Having a great HVAC unit is pointless if the ducting throughout your home is not correctly configured and used. It may seem odd, but if you get the balance of airflow wrong, not only will this lead to putting extra strain on your HVAC unit, but that, in turn, will lead to higher fuel bills and also it will shorten the lifespan of your unit.
So, what do you need to know and understand in order to get your HVAC unit running at optimum performance where ducting is concerned? Here at A&E Air Conditioning and Heating, we’ve got some useful information for you.
Ducting is what allows your HVAC unit to distribute hot or cool air throughout your home. Consequently, the most important thing is to make sure that it is never obstructed internally, through regular cleaning, or externally, by placing any items of furniture, pictures, etc. over any ducts.
The ducting system will also have been created to provide a balanced airflow throughout your home. Start closing off air ducts, and that will throw out that balance, causing the HVAC unit to stop working at it most energy-efficient level, so increasing your fuel bills, as well as adding unnecessary strain on the unit.
Now that may not seem to make a great deal of sense and it is likely you will still be unsure if the ducting in your home is “fit for purpose” and enabling you to heat your home, or cool it, as economically as possible. So how can you ensure everything is as it should be?
