Understanding HVAC Systems

Welcome to my blog! My name is Darren. My friends say that I am boring because I love the HVAC system in my home. I am not an HVAC professional, I just love the gentle hum of my air conditioning system as it gently brings the air in my home to the perfect temperature. When I was a kid, my family couldn't afford air conditioning so I spent many summers sweating away and feeling miserable. I vowed to myself then that when I grew up, I would have the best HVAC system money could buy. I hope you find my HVAC blog useful.

Why Paying More for Central AC Is Worth It


If you don't currently have air conditioning in your home, you might be considering central air. While this is one of the most expensive forms of air conditioning, it is also one of the most beneficial. Here are some reasons to consider getting central air, even though it is more expensive to install.

They Are Easy to Operate and Program

Central air conditioners not only pack a lot of power to cool off your home quickly, but they are also very easy to operate. With just a push of a button, you can turn the unit on and off. It is also really easy to program, which means you can set a desired temperature, causing the unit to turn on whenever the indoor temperature reaches that number. This keeps you from constantly having to turn it on and off manually and keeps you from over-using the unit and hiking up those electric bills.

You Get Cool Air in Every Room of Your Home

Perhaps one of the biggest benefits to a central unit is that you can have air throughout your home. Other types of air conditioners, like window or portable units, typically only cool the room they are in. With central air, turning on the unit causes cool air to be distributed evenly throughout every room of your home as long as there is a vent there.

The Air Conditioner Is Quieter

Central units are great for keeping the peace and quiet. If you have ever turned on a big box fan or window air conditioner, you know that it can make quite a bit of noise the entire time it is operating. If you are trying to relax over the weekend and just want to cool off, that noise makes it hard to achieve both. With central air, the unit is so quiet you might not even realize it is on. Plus, if it does make noise, it is usually a good indication you need to call an HVAC technician to inspect it for potential repairs.

You Have Heating and Cooling Combined

Many central units have both cooling and heating, which means you don't need to worry about having two different HVAC systems in your home. This is another great benefit to the higher cost, since you might actually end up saving money with just one unit. You can also program the heater to go on during the colder months so it never gets too cold in your home.
