I just gave birth to my firstborn, my boy, Saul, like three months ago.
- Just like every other new parent, we had tried to get everything ready for him before his arrival.
Since I knew the due date would fall in spring, I had a request that needed to be granted before Saul got here. We discussed with my husband and agreed that we needed to always maintain great indoor air quality for our newborn and us. Breathing fresh air keeps you healthy and reduces any respiratory inflammation. To achieve this, we needed a system that would also cool us down. We previously had a heat pump and wanted to change to a new air condition unit. The point was to have a system that cleans and cools down the air. The cooling specialist recommended the mini split air conditioner. Though pricier than traditional systems, this AC unit is efficient and also conserves energy. Installation was only the first step, to maintain the high quality of air, the cooling expert advised that we keep the HVAC ducts clean. This not only promotes airflow and proper function of the unit but also increases the quality of air. Professionals can clean the vents while executing a quality air conditioner tune-up on the regular. Duct sealing is also a way of maintaining the quality of air. When the ducts are leaking they can release carbon monoxide which is a poisonous gas. Even when installing a zone control system, it is important to also keep checking the thermostats. We managed to have the house ready for saul. We even had a programmable temperature control so we could set our desired temperature. We kept visiting the HVAC business for clarifications, we kept finding a new contractor who was very well informed.
