As League City, Texas and its surrounding communities starts to heat up this spring, it gets harder and harder to keep your home comfortable. Instead of sweating it out, try these five add-ons to take your HVAC system to the next level.

Breathe Clean With an Air Purifier

Your HVAC system relies on an air filter to keep its components free from dirt and debris. However, air filters aren’t always designed to remove smaller particles from circulation or provide more advanced filtration technology. If your home’s air supply tends to have higher levels of indoor pollutants like pet dander, tobacco smoke, or even mold and mildew, an air purifier will help your family breathe cleaner.

Maxx AC & Heating offers multiple different air cleaners and purifiers that work with your HVAC system to meet your family’s every air quality need. Opt for the Performance Air Purifier PGAP to capture up to three-quarters of airborne organisms that measure as little as .3 microns in size. For even more power, choose an Infinity Air Purifier GAPA that captures and kills up to 95 percent of pathogens in your home’s air supply.

Moderate Moisture With a Dehumidifier

In Texas, maintaining a comfortable level of humidity can be a constant struggle in spring and summer. If you depend on your air conditioner to manage humidity, your home might never feel cool and comfortable enough, and you might deal with high utility bills as a result.

To get humidity under control, add a whole-home dehumidifier to your existing HVAC system. You can rely on our Carrier Performance dehumidifiers to keep the humidity level in your home within a recommended range. Not only will this help your family feel cooler, but it will also help limit dust mites and mold growth.

Zap Germs With a UV Lamp

Even if you’re meticulous about keeping your home clean, your air conditioner can create an environment that’s conducive to bacteria and other pathogens. The unit’s indoor coil and drain pan tend to attract moisture, and in the right conditions, this can encourage mold and bacteria to proliferate and enter your home’s air supply.

If you suspect that your HVAC system is generating these airborne pathogens, an ultraviolet (UV) lamp offers a quick and effective solution. Our experienced HVAC technicians can position a UV lamp near your system’s indoor coil to kill mold and bacteria before they circulate through your home or cause your HVAC system to operate less efficiently.

Freshen Up With a Ventilator

Many homes in the League City area have relatively tight building envelopes, which means they keep outdoor pollution from entering your home and help your HVAC system run smoothly. A tight building envelope doesn’t seem so great, however, if it means that stale air frequently becomes stuck indoors.

Our ventilators connect to your HVAC system to draw in fresh air while pushing out stale air, continually renewing your home’s air supply. These units capture the energy from the outgoing air and put it to work preconditioning the incoming fresh air. They also help regulate the air in your attic, which helps your home maintain better indoor air quality and a more comfortable temperature overall.

Maximize Your Air Conditioner With a Fan Coil

If your home could use a little extra cooling power, a fan coil offers just the boost you need. This device might be small, but it can add substantial power and functionality to your air conditioner or heat pump.

A fan coil enables your cooling system to operate at variable speeds, which helps manage humidity levels and keeps your home more comfortable. This device also helps to maintain more consistent indoor temperatures without compromising efficiency. In fact, our fan coils can increase your cooling system’s seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) rating by two points. That means you can stay cool all season long while decreasing your energy consumption and lowering your utility bills.

No matter which direction you want to take your home’s HVAC system, Maxx AC & Heating can make it happen. Call Maxx and relax knowing that you’re in good hands: 281-409-3890.
