HVAC Basics: What Do You Need to Know?

hvac system basicsHas your air conditioner ever broken in the middle of a heatwave? Has your heater stopped working during a snowstorm? HVAC disasters can hit at the most inconvenient times – not like there is ever a great time for one of these crises to strike.

While you cannot prevent these malfunctions, you can be aware of the basics of HVAC systems, including their sizing, installation, and maintenance to ensure a lower likelihood of needing costly repairs or replacements.

HVAC System Sizing

Bigger is not always better when it comes to your HVAC system. Before installing your HVAC units, calculate your heating and cooling system needs. Every single home is different and needs its own calculations.  If the systems are not sized correctly, problems may occur and your home’s heating and cooling system will not be firing on all cylinders. 

To begin, bigger is not always better.  Larger systems are more expensive, while smaller systems are more cost-effective and can work just as, if not more efficiently. Additionally, systems that are too large will cause wear and tear, resulting in costly repairs, premature failure, and a shorter life for your system as well as unnecessarily higher monthly utility bills. 

Properly sized systems enhance comfort in your home. For example, when your HVAC system is the correct size, the system will run in longer, smoother periods, creating more efficient temperature control throughout your home. Not only will this increase comfort, but it will also help lower energy bills as it avoids over-conditioning specific rooms. 

HVAC System Installation 

When the day for your HVAC system installation arrives, be sure to note if the system is not installed properly it will never work properly. There are four critical areas you need to be mindful of including proper charge adjustment, proper airflow, badly sealed return, and poorly closed supply.
