HVAC is short for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. We often use this abbreviation to refer to your whole heating and cooling system, which includes:
- Comfort units, such as a furnace, heat pump, air conditioner or mini-split system
- Indoor air quality solutions, like air filters, air filtration systems, germicidal UV lights, whole-house humidifiers and dehumidifiers, and ventilation
- Comfort controls, such as thermostats systems
While there are differing types of HVAC units, they all operate identically by:
- Relying on a fresh air source outside or inside your home or business.
- Running air through a filter to trap particles and allergens.
- Heating or cooling air.
- Sending air through a ducted system or immediately into a room, depending on the type of system you use.
You’ll want to find a production date. This is usually situated on a label on the exterior of your system.
If your unit is under five years old, it might still be warrantied. However, warranty terms and conditions vary by manufacturer and installing company.
It’s common for your heating and cooling equipment to make a little noise as it works. There are a couple of considerations that impact its sound level, like age and insulation.
However, hearing odd or loud noises might mean a potential problem with your system. If you don’t fix it, there can be serious (and expensive) consequences later on.
If you’re experiencing any sounds, get in touch with a professional as soon as possible. Temperature Solutions will find out what’s occurring with your equipment and what needs to be done to repair it.
Units that make too much racket furthers sound pollution. While noise might not necessarily impact energy efficiency, it can impact comfort in your house.
Comfort equipment created now are quieter than previous years. However, it’s good to look at sound rankings for your new air conditioner, particularly if it’s installed near your bedroom or living room.
A popping disturbance is a common sign of an insufficient duct design. This occurs when there’s more airflow than your ductwork can manage.
Troubles with your ductwork can lead to other ventilation and air quality troubles, such as:
- Significant noise
- Greater energy needs
- Early system malfunction
- Irregular heating and cooling
- Broken AC compressor in the summer
- Too hot furnace or heat pump in the winter
- Mold growth inside ducts
