The HVAC system is crucial to the air quality and comfort of your home, and employing the help of an HVAC specialist can help make it more energy-efficient. Along with regulating indoor temperatures, the HVAC system plays a critical role in the home’s energy efficiency. This is important, as a malfunctioning system can result in exorbitantly high energy bills.
The Role of the HVAC System
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning is commonly known as HVAC. It refers to the mechanical system that provides thermal comfort and humidity control in indoor spaces. Even though most people refer to it simply as the “AC,” it’s much more than that: it relies on the home’s climate control to maintain an optimum balance between temperature regulation and energy efficiency. This is achieved by managing the indoor environment’s temperature, humidity, cleanliness, and air quality.
There are two main types of HVAC systems: centralized and decentralized. Centralized systems provide heating and cooling from one location, such as a furnace room, mechanical equipment room or an outdoor unit. Conversely, decentralized systems provide heating and cooling from smaller units throughout the house, such as an air handler or heat pump.
Utilizing a centralized HVAC unit, the entirety of the home is heated or cooled simultaneously throughout. This does translate to a higher cost for heating and cooling when compared to a decentralized unit. Whereas, an HVAC decentralized system is more targeted and only heats or cools designated areas. This being a more economical operation in the event you don’t need the whole house heated or cooled consistently. Please note that this is not usually the case for a family home with multiple individuals residing in it; due to the inconsistent temperatures from room to room nor would it be considered ideal for most homes.
Next, we’ll discuss why an HVAC specialist from Frog Air can help make your home more energy-efficient.
HVAC Maintenance is Key to Energy Efficiency
The HVAC system consists of a network of ducts and vents that distribute hot or cold air throughout the home as required. Over time, dirt, dust, smoke, cobwebs, mold, mildew, pollen, germs, and a variety of other contaminants can clog these ducts and vents, slowing down the performance of the unit. There are several ways these particles can build up inside the ductwork. These include:
- Opening and closing doors
- Owning pets
Because of these obstacles, the HVAC unit needs to work harder every time it is turned on. Unfortunately, this inadvertently leads to an increase in energy costs. To remedy this, you’ll need the help of a qualified HVAC specialist. Here are some of the advantages of hiring one:
