The scorching heat enveloping different parts of the world during summer kill a lot of people. In the US, air conditioning has been a necessity with almost 87% of households using it. But do we really need to merely accept defeat against the costs that climate control gives?
Geothermal heating and airconditioning system that are becoming popular nowadays, is an energy efficient system. This HVAC system cuts household heating and cooling costs by 70%. This is because the system can move as much as three to five times the energy that is being used in the process.
HVAC is a quiet system as compared to the normal ones. The cool coming out of it is more natural and is definitely more comfortable to the skin. HVAC is also environment-friendly because it is not transferring heat and is not creating it as well by burning something. Therefore, it does not emit carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and other greenhouse gases.
Installing HVAC in a home needs time and planning. The following are the steps needed prior to the installation process.
In installing an HVAC system, a geothermal technician needs to assess the current state of the home’s heating and airconditioning system. Questions about the number of rooms that are too hot and too cold, any issues about allergies and excessive dust, and the current energy consumption and bill amount.
A typical HVAC system provider gives a quote depending on the current system’s size. But the best approach to this, that is being practiced by Ground Loop Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. is to use Manual J Load calculation and base the quote on the measurement of each room in the house and other pertinent factors such as insulation levels, window sizes, exterior siding, and other factors affecting the home’s comfort.
It is also a pre-requisite when installing HVAC system to make sure that the existing duct work properly handles the new high-efficiency system. The attic’s insulation level and the existing insulation should suffice in keeping the heat of the summer from leaking into the house.
A thorough assessment of the home’s current heat load and measurement data on the existing heating and cooling system is imperative in calculating the efficiency of the current air conditioning system as compared to the similar houses within one’s area. This helpful information leads to the understanding of how a current system has been performing and how to design a customized HVAC system for specific houses. In the process of understanding all these, people who have seen “comfort issues” with their homes are becoming fully-informed of their best options in meeting both comfort and energy savings.
Installations of HVAC systems vary in length of time. However, the process may take a little longer if upgrades like duct replacement is needed. Once HVAC system has been installed, it would need to undergo series of tests to check the performance of the new heating and cooling system.
