Safer At Home-An HVAC Specialty

Long before Governor Evers issued this weeks new mandate, Komfort Heating was making the safety found within your home a priority. Home health is our expertise, we have been in practice for 44 years, and are doubling down on this commitment to our community.

Komfort Heating is not just a business, but a family of technicians. We care for each other and our community with a genuine concern for our impact on all those with whom we interact on a daily basis. The techs we are sending out to homes are all washing their hands regularly, are utilizing appropriate protective wear, and have not been out of the country or to homes where individuals are experiencing symptoms. With all this mind mind, we want to emphasize the safety in having Komfort technicians in your home. The CDC has stressed the importants of 6 ft social distancing, however they have also made clear that with social distancing in place, we do not need to feel fearful of interacting in small numbers at this time.

With that all being said, keeping the air in your home clean and filtered becomes increasingly important as the time spent in those spaces grows. Furnace filters remove dust, allergens, particles, and pollutants from the air so that it does not continually recirculate into your space. There are varying sizes of filters, with correlating abilites to remove more or less of the organic matter from your air, based off of their individual MERV rating. Looking for something to feel empowered and in control of your personal safety? Go to your furnace now and check that filter- Is is dirty? Replace it! Call Komfort and take advantage of our home delivery service or curbside pick up options.

There is a large variety of indoor air quality products available to the market currently, all of which assist in keeping your home safe and clean. UV Lights kill viruses and germs, Air Purifiers filter out allergens and pollen, Humidifiers prevent asthma, and De-Humidifiers reduce mold. No matter what concerns you have, there are simple and approachable solutions we can offer. Our technicians are trained to expertly analyze the needs which are not being met by your current system and offer affordable and trustworthy answers.

Komfort wants to keep your home safe and clean, and we are perfectly equipped with the skills, knowledge, and hardware to do exactly that.

HVAC Amidst COVID-19

As an essential business, Komfort Heating will be maintaining our service and replacement programs during the Corona Virus outbreak.

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 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.

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.
