Balancing My HVAC System

A few months ago, I realized that something was wrong with my HVAC system. It seemed like no matter what I did, some rooms were hot and some rooms were simply getting too much cooled air. Instead of trying to troubleshoot my air conditioner on my own, I called out a professional HVAC repairman for help. They went through each room of my house when the system was running to measure the outgoing airflow and to check for issues. They discovered some serious balance problems, which they resolved after running a few extra lines. Check out this blog to learn more about HVAC in general.

Can'T Decide If You Want An HVAC System? 3 Reasons Why You Should

If you currently use window mounted air conditioners in your home, as well as heaters to stay warm in the winter, you may be considering installing an HVAC unit. There are many reasons why an HVAC unit is much better than window mounted air conditioners. Three of these reasons are listed below. Learning this information should help you make the choice of which one is better for you and your family.

Window Mounted Air Conditioners Are Bad for Your Health

Window mounted air conditioners not only make windows unusable for you, but they are also bad for your health. For example, window mounted air conditioners are moist inside so it is easy for mold and fungus to grow inside of them, such as on the fan blades and the coils. This mold blows into your air whenever the air conditioners are running. This can cause respiratory problems, such as runny noses, watery eyes, and a cough.

If you do not clean your window mounted air conditioners regularly, mold and fungus will accumulate. If you do not know how to clean them, refer to the user's manual or the manufacturers website.

Requires One Unit

You likely have window mounted air conditioners in several rooms in your home in order to keep everything cool. This is especially true if you have a large home, such as two stories. With an HVAC system, you will only have one unit that is located outside.  They are not very large so they do not even take up a lot of room outside. It also takes a lot of energy to run all of those window mounted air conditioners, and an HVAC unit is energy efficient. This means you will see a lower energy bill each month.

HVAC is Quieter

Running window mounted air conditioners is very noisy, especially if you have more than one running at the same time. Things become even louder because you will have to turn up the volume on your TVs and other devices in order to hear them clearly.  Because the HVAC unit is outside your home, you will not hear it when it is running. This allows you to sit in peace and quiet no matter what room you are in.
