Home cleaning agents, pets, paints and even new furniture can give out odors or volatile organic compounds. These containments can cause breathing problems with some people. Nutmeg Mechanical Services has measurement devices, which we can place, in the home to measure these pollutants. We can offer many products from the Lennox Ind. Healthy Climate line of products to reduce these pollutants.

Are there any ways I can make my HVAC system more efficient?

  • To make sure your HVAC system is operating at peak efficiency make sure you have a tune up every year and the filters are clean. Make sure the air conditioner has no obstructions around it so it can remove the heat from your home efficiently. You can install programmable thermostats to lower or raise the temperature when you are not home. Make sure you have adequate insulation in your attic, and check your windows and doors for large air leaks. Making sure the heat you put in your house stays in your house is the best way to lower your utility bills.
