What makes my home comfortable?

The four biggest factors in your home’s comfort are:

  • Temperature
  • Cleanliness/Freshness of air
  • Humidity
  • System Control

Temperature

To most people, temperature is both the beginning and the end of any discussion involving comfort. To Heat NW, simple temperature management is only the beginning. To achieve superior indoor comfort, you’ve got to start with the basics — heating or cooling — as the foundation for your system. We offer four main product families for heating and cooling:

  • Furnaces
  • Boilers
  • Heat Pumps
  • Air Conditioners

Cleanliness/Freshness of Air

Dusty, dirty homes at any temperature can cause feelings of discomfort to many people, especially allergy sufferers.¬† The air in today’s tightly-sealed, well-insulated and energy-efficient homes can become stale as the same indoor air is circulated and re-circulated. The fact is with dust, pollen, pet dander, mold, skin flakes, chemical fumes, cigarette smoke, Radon gas and more, the air inside your home can be even more polluted than the air outside. Heat NW can alleviate these problems and therefore add another level of comfort with the following products:

  • Air Cleaners
  • Ventilators

Humidity

Humidity is a funny thing. In the winter, dry air can cause static electricity, itchy skin, damage to home furnishings and more. Adding humidity is a good thing because it makes the air feel warmer and more comfortable while minimizing damage to furnishings. In the summer, it is preferable to remove humidity so indoor air feels cooler and less sticky. Heat NW ‘s answer? Improved comfort through humidity control with:

  • Humidifiers
  • Thermidistat TM Control
  • ComfortHeat Technology

System Control

Some of the common comfort complaints from homeowners include: inconsistent temperatures from one room to the next, up and down temperature swings, constantly adjusting the thermostat, and more. System controls of varying degrees of sophistication can help with these issues, offering straight temperature control, programmable¬† allowing setting a “comfort schedule” , temperature and humidity control combined, and dividing the home into zones which can be controlled separately. Heat NW provides this kind of control with the following products:

  • Thermostats
  • Thermidistat TM Control
  • Zoning System
