How Efficient is Your HVAC System?
Just because your heating and cooling system is functioning doesn’t mean it’s working at peak efficiency. Typical installed equipment only operates at 55% to 70% of its manufacturer rated capacity and efficiency because of improper installations. Like your body, your home heating and cooling equipment relies on many things to work together efficiently so you get maximum comfort with a minimum energy cost. Think of the airflow through your house like blood through your veins. Proper blood flow (air travel) will cause optimal environments. Most contractors don’t even know how to diagnose all the parts of your HVAC system, let alone measure and show you actual numbers representing the blood pressure of your HVAC system.
We are NCI trained heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals experienced to test systems just like yours to determine existing efficiency and then optimize your home for comfortable air in every season. Our professionals can also pinpoint troubles in your HVAC system and fix them.
What is Air Balancing?
In its simplest form, air balancing is the process of testing and adjusting your air conditioning system to deliver the right amount of air to each room in your home. The actual air balancing process includes a number of related tests that determine the performance of your air conditioning and heating system. It’s not uncommon to find a system 30% to 50% low on airflow. Air passes through the equipment and carries the heating or cooling inside. The effectiveness of the equipment is entirely dependent on the amount of airflow. When your COMFORT SOLUTIONS technician measures the airflow, he or she can “see” system performance. With this information he or she can diagnose, repair, and balance the duct system for maximum performance. The end result is having rooms that are the same temperature, have cleaner air, better humidity control, and real energy savings.
Why is My Duct System So Important?
The duct system is a series of conduits that carry the warm and cool air from your air conditioning and heating equipment into your home and then take it back to the equipment. The ducts also control how much air is delivered to each room. The right amount of air will keep the room temperatures where they need to be. If ducts are damaged, improperly installed, or the wrong size, they can cut your system’s ability to heat or cool by more than half on hot or cold days, — when you need it the most.
Do I Know How Well My System Is Working?
Ducts move air, and air is invisible. So to determine if your ducts work or not, air properties must be measured. An NCI-Certified Professional can measure how much air goes to each room and compare it to how much is needed. He or she will also take other measurements — including temperatures and pressures — to determine how well your ducts work. Then your COMFORT SOLUTIONS Professional will review the results of the test with you.
Unfortunately few have the knowledge or own the tools and instruments necessary to measure the performance of your duct system. If they can’t measure it, they have no idea how to fix it, or even where to begin. Most just assume the ducts are working fine. That is how COMFORT SOLUTIONS is a different kind of heating and cooling company.
What Is A Heat Pump?
A heat pump is an all-in-one heating and air conditioning system that works year-round to keep you comfortable. During warmer months, a heat pump works as a normal air conditioner. It extracts heat from inside the home and transfers it to the outdoor air. In colder weather, however, the process reverses—the unit collects heat from the outdoor air and transferring it inside your home.
Even when the air outside feels extremely cold, the air still contains some heat. The heat pump pulls the heat from this cold outdoor air and sends it inside to warm your home. When there’s not enough heat in the outside air to meet the demand of the thermostat setting, an electric heater supplements the outdoor air to warm the home. Extremely efficient, this process produces two to three times more heat than the energy it uses.
What Is Two-Stage Heating?
Two-stage heating means the furnace has two levels of heat output: high for cold winter days and low for milder days. Since the low setting is adequate to meet household heating demands 80% of the time, a two-stage unit runs for longer periods and provides more even heat distribution.
Longer, low-capacity operation has many advantages:
Two-stage heating eliminates the temperature swings associated with standard furnaces, regulating temperature to within as little as one degree of the thermostat setting.
Two-stage furnaces start in the first stage, when the amount of heat required is lower, instead of reaching full capacity all at once. That means there’s no sudden “kick” or blast of air.
Improved air filtration
Low-speed operation allows your filters to capture more contaminants (because air is constantly passing through them), so you can breathe easier.
Because the furnace operates mostly in its lower-capacity first stage, it burns less fuel than a standard furnace that always runs at full capacity and shuts off when the heating demand has been met.
