Gaining extra knowledge about your heating and cooling system will help you regularly check that the system is working efficiently and will help you discover difficulties in between your regular service and maintenance visits. Your air conditioning and heating system is a complicated mixture of electrical systems, plumbing and refrigeration. You do not need to become an expert in each of these to understand how your system works, but a little education goes a long way.
How Does Your HVAC System Work?
Most individuals understand how the remote control works and when it doesn’t, they know who to contact to reset your air conditioning and heating system.
The thermostat is the main control for the comfort of your home. You can set the temperature range to suit your family’s requirements. With changes in the climate, you can cool your property when it is hot outdoors and heat it up when it is cold outside.
The remote control and the thermostat are programmable which means that you can change your cooling and heating decisions based upon how you use your home and your family’s differing schedules and the behaviors of how they intend to use your air conditioning and heating.
The air cleaner is used to filter pollutants and dust before the air reaches you. This also helps keep dust and other small pollutants away from your furniture and any floorcoverings. You can choose the type of air cleaner that is used in your property. This becomes a more important choice when you have people that suffer from allergies or asthma, because you can choose the level of filtration that you require.
The air conditioner is usually part of a system that removes moisture and heat from inside your property and transfers it outside. Air is cooled and dispersed around your home. The air handler is the unit inside your property, that when coupled to a blower, moves the cold or warm air around the rooms of your choice.
Where you have a ducting system, the hot or call air is transferred from one central location to every room in your property.
