Many customers find this is a good HVAC add-on because it keeps them from wasting energy on excessive heat or allowing their houses to be cold in the winter.
Remotely controlling with a computer or smartphone ensures that your room remains at a desirable temperature while you are away from the property. In addition, these devices can also follow custom settings for when you are asleep or awake.

A ventilator is an excellent HVAC add-on for people with small children, elderly family members, and pets in their homes because it helps circulate fresh air throughout the house.
5. Air Purifier
An air purifier is be helpful removing unwanted smells, such as smoke and pet odors. A purifier can also remove dust, pollen, mold spores and other pollutants from the air. They work by removing the contaminants out of the air that passes through them. An air purifier can be installed within your HVAC system to purify the air as your heating and cooling systems sends air throughout the ductwork.
The purifier typically removes airborne particles down to 0.1 microns in size. Those particles are small enough to pass through your nose into your lungs, where they cause respiratory problems. A quality air conditioner cleaner can help you breathe better throughout the day and improve your overall health.
6. UV Lamps
Airborne bacteria and viruses are common problems for many people, and UV lamps can help you kill those germs to create a healthier environment. A UV lamp uses ultraviolet light to kill the bacteria and viruses that pass through the air.
Ultraviolet light kills the germs by breaking down their DNA. Bacteria and viruses cannot repair their DNA, so they eventually die without causing sickness or disease. UV lamps can safely function in a commercial or residential area, usually by the indoor coils where condensation occurs, to help keep the air around you free of harmful germs.
