It goes without saying that, as humans, we need oxygen simply to stay alive and that we get our oxygen by breathing in the air around us. 100% oxygen is not suitable for prolonged human life and is actually quite dangerous in many other ways. The atmosphere that we inhale is a mix of oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and several other things in small amounts – this provides us with all the oxygen we need to survive; that’s the good news. The bad news is that some of those “other things” in our air are not actually all that good for us – dust particles, germs, pollen, etc. Additionally, since the air surrounds our bodies, we are directly influenced by the temperature and humidity of that air.
For these reasons, we like to condition the Heat and Air in Knoxville, TN. We warm it up in winter and cool it down in summer; we also try to clean and sanitize it; as well as taking out moisture when it is too humid – or adding moisture when the air is too dry for our comfort.
HVAC The Key To Good Air In Knoxville TN
HVAC or heating, ventilating and air conditioning is the term applied to the way in which we manage the air in buildings that we use for our homes, our work and our leisure time pursuits (including going shopping at the mall). We even like to control the heat and air in our automobiles and public transport. We might be making a bad job of climate control for the planet as a whole; but, we are determined to get the temperature and air conditions that we like within our own enclosed environments.
Our climate here in Knoxville is not terribly unpleasant and some places may even envy us; nevertheless, our summer highs are a bit too hot to be working comfortably indoors and the below freezing winter lows make it uncomfortable to be doing anything without wearing a thick overcoat and thermal underwear. We have even hit 102°F and sunk to -20°F in record years. So, some means of conditioning and managing the heat and air in Knoxville, TN is definitely required if we are to live and work normally in our climate.
