What is an HVAC system?

An HVAC unit is any system that delivers heat, ventilation, and air conditioning to your home. It allows homeowners to control the indoor temperature of their space with ease by using a convenient thermostat that not only monitors the current temperature but also turns it on and off automatically, depending on the settings that you have preset. In addition, your HVAC unit is also responsible for circulating air throughout your home. This ultimately ensures that the air you and your family breathe is free of dust, dirt, hair, and other debris that can be harmful to your respiratory system. 

At first glance, your HVAC system’s job is straightforward. However, these systems are highly complex and feature numerous parts that function together throughout your home to ensure you can maintain a comfortable living environment. In addition, there are several types of HVAC systems that can be categorized into being either a split system, ductless system, or hybrid system.

Beyond this, there are also different types of units that act as part of your entire HVAC system, including:

  • Heat pumps: Uses a thermal heat transfer to heat and cool your home throughout the year. 
  • Furnaces: Warms and distributes heated air through your air duct system.  
  • Boilers: Employs different types of energy to transform water into steam. This steam is then pushed through your home’s ductwork to heat it. 
  • Water heaters: Provides hot water to your home through water pipes.
  • Humidifiers: Ensures the air within your home doesn’t get too dry and cause sickness.  
  • UV air purifiers: Removes bacteria, viruses, and other pollutants using a high-powered UV light.
  • Air conditioning: Keeps your family cool by pushing chilled air throughout your home during the summer months.

What should I look for in a HVAC system?

Homeowners may be surprised to know that there are numerous styles, sizes, and brands of HVAC units available for them to choose from. Because of this, it can be challenging to know which unit will work best for your home. As every home is different, it will require a different standard of HVAC unit. Therefore, it can be challenging to determine which HVAC unit is suitable for your home without having a professional technician do an inspection.

With that being said, here are some factors that you can consider that will help you find the perfect HVAC system for your home that will provide optimal comfort and energy savings:

  • The average lifespan of a unit compared to others available. 
  • The kind of maintenance is required for your HVAC system to function optimally. 
  • How much noise the HVAC unit makes as it is turned on. 
  • The type and size of the HVAC unit that is currently installed in your home. 
  • The unit’s Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) will influence how energy efficient your home is. 

Another critical factor that will influence what type of system you need is the HVAC unit’s capacity, which is measured in the British Thermal Units (BTUs). These energy units will ultimately reflect how much energy you will need to use to control the temperature inside your home at any given time of the year. BTUs are calculated based on several factors, including the size of your home, its age, the layout of your floorplan, and the height of your ceilings.

We’ll help you find a unit that works within your budget while ensuring that you experience maximum benefits from your new installation.

How do I know when my HVAC needs maintenance?

All HVAC units require yearly maintenance in order to function optimally throughout the year. Not only does this help improve their lifespan over the years, but it also helps you avoid unexpected, costly repairs and save money on your energy bill. Therefore, proactive maintenance is key to diagnosing problems before they become more damaging. 

With that being said, sometimes identifying that something is wrong with your HVAC can be difficult. This is especially true if you are unaware of the types of signs that could indicate there is a problem, to begin with.

Therefore, to ensure homeowners are able to identify issues early on with their HVAC units:

  • Having trouble turning your HVAC system on at all.
  • You have noticed significant increases in your monthly energy bill.
  • There is low air pressure coming from your vents which makes it difficult for heated and cooled air to distribute throughout each room of your home, leading to patches of heated and cooled air that are not even. 
  • You are having difficulty regulating a constant, comfortable temperature in your home regardless of what time of year it is. 
  • Your thermostat is inaccurate compared to the temperature that is actually in your home. 
  • There is an odd smell coming from your HVAC system as it functions, such as a burning smell of mold and mildew. 
  • You hear strange noises, including rattling, hissing, and clicking coming from your HVAC system or throughout your ductwork.
  • There is water leaking and pooling out of your HVAC system when it is turned on. 
  • You and your family members are experiencing unexplained allergies and cold-like systems that can make living in your home uncomfortable. 
  • Your home is exceptionally dusty regardless of how often you clean it. 

Keep an eye out for these around your home. If you do end up witnessing any of the above-noted signs, then we suggest calling Boonstra Heating and Air Conditioning as soon as possible. We’ll have a licensed and certified technician come to inspect your HVAC unit promptly so you can get back to enjoying your home in no time.
