HVAC Tips for When You’re Expecting

First of all, congratulations! This is likely one of the most stressful and exciting times of your life, and we’d just like to help in any way we can. When new parents start making changes to their lives and family planning, there can be some unexpected concerns that pop up.

For instance, you might not have cared much about the air quality of your home before you became pregnant, but now that might be on the forefront of your mind. How safe is my breathable air? Is it stuffy? What can I do to fix this?

On the other hand, hot and cold spots can be devastating to your home comfort if you’ve got an old and outdated HVAC system. Pregnancy makes people more aware of how comfortable (or uncomfortable) they might be, and we’re here to help you problem-solve. For your HVAC or indoor air quality in Waterloo, IA, just give us a call.

Airborne Contaminants

Safety always comes first. If you’re constantly getting sick or feeling uncomfortable due to your home’s air, then it might be time to invest in a powerful air quality device. These units can be anything from a UV air purifier which eliminates biological contaminants such as mold spores and viruses, to an air filter that stops dust in its tracks.

Unfortunately, without some serious testing (which we can do) it can be hard to pinpoint what exactly is causing you the most trouble in your home. But we urge anyone, pregnant or not, to do a walkthrough of their house and tell us about their experience with the breathable air. If it feels stuffy, unsafe, uncomfortable, or has a foul odor, we might be able to do something about it.

Stay Put with a Wi-Fi Thermostat

The later stages of pregnancy can be difficult to manage, especially if you have a lot of chores and things to do around the house. Rest is one of the most important things required during this trying time, and we’d argue that a Wi-Fi thermostat could help you maximize your relaxation time.

These thermostats are simply more powerful and efficient than old digital ones–with one amazing boon. They can be operated via your smartphone from bed, the bath, or even another floor in your home. No more constantly getting up to change the temperature a few degrees. That can all be done wherever you are.

Invest in Efficient and Powerful HVAC Technology

Family planning is all about starting a new life together as a family, and what better way to do that properly than with a new HVAC system? Purchasing a heat pump could mean yearly savings due to their amazing power and efficiency, and it’ll likely last until your kid’s 15th birthday.

If you’re looking for other comfort options, give our team a call to see more.

Don’t Forget Maintenance!

One important thing to remember if you’re nervous about the safety or comfort of your home while pregnant is maintenance. Maintenance is an appointment that can be scheduled at your convenience, where a professional inspects, maintains, adjusts, and even repairs your system so it’s in the best shape it can possibly be. If you’re looking at a stressful next nine months, this service could be perfect for you.

At Dalton Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, Electric and Fireplaces, Inc., your comfort is our promise! To set up an appointment in the Cedar Falls area, give us a call at the number above, email or schedule an appointment online.
