Your HVAC System and You

Anyone who owns a late-model home will have more than a basic heating system. They will, instead, have an advanced Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning system (HVAC). These systems make climate control a breeze when you keep up maintenance and repairs. Let's consider more on the subject below.

Why is it Important to Install an HVAC System?

The chief element of retaining comfort, year-round, involves conditioning the air to the ideal humidity level and temperature. A Central Air-HVAC system allows you to do just that by putting accurate and efficient environmental controls at your fingertips. In fact, you don't even have to adjust newer systems. You can program them or run them remotely to maintain the consistent humidity and temperature levels that you desire.

When you have this kind of control over your environment, you can also get a good night's rest without feeling heat exhaustion and sweating. In addition, your home can be kept so toasty inside that you can comfortably drip-dry after a shower even in the dead of winter. The efficiency of these modern heating and air conditioning ventilation systems is what makes them so attractive to savvy homeowners who are both frugal and eco-conscious. And because there are so many different types, from ductless retrofit styles to zoned systems, that allow you to micromanage the temperatures in each room, you will always have options.

How Does an HVAC System Work in Your Home?

These interior climate control systems are generally made up of the same general parts. A furnace is used in the wintertime to churn out the maximum British Thermal Units (Btu) for every natural gas burned. The furnace heat is transferred with blower fans into ventilation ductwork that pipes it into rooms where it is needed. This same ductwork is used to carry the cold air that is generated by the evaporator coil of the air conditioning unit.

The A/C compressor unit works by circulating a refrigerant gas that liquefies and cools in the condenser coils. The liquid is then sprayed at high pressures into a fine mist that atomizes into a gas within the evaporator. This fine spray creates a cooling effect that you may feel in other aerosol cans when you spray them. The cooling effect helps to refrigerate the evaporator coils. The gas also picks up any heat from the coils and carries it back to the condenser coils where it liquefies and starts the process all over again. The A/C system is a complex heat exchanger system that disperses the heat by using a compressed refrigerant to transfer it into the outside air.
