4 Tips Before You Have that Mist System Installed

Heat and humidity can make even the simplest task uncomfortable. Good thing there are plenty of ways to combat the sweltering summer heat. One way is to install a mist system. However, aside from lowering temperature levels and reducing the heat and humidity in your outdoor space, misting systems can also help drive insects away. If you want to keep your home mosquito-free, then installing this is a good move. This is especially true if mosquitoes and other insects thrive in your garden or outdoor space.

Planning on getting one? Here are a few tips you should know:

  • Compliance. You’re going to need to look for installers and service technicians to take care of this for you. Make sure you find qualified ones. Don’t forget to ask about their state license, certification and registration requirements to make sure you’re dealing with a legitimate crew.
  • Qualifications. The installer needs to calibrate the system so your garden won’t get more than the maximum daily dose, as specified in manufacturer’s manuals of the pesticides used, the U.S. Environmental Policy Agency says. This way, you won’t have to worry that too much output from the mist system can be detrimental to your garden, your pets and you.
  • Safety. Keep the reservoir as well as the operating system secure. If you have kids or pets on the property, make sure they have no access to any of those areas so as to keep any poisoning incidents from happening.
  • Extras. There are times when you don’t need to use your misting system. By installing rain sensors along with wind and rain sensors, you can cut down on pesticide use or keep the system from applying any pesticides when pets and people are around.

So before you look into having a mist system installed in your home, make sure you read up on these things. Don’t forget to buy one from a credible source to ensure premium system quality.
