Your home’s decor is very important to you. That designer furniture is top of the line. That Persian area rug can last you for generations. But only if it’s properly cared for. All of these high end pieces must be well maintained in order to last. And your HVAC system is integral to that purpose. Here’s how to use your HVAC for luxury living.
One of the greatest enemies of home decor is humidity. The moisture in the air causes wood to warp and paint to peel. It leads to mold and mildew growth, as well, which damages everything from your rugs and upholstery to paintings and family photographs.
Fortunately, your HVAC system dehumidifies your home and keeps moisture out of the air. What happens if it’s not working properly, though? Or what if it breaks down while you’re on vacation? In both cases, the damage builds up slowly, and by the time you notice it, fixing the problem will cost a fortune.
This is why it’s so essential to keep your HVAC system properly maintained. Be sure to get your two annual HVAC maintenance visits: one in the spring, for your A/C, and one in the fall, for your furnace. Your HVAC technician can discover issues before they become problems. They’ll fix or replace any components that are about to fail, clean the condenser, check for leaks, and generally ensure that your system is working properly, so it can keep your decor in top condition.
There is one issue with HVAC for luxury living, and that’s that the systems themselves don’t look particularly attractive. It’s hard to make your A/C blend in with your home decor. Fortunately, there are some solutions.
Get a system that can be easily hidden. A unit with a small air handler that doesn’t take up much space can go somewhere inconspicuous. You can also opt for a ductless system, to avoid the need unsightly ductwork that intrudes on your general aesthetic.
