What is Comfort?

There's way more to home comfort than just controlling the temperature of your living space. Throughout the years, we have come to realize that most customers do not fully appreciate how much a lack of humidity subtracts from their perception of comfort in the home. Without a Whole House Humidifier, inadequate humidity levels in the winter actually cause your heating system to work harder than it needs to. This is because air that is too dry does not retain heat as long, and also because humid air actually feels warmer (again, playing an important role in what we perceive as "comfort"). Even worse, if your house utilizes forced air heating, and lacks a whole house humidifier, the heat will feel harsh when it is on, yet as soon as the thermostat reaches it's temperature and the heat shuts off, there will be a chill. Surely this is far less than the kind of comfort you deserve in your own home. Call SUREFIRE Mechanical today to discuss whole house humidifiers. Rest assured, there are Aprilaire humidifiers for every type of application imaginable, so call the whole house humidifier experts at SUREFIRE now!

Aprilaire Dehumidifier image

Of course, the opposite concept is true in the summer as well. Excess humidity can make the house uncomfortable even when your thermostat shows that it's reached your desired temperature. You may perceive this uncomfortable feeling as being hot. Newer, high efficiency air conditioning systems can actually cool off your home so quickly that they do not remove as much humidity as older, inefficient systems which ran longer cycles (as dehumidifiers, by design, are basically slow running air conditioners). The solution is to install a whole house dehumidifier. As with the whole house humidifier, Aprilaire makes dehumidifiers that duct right into your central air conditioning system, in order to serve the whole house. This is the most econimical route to go in the summer time. Call SUREFIRE Mechanical now to find out how affordable Aprilaire humidifiers and dehumidifiers really are!

Electronic Air Cleaners

In addition to whole house humidifiers and dehumidifiers, SUREFIRE also installs Electronic Air Cleaners which, again, can be installed in-line with your central duct system. These electronic air cleaners use robust filter media in conjunction with the electronic ionization of particles in your air, catching fine particulates that your regular filter could never hope to, while also killing germs and microbes!
