IAQ or indoor air quality is relatively one of the hottest topics in the HVAC industry. For the past few decades, outdoor pollution was the focus of the talk in HVACs, and indoor air quality has always been ignored.

According to the U.S. Environment Protection Agency, they have found that the concentrations of indoor pollutants are 100 times higher than those of outdoors. While the American Lung Association stated that 90% of people spend their time indoors, that is why clean indoor air is a must.

The number of pollutants inside can determine the quality of your home’s indoor air. However, it can also be based on the ventilation and humidity levels.

The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio or SEER is a rating system that defines the efficiency of your cooling system. If your unit has a high SEER rating, the operating cost will be lower.

Meanwhile, the Heating Seasonal Performance Factor or HSPF is the system rating for the heat pumps. Like the functions of SEER, the HSPF measures the heating capacity of a heat pump.

Many homeowners try to handle high humidity by lowering the thermostat while their A/C is constantly running. However, this method will only lead to costly utility bills and can cause uncomfortable feelings.

But with whole-house humidifiers, your HVAC system is more capable of eliminating moisture in your indoor space.  Whole-home dehumidifiers are expected to integrate into your cooling system and central heating much faster, leading to a much quieter and not so space-consuming system.  

No, covering your HVAC unit is unnecessary, most importantly, if you have a constantly running heat pump. Covering your unit might lead to moisture buildup.  However, if you worry about the debris or leaves from getting inside your unit, having short covers is a viable option.
