A Columbus home is more than four walls and a roof—a home is also a system that includes windows, doors, chimneys, attics, and much more. HVAC contractors are trained to view your home as a whole when designing, installing, and even repairing your HVAC system in Columbus, OH. By considering every element in your home and how it impacts indoor temperature, air quality, and comfort, your HVAC contractor can provide more effective service that will help you stay comfortable throughout the year, while also enjoying greater energy savings.
Heat Sinks and Sources
A home is made of many heat sinks and sources, which either add or remove heat from the indoor environment. HVAC efficiency depends on understanding and often minimizing these sinks and sources, which can have a significant impact on indoor temperature and cause strain on either your heating or cooling system, depending on the weather outside and the desired temperature set point. Your HVAC contractor can perform a thorough examination of your home to identify its heat sinks and sources, then make suggestions or take action to reduce or eliminate them to improve the overall efficiency of your HVAC system and the comfort you feel in your home.
The way air moves through your home plays a significant part in both your comfort and the energy efficiency of your heating and cooling systems. Proper airflow allows your HVAC appliances to easily pull in air for conditioning, as well as move that conditioned air through your home so it can reach your living spaces. During a home evaluation, your HVAC contractor will study the way in which air flows through your home, then design or make changes to your HVAC system to promote airflow in more beneficial patterns. Factors such as leaks in your ducts or your home’s exterior, as well as poor insulation or ventilation, can all impact air flow and should be taken into account to maximize your HVAC performance.
Your HVAC system is designed to influence the air inside your home. While HVAC systems are built with stringent safety standards in mind, installation and maintenance of your HVAC system will also influence the system’s safety. HVAC contractors are dedicated to ensuring your home is safe and healthy for your family; regardless of the service you have requested, your contractor will always check the condition and safety of your HVAC appliances, their electrical connections, and any outside vents. These checks will not only protect you from unwanted health hazards, they will also improve HVAC function because small problems will be addressed as soon as they are noticed, before they can have an impact on the way your heater or air conditioner works.
