How can home insulation Wellington and ventilation be improved? It is wise to enlist the help of an HVAC contractor to compare your current insulation's resistance to heat with the R-value that is recommended. If your contractor determines that you need more insulation, he or she will help you decide how much to add, and what what type will serve you best. It is also important that you regularly check your attic's vents and clear out any debris that may be clogging them. Perform annual maintenance. A unit that has been inspected and tuned-up functions more efficiently and cleanly. Mold may begin to grow in the drip pan of your air conditioner if drain lines become clogged with algae, and a dirty air filter will be unable to trap airborne particles such as dust and pollen. Change your filter every four to six weeks during peak usage and have drain lines flushed during service. Install UV lights. These lights are installed in your existing HVAC system, and work hard to sterilize bacteria, viruses and other allergens, as well as killing mold. The lights work for you few hours a day, even if your system is off-giving you peace of mind as well as cleaner air. UV lights also help to extend the life of your A/C when installed over the coils. By providing cleaner air, the A/C can work more efficiently, with less wear and tear on parts.
