Improve Airflow With AC Maintenance

AC Maintenance

Reading Time: 2 minutes

For South Florida residents and commercial property owners it is necessary to have a good quality heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system installed. This makes indoor living more functional during the region’s hot and humid summer months. We’ll examine specifically how AC systems function and how to improve airflow in your home or business with comprehensive AC maintenance.

What Is HVAC?

HVAC systems come in two standard types: window units (commonly seen in mixed-use dwellings and apartment buildings) or central HVAC systems. HVAC itself is designed to provide thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality. The design of an HVAC system is based on the principles of thermodynamics and heat transfer.

Your HVAC circulates outdoor hot air into and through indoor space by a cooling process. The cooler air adjusts the internal temperature and reduces humidity of the building, making a space comfortable for living in. Without AC, living in South Florida would be unbearable during the hot and humid summer season.

An important component of an AC system is its cooling load or the British Thermal Unit (BTU) capacity, which is the energy needed to heat one pound of water by 1-degree Fahrenheit. 1 BTU = 1,055 joules (the energy of an electric current converted to heat) or 252 calories (a unit of heat). One watt (the standard unit of power) is equal to approximately 3.412 BTU per hour. For example, a 1,500 square foot home, with good insulation and no air leaks, would require an AC unit with a 542,400 BTU/hour load capacity.

Air Quality And Airflow

Air quality within a home or building can significantly improve with a properly installed AC system and regular maintenance. The airflow can also be improved by mitigating dust and indoor pollutants, and replacing filters regularly on your unit. If you are concerned about airborne allergens, contact an Art Plumbing, AC & Electric home comfort consultant about the most effective filter options available for your home.

Our home comfort consultants specialize in comprehensive air quality and airflow testing within your home or building and can guide you on the ideal filtration for your HVAC system. South Florida residents have several options including the IQAir Whole Home air filtration system, or for those customers concerned about mitigating airborne allergens, they also offer the IQAir HyperHEPA, which has been proven to filter ultrafine particles down to 0.003 microns.

Art Plumbing, AC & Electric can provide a comprehensive AC system check and tune-up for your home or commercial property. Service includes checking coils, refrigerant levels, electric components, filtration, and unit condition. Their professional and certified technicians have the experience and skill to maintain and repair AC issues correctly the first time. Customers also have the peace of mind that their work is guaranteed.

As we approach the cooler months in South Florida, it’s an ideal time to prepare for summer and schedule an HVAC maintenance check. During their visit, have a technician check for any possible air leaks and discuss what energy saving options are available to you. Regular maintenance will extend the life of your HVAC system, save on overall energy costs, and maintain the comfort level of your home or business.
