Keeping Your HVAC System Free and Clear

After our heater stopped working altogether last winter, we realized that it might be time to consult with a professional. We called a family friend who is also an HVAC contractor and he came out right away to see what he could do. After taking a look at things, he told us that our vents were almost completely blocked with dust and dirt. He recommended a vent cleaning company to come out and help, and they removed loads of debris the next day with specialized suction tools. After that, our HVAC system ran almost perfectly. This blog is all about the importance of keeping your HVAC system free, clear, and functional.

Types Of Air Conditioning Installation Options

When it comes to air conditioning systems, you have a wide array of options. What will help you make the right choice for your home is the function you want the system to perform, the size of your establishment, and your budget. Here are a few of the top options available.

Central Air Conditioning Systems

Central air conditioning systems are the most ideal for both commercial and residential purposes. This is because they are easy to use and need very little maintenance. However, they might be more expensive than other cooling systems.

Central conditioning systems work in a cycle. The supply ducts collect cooled air from the air conditioner into the house. The air flows through the house and collects the heat from the air inside. It then flows back into the central air conditioner through the return registers. The cycle thus goes on and on continually.

Central air conditioning installation is best done by a professional. Unlike other cooling systems, central air conditioning systems can cool several rooms at the same time. Also, they do not take up space in your home because they are hooked up to the main ventilation system.

Portable Air Conditioners

Portable air conditioners are ideal for small spaces. They are convenient and easy to carry, so you can transport them to the room that you need to cool off. The main disadvantage with portable air conditioners is they come with a tank that collects condensed air that needs to be emptied often. You can choose to do this manually or attach a pipe that drains out.

As an advantage, portable air conditioners consume less energy because you only switch them on when you need them. They may not need professional air conditioning installation. Also, some portable air conditioners double as dehumidifiers, so they are best for hot humid regions. They are also far cheaper than central air conditioners. 

Swamp Coolers

Swamp coolers, otherwise known as evaporative conditioners, work best in dry climates. They come in a variety of sizes to fit different needs. Buying the right size of a portable air conditioner ensures that it works for your space.

A swamp cooler makes use of HVAC technology to copy natural evaporation. It works by taking warm air from the surroundings and running it through the wet evaporative cooler pads in its system. This cools the air. It then releases the cool air into the home through the blower.
