Air Conditioning and Heating Contractors in San Francisco

Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems are as essential to a today's building as the lighting system. It not only a channel for a comfortable living, but also integral for a healthy lifestyle. Today, at least in the western parts of the world, there is hardly a home built without giving adequate consideration to a HVAC system. When you are considering a new HVAC system or a system for a home you're building, you can also go beyond the norm and decide on a greener solution by considering geothermal heating and cooling. 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.

An air conditioner could come as a single unit such as window air conditioning unit or a split type. A split type air conditioning unit puts the evaporator inside the house, and the condenser is placed outside the house with a fan assembly. The advantage of the split type air conditioning unit is, the ability to place these two units individually at a moderate distance, and this presents more strategies for their installation. An integrated unit however, would restrict your choices for its placement or you will end up carving a large hole on your outside wall to place it. Unless you are considering a window type air conditioner unit for an already designated window location, you choice for an air conditioner unit should lean towards a split type air conditioning unit. For this type of installation, you would require the help of a HVAC contractor. A window air conditioning unit is easy enough to be installed by yourself. However, you have to make sure that the electrical outlet you are plugging in the window air conditioning unit has sufficient amperage as per manufacturers specification. Usually, it is but you never know.

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 can be classified as a energy type and also as a conveying medium. 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 uniqueness of your home.
