TIPS - Air Conditioning Encino
How to Choose the Right HVAC Equipment or System for My Needs?
Heating and Air Conditioning Systems are classified as either Central or Local. Local systems are usually wood stoves, space heaters or window air conditioners and used to heat or cool a small space, instead of an entire home or business.
Central HVAC provides heating and cooling from a central location within the home like a furnace. Heating can also be provided from electric heating using a filament that becomes hot when electric current is caused to pass through it. This is usually found in electric baseboard heaters and portable electric heaters.
Choosing and installing an HVAC system can be very complex, so the services of a reliable contractor should be consulted. This should be kept in mind if you are looking for wholesale hvac online or elsewhere. A great deal on a gas furnace must be coupled with high quality hvac installation in order to take full advantage of what the system has to offer.
Change your filters regularly!
This is one of the most simple, yet most often neglected ways of helping to keep your HVAC system in top working condition. A dirty filter will restrict airflow to your system, decrease the quality of the air in your home, and cause your system to be inefficient by allowing the interior of the air handler to become dirty as well. In some cases, major damages to your HVAC system and your home can be caused simply because of a plugged-up filter!
Keep your doors and registers open as much as possible.
A properly installed and balanced air conditioning system is designed to deliver and return hot or cold air evenly to and from all rooms in your home. Closing doors and supply vents, however, can disrupt this balance and cause certain rooms to become hotter or colder than others, resulting not only in discomfort, but also in decreased efficiency. It also causes air pressure to increase in your ductwork, which could potentially cause or magnify air leaks, again decreasing the efficiency.
Doors to unused rooms can be closed as long as there is enough space under the door to allow for air circulation; thick carpet which brushes against the bottom of the door creates a seal of sorts. If you do decide to close off some of your supply registers, never close off vents to more than 10% of your total conditioned space.
