HVAC Amidst COVID-19

As an essential business, Komfort Heating will be maintaining our service and replacement programs during the Corona Virus outbreak. Your health and safety, as well as that of our service techs is our top concern. We are following all official protocol, and maintaining industry best practices. We are practicing social distancing at the office, and no techs with signs or symptoms of illness are coming into the office. Our service team is equipped with nitrile gloves and bleach spray in each van. We ask that if you are experiencing signs and symptoms of illness yourself, you make the dispatcher aware so we can be intentional in which tech we send to your home, as well as allowing them to make informed decisions regarding their own health practices.

We do offer UV Lights, which can be installed directly into your ductwork and do effectively disintegrate/kill viruses, along with other bacteria and organic compounds polluting your indoor air. If you are interested in learning more about the air in your home so that you can keep yourself and your family safe, please call our office to schedule a free indoor air quality analysis. This will take approximately 30 minutes of your time, and will generate a report, sent directly to email, detailing all the pollutants, allergens, germs, and viruses living with you in the home.

We have also begun an air filter delivery service, as well as curbside pickup for filters. We encourage you to check the filter in your equipment, and replace it to maintain superior air quality in your home while you increase the amount of time spent indoors through the coming weeks. Call our office for more details on this option at (262) 723-2662.

Stay safe, and we are honored to be in a position of service to the community at this time.

Virus Concerns?

With so much conversation around viral disease, and options for prevention, Komfort Heating wanted to take a moment to connect with the power of air purification systems. With UV-C far reaching technology, air cleaners are now able to effectively eliminate viruses. While you can’t carry one of these around in your pocket and shine it on every person who crosses your path, installation of the equipment into your home can increase health. Maintaining a clean and disease free space is important year round, but particularly as concerns like Coronavirus surface, this added peace of mind is invaluable. The Lennox pure-air is a no-fuss option to add into your homes HVAC system. With a quick and easy installation, the light will kill 90% of all cold and flu viruses in the air, 99% of mold spores, pollen, dust and pet dander.

UV Lights to Alleviate Allergies

Spring and Summer bring in warm air and lots of allergens with it. While difficult to adjust outdoor air quality, the amount of allergens in your home can be controlled. Allergic triggers like mold, mildew, fungi, pet dander, and pollen can all be eradicated through UV Light treatment. A quick and easy installation process, UV lights simply sit in your furnace and as the air circulates past, they kill off the organisms floating in the air. If you’re looking for an entire home solution to allergy problems Komfort Heating and Cooling can schedule you for a free consultation to explore all the options we have available. Call today!

Why Do Homes Need ERV’s & HRV’s?

Insulation standards and our ability to create airtight homes have increased greatly over the past 20 years. These changes have enabled us to create homes which are significantly more energy efficient than the homes of the past. Previously, excess moisture and fresh air could leave or enter the home thorough cracks or spaces where the insulation was lacking. Now that insulation techniques and standards have grown, the problem has shifted from energy loss, into an inability for the home to breathe. This can cause a feeling of stuffiness, too much moisture in the home, and increased allergens. An ERV or HRV exchanges old, stale air in the home out for fresh air. While slightly varied in what each type offers,  either system is designed to elevate your comfort and alleviate air flow issues in the home.

Heat Recovery Ventilators

Most simply put, an HRV removes stuffy air from your home, and replaces it with fresh outdoor air. The system has two ducts- one to carry in the fresh air, and one to remove the stale. Each side of the ducting passes through a heat exchanger-which allows heat to transfer from one airstream to the other, both bringing in fresh air, as well as reducing heat costs. This will help your home maintain ideal humidity levels indoors, as well as reduce allergens in the home. An HRV is an ideal HVAC addition to any home that just isnt generating the fresh air you need!
