and by then the damage can already be done. Take a look at our carbon monoxide guide, knowing the warning signs of carbon monoxide poisoning could potentially save lives.

If you’re tired of the inefficiencies of your heating equipment, which cause you to use space heaters, give High Performance Heating a call, 585-426-3004. Our Highly trained technicians can evaluate your home and heating equipment to determine the best course of action to get your home heated properly and comfortably.

Importance of Heating and Cooling Maintenance

Your home’s heating and cooling systems are a huge investment. If you have ever had to replace a furnace or whole home air conditioning system, you realize just how huge of an investment it is. With the help of High Performance Heating, Cooling, and Hydronics (air conditioning repair Rochester NY) and proper attention to the heating and cooling maintenance of your home’s systems, you can enjoy heating and cooling as it should be enjoyed, and relatively worry free.

All heating and cooling maintenance needs to be performed regularly. Many people incorrectly assume these systems need attention only when they break down. But when they receive repeated checkups, they will likely last longer and help you endure even the toughest winters and stickiest summers. If ignored, however, they will probably fail and create extra expenses.

Regular heating and cooling maintenance checks ensure the system performs well. In order to run smoothly, the system requires cleaning and minor adjusting. When you schedule your furnace or air conditioning system to be inspected on a yearly basis you can potentially save on energy costs.

Before you next hit the switch on your heating and cooling system, make sure you establish a regular maintenance schedule for all the systems in your home by calling the professionals at High Performance Heating, Cooling, and Hydronics (air conditioning repair Rochester NY).
