How Humid Should My Home Be?

Monday, January 16th, 2023

Have you ever heard the expression “every home is different?” It’s true, every single home is going to be designed and put together differently depending on the people who live in it. Your cousin’s home probably looks at least a little different from your best friend’s home, and that’s one of the fun parts about being a homeowner. Your home gets to be the way you want it, and nobody can tell you otherwise.

When it comes to comfort, this is going to remain true. Every home is going to have its own comfort preferences. Homeowners throughout Mount Holly, Lumberton, and Evesham are going to live differently and with different comfort preferences. But what if we told you that there is such a thing as having extreme comfort preferences that could damage your home, your health, and your energy efficiency? We’d argue that humidity levels need to be normalized when it comes to indoor air quality in Burlington County. And here’s why.

Common IAQ Pollutants and Causes

Indoor air quality is a serious concern for homeowners these days.

5 Spring Cleaning Tips to Improve Indoor Air Quality

Monday, April 25th, 2022

Springtime is a time when we start to think deeply about our indoor air quality. The level of contaminants in your home is going to directly impact how comfortable you are, and while temperatures are warming up, we have an opportunity to open the windows and vent things out a little bit. However, just opening a window isn’t really going to cut it this year.

Homes are built to be astoundingly airtight, which means that just opening one or a few of the windows in your home isn’t going to do a very good job of freshening the air. Homeowners in Stone Harbor, Avalon, and Ocean City understand this very well. You might need the help of an air purifier in Cape May County so that you can eliminate odors, and harmful contaminants, and keep your home clean.

Combine your air purifier with these few tips and your home will become a sanctuary!

Ambient Comfort’s Guide to Combatting Allergy Season

Monday, March 28th, 2022

Allergies are a tough concept to cover. People who suffer from allergies can feel marginalized since there are many people who don’t feel the effects of pollen and allergens in the air. And, to make things even harder for people who deal with allergies in the spring, it’s an unavoidable part of the year that you can’t really get around. Every spring, the snow melts, and the plants release their pollen to reproduce. This is just the way things go.

However, while you can’t stop allergy season outdoors, you can absolutely stop it inside. For everyone suffering this spring, we get it. This blog post is dedicated to homeowners in Northfield, Folsom, Hammonton, and anyone in Atlantic County who wants to get a head start on combatting allergies this spring.

Naturally, we think it’s the perfect time to discuss the installation of an air purifier in Atlantic County. This system can and will help you fight allergies this season.

5 Benefits From a Home Humidifier

Monday, January 17th, 2022

Humidifiers are amazing systems. When we started to realize that dry air was becoming a problem in our homes, boiling a pot of water or purchasing a small, portable humidifier just wasn’t enough. Manufacturers started creating groundbreaking systems known as whole-home humidifiers that could actually add humidity to the entire space of a home. This made the process more effective and these systems were also more energy-efficient since they could distribute humidity better and utilized a home’s HVAC system.

However, we’re not in the business of convincing homeowners in Wenonah, Glassboro, or Swedesboro about purchasing humidifiers. Your home is your home, and we believe everyone should choose how they treat the air in their homes. Instead, we’d like to talk about how you might benefit from a home humidifier in Gloucester County, and why humidification technology could be a huge boon for your house.

5 Benefits of a Complete Home Comfort System

Monday, December 6th, 2021

Ambient Comfort’s Guide to HRV/ERV in New Jersey

Monday, September 27th, 2021

HRV and ERV systems are quite interesting topics of conversation. When we mention their names, homeowners rarely know what they are or how they work. But when we talk about what they do, all of a sudden everyone wants an ERV or HRV machine. They provide a valuable service in your home that can’t be done by any other system.

HRV and ERV stand for heat recovery ventilator and energy recovery ventilator respectively. Heat recovery ventilators in Atlantic County are designed specifically to bring in fresh air as if you were opening a window in your home, except they heat the fresh air in a unique process known as counter-flow heat exchange which is energy efficient.
