If you’re like most Canadians, you complain that it’s too cold in winter and too hot in summer. All you really want is to feel comfortable all year ‘round. “Everyone should feel comfortable in their own home, regardless of the weather outside,” says Don Matheson, owner of the Home Town Sears store in Keswick. “Today there are a lot of options from air conditioners to humidifiers and dehumidifiers to make your home as pleasant as possible.”
Controlling the climate of your home comes down to temperature and humidity. Stores, like Sears, offer several options to help you create a comfortable indoor environment.
Humidifiers add moisture to the air in your home. Humidity, in the right proportion, can make your home more comfortable and help eliminate problems like static and dry skin and hair. There are four basic types of humidifiers: evaporative, cool mist, warm mist and vaporous and you can choose from console or portable versions of each depending on the size of the area you want to affect.
Dehumidifiers improve indoor air quality by removing excess moisture in the air. Excess moisture can cause a feeling of dampness and can affect those with mould-induced allergies. An experienced professional at a reputable store, like Sears Home Town Stores, can help ensure the model you choose is big enough to get the job done in your home.
The best way to cool down your home in the summer is with an air conditioner unit. This can be a floor or window unit depending on the area you wish to cool. There are many different features and a knowledgeable salesperson can help you find the right unit for you.
Can’t decide? “Some people prefer the convenience of a three in one unit,” according to Don Matheson. “These units offer an air conditioner and dehumidifier with fan and heater to ensure your comfort all year round.”
