Certified Air Conditioning and Heating Contractors in Oklahoma City
A Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system is an integral part of any structure found today. So much so, rarely a home is built without a properly planned and balanced HVAC system. As the name sounds, the system as a whole or as many distinct systems can perform each of these functions. If you are looking to install or replace a HVAC system, it's essential that you have some basic understanding of what they are and what exactly you need for your home. An HVAC system, or Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning system can be one unit serving your household purpose or multiple units serving specific purposes. Typically, a single unit such as a heat pump will meet all your HVAC needs and would work very efficiently. However, depending on the climate you live, a single unit solution would not be the best choice. If you are building a new house, then the builder will know the most appropriate unit(s) for your climate and even will work out the best sizing for your home. Now, if you are in the market to replace a unit, then you may be wondering whether a single unit HVAC solution could be the best. As for heat pumps, the general rule of selection is, is the how low and how long the temperature in your climate drops below zero.
Even if you already have a system which needs replacing, knowing whats out there may influence your decision towards a system that could provide added benefits that may further enhance your living comforts. For example: if you have a natural gas based heating system, you may consider upgrading it to a reverse-cycle heat-pump, which can function in winter and summer, providing heating and cooling from the same unit. Depending on where you live a heat pump can provide higher energy efficiencies and time to time federal and local government provide tax credits and rebates that can reduce the overall cost of the installation
As per heating and ventilating, there are number of ways that can be implemented too. Each of these methods have their own characteristics, however they can be classified based on: 1. The heat conducting medium, 2. The energy type, 3. The heat generating method, 4. Their efficiency. The heat conducting medium, could be either air, water, steam or electricity. The electricity is a fuel as well as can be used for conducting heat. What type of method suited for a particular structure or your home is dependent on the environmental extremes at where you live, availability of a type of energy source, and structural limitation of your house.
In summary, there are multiple options along with their capability and cost factors. Sometimes, the best unit or the most efficient unit may not be cost effective, especially if you have to pull out ductwork, vents etc. to install a new unit. However, in situations it makes absolute sense! Let our HVAC contractors in Oklahoma City, OK help you get started and help you through different choices which is unique to your home.
