Want to Know More About HVAC Systems?
What are the Elements of a Good HVAC System?
The primary intent of a good heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system is to provide people with a comfortable climate inside their home or business in a safe way. In a traditional HVAC system, it is typically made up of four parts: the furnace, the ventilation ductwork, the air conditioning unit, and the thermostat. The thermostat is the element that helps you control the temperature of your home or business.
When talking with a professional in the HVAC business, you want to hear them using the term Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). Since a poorly installed HVAC system can cause a lot of problems, you want your professional to be concerned about the air quality to ensure the health of you and other occupants of the building. For reference, the American Society of Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning consider a building to be suitable if at least 80% of its occupants don’t experience discomfort.
What are the Major Components of an HVAC System?
It’s also important for you to have a good idea of what the different elements of an HVAC system are, what they do, and where they are located.
A majority of people these days use a central HVAC system that heats and cools and their homes. These central units are often called “split” systems. The reason for this is that the entire unit is not all contained in the home. Some components of the system are located inside, while others are located outside.
Inside, you’ll typically find the furnace and evaporator (usually in the basement, attic, or a closet) portion of the air conditioner. Also, you’ll find the blower indoors as well. Attached to the blower are the ducts that carry your cool or warm air throughout your home.
When you look outside of your home, you’ll find the compressor and condenser for your unit. These are mounted inside of a metal cabinet and feature a large fan.
One of the main alternatives to the split-system is what is called a packaged system. In a packaged system, the components of your HVAC system are not split between indoors and outdoors. Instead, all of the components are packaged together into one unit that is found outside of the home. These units are suitable for people who want to use as much space as possible inside of their home.
Check Out These Super Helpful Tips for Maintaining Your HVAC SYSTEM
Once you’ve settled into your home or office and are satisfied with your HVAC system, there are certain things that you can do to ensure that your system continues to run smoothly.
Some of the best tips that we’ve come up with over the years are as follows:
- In your system, you’ll find what’s called a blower filter. You should keep this filter fresh by changing it twice a year. A good reference is to change once at the beginning of the cooling season and once before the start of the heating season. If you live in an area with a lot of dust or pollution, you should change it even more than this.
- Cleanliness is important. It’s even more important for the outdoor portion of your unit. For any component outdoors, clean away as much dirt and debris as possible, and trim everything around the unit at least two feet back.
- If you want to save energy (and money), choose a programmable thermostat. Anytime you aren’t actively using the HVAC, whether it’s because you’re sleeping or away, you can allow the temperature to rise or fall depending on the season. If you allow to rise (summer) or fall (winter) by ten degrees for eight hours, you can cut energy costs by as much as 5%-15%.
- Although you can handle basic maintenance on your own, you should have your HVAC unit serviced by a licensed professional at least one time per year. They can perform more complex tasks like checking combustion in gas and ensuring there are no leaks in your system.
- If you’re thinking about installing a new HVAC system, ask your HVAC professional to perform Manual J calculations. These calculations ensure that you have the correct system installed in your home or business. If your system it too large or too small, it leads to several complications.
- Always install carbon monoxide detectors to ensure you and your family’s safety.
- If you use electricity to heat and cool your home, consider the geothermal option. While these systems cost a little bit more up front, you save money in the long run. They last longer, run quieter, and use less energy.
