3 HVAC Upgrades You Should Consider for Your Las Vegas Home

May 24, 2020

When it’s time to replace your aging or broken HVAC system, upgrading to a more energy-efficient system is a wise choice. You may also want to consider some new features that will also enhance your comfort. Consider these top three HVAC upgrade options for your Las Vegas home.

Whole-house Humidifier and Dehumidifier

Las Vegas’s intensely hot summers are often described as “like an oven” or “dry heat.” A whole-house dehumidifier increases your comfort during the long summers. With summertime humidity levels less than 20%, you could develop dry, itchy skin or experience static electricity buildup. The extreme dryness can also be damaging to wood furniture, floors and structures. Wintertime humidity levels can exceed 50%, which could encourage biological growth in a moderate environment. During the winter, running a dehumidifier could boost your comfort.

Energy Recovery Ventilator

An energy recovery ventilator improves your home’s indoor air quality. It removes some of the stale, polluted indoor air and replaces it with fresh air from the outdoors. It does this without losing any of the energy used to heat or cool your home. It is more energy-efficient compared to opening your windows for ventilation. The air passes through high-efficiency particulate air filters, which capture dust, pet dander, bacteria and viruses. Energy recovery ventilators deliver optimal results when paired with an upgraded air filtration and purification system.

Zoned Climate Control System

Zoned climate control systems allow you to set different temperatures in each zone. The zones have their own smart or programmable thermostats. This option is available with a ductless air conditioning system or a ductless mini-split system. According to the Department of Energy, these zoned comfort systems lower energy use by 30% and provide more design flexibility when adding onto your home or building a new home in Las Vegas.
