How HVAC Systems Work
The most basic explanation of how an HVAC system works is that the unit takes in air from outside the building, heats or cools the air, then blows the adjusted air back into the building.
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems also increase the quality of air by removing particles, dust, debris, and pollution from the outside air, and cleaning it.
They cool the building during summer and keep it warm during winter.
HVAC systems are a little more complex than a standard air conditioning unit or heater. They are the most versatile air quality control systems in the market.
They can be fitted out with air purifiers, heat pumps, and all the extra gadgets one might desire for air quality control.
Keep Your HVAC Running At An Optimal Rate
To keep your HVAC unit running at an optimal rate you need to do a few things. Here is a helpful list:
Remember To Clean The Unit

Ensure Your HVAC Unit Well Us Well Ventilated
A good way to prevent particles, debris, and dust from entering your unit is to keep the outside of the unit clean. Remove any leaves branches or dirt build-up away from the unit.
Replace the filters regularly, when the filters block your unit will have to work a lot harder and also consume a lot more energy.
Keep The Air Flow Clean
The airflow from your unit needs to be cleaned at least once a year. Keeping the ducts clean and removing large dust build-ups allows your unit to work more efficiently.
Any kinks or obstructions in the air ducts need to be removed. If you restrict the air vents to control where the majority of the air is directed make sure not to restrict it on all outlets.
Have A Dehumidifier Installed
If your living in an area with high humidity it is a good idea to have a dehumidifier installed. High humidity can also make your HVAC unit work a lot harder than it needs to.
If a dehumidifier is installed before the air intake of the HVAC unit it can seriously help reduce your energy bill and the lifespan of the HVAC unit.
The inner workings of an HVAC unit are highly complex and we do not recommend tinkering with the unit yourself. If your unit is not working properly or at all, give Tbyrds a call today!
