Heating and air conditioning work together, usually in the same system to keep a space warmer or cooler than the outside air. All of them depend on a good source of clean outdoor air, whether for heating or for cooling. But depending on the size, shape and use of the space you’re heating or cooling, very often a professional is needed to advise on the technology doing the job.
Heating and air conditioning has gotten much more scientific, efficient and technologically challenging than in the past. Fine tuning, installing and servicing some of today’s equipment simply calls for much more technically sophisticated personnel.
For example, many buildings today are actually bringing too much air from outside into their heating and air conditioning systems. We always calculate heat load as a part of a good heating and air conditioning service. A thorough inspection of the existing heating and air conditioning systems is done with respect to the building and the overall ventilation system – and all air sources.
Making sure that existing heating and air conditioning systems are operating well is one of the chief concerns of your heating and air conditioning service. So a thorough inspection of the facility needs to include all air flow sources including, windows, doors and cracks that will let air in. Remember, older but well maintained heating and air conditioning systems can often perform better than much newer heating and air conditioning units that are badly installed or too big for your home or building.
Although we see it more than we’d like to, reactive maintenance is neither the cheapest nor the most effective way to go. The best heating and air conditioning service is done with foresight and planning.
Heating and Air Conditioning Service
While a major retrofit to your heating and air conditioning systems can seem like the only answer, far more often you’ll see a major retrofit to your door and window seals. Many of these solutions will be affordable too.
Slightly more expensive, but far less common is a duct work issue. Most heating and air conditioning service is retrofitted to work with existing ducts and vents.
In the rare cases where ducts need to be replaced they are sized properly to maximize energy-efficient delivery of heated and cooled air to your home. Too small and they’ll run noisy with the sound of wind or white noise. Too big and the pressure can be too low to keep the system moving. But in most cases, heating and air conditioning systems can be serviced at the intake valve and at a few other key points, so you don’t need to replace all the ducts.
Remember, heating and air conditioning service is advancing with the rest of the world of technology and increased energy efficiency. We’ll be happy to consult with you on your home or business need, no matter how large or small. Call today 646-782-2475.
