You may hear the term "HVAC," which is used to describe home heating and cooling systems. The acronym stands for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning–which are the 3 primary functions of a home system. They control air temperature and humidity and maintain the quality of the air in the home.
Heating & Cooling systems are major factors for those looking to purchase homes and are a critical part of living comfortably in a space.
Heating and cooling systems may be classified as central or local. Central heating and cooling is the most standard method, and is defined by a system that produces warm or cool air in one central area and then distributes it throughout the home. There are many types of systems that work as central systems, from traditional split systems to packaged product systems.
Products typically used in central heating and cooling systems include:
- Heat Pumps
- Air Conditioners
- Gas and Oil Furnaces
- Fan Coils
- Evaporator Coils
- Single Packaged Products
- Controls and Thermostats
Dusty, dirty homes at any temperature can mean discomfort. The air in today's tightly-sealed, well-insulated homes can become stale as the same indoor air is circulated and re-circulated. In fact, indoor air quality is among the Environmental Protection Agency's top 3 health concerns. The agency reports that with dust, pollen, pet dander, mold, skin flakes, chemical fumes, cigarette smoke, Radon gas and more, the air inside your home can be 2-5 times dirtier than the air outside.
Although we usually can't see them, air pollutants are all around us, already inside our homes, and waiting to come in from outside. From our yards to our kitchens, dangerous air pollutants threaten our home health and air quality. Plus, each season brings its own dangers, from mold in the fall and winter to pollens and high humidity in the spring and summer.
Indoor Air Quality Solutions
A clean home includes having clean air. Pollen, animal dander, smoke, bacteria and other pollutants naked to the human eye exist in our homes. We have solutions to clean your home air with state of the art air cleaners, purifiers and media filters.
During different seasons and within certain climates, air can become dry and affect the quality of life in your home. If you experience static electricity, dry skin, or respiratory ailments caused by dry air, you may need a humidifier.
In a central HVAC system, air can circulate within a home and become stale over time, potentially increasing the levels of viruses, bacteria, pollen, smoke, and odors. Many times, bringing in fresh air through windows or doors can negatively affecting heating and cooling costs and is not an option. Fortunately, Lavitech can install an energy recovery ventilation system to bring in fresh air while dramatically reducing heating and cooling costs.
Heating and cooling systems provide maximum comfort for home owners by regulating temperature and humidity. Unfortunately, this also can cause a warm, damp climate within your evaporator coil that is ripe for mold growth. We can solve this problem for you by installing UV lamps in the evaporator coil will zap any trace of mold in your HVAC system and leave you with a healthy home.
