Is your HVAC system costing you too much money or not doing its job? If so, it might be time to upgrade the system in your Fernandina Beach, Florida, home. One recent innovation in the rapidly changing HVAC field is the variable-speed motor. Let’s take a look at the advantages offered by a variable-speed HVAC system.
How Variable-Speed HVAC Systems Work
Variable-speed units adjust their output according to the temperature in your house, working harder when the temperature demand is high and slowing down when the demand is low. They can run at a wide range of speeds to precisely match your home’s heating and cooling requirements.
Extreme Energy Savings
If the cost of heating and cooling is getting you down, you’re not alone. The price of electricity has been increasing for years. Fortunately, HVAC technology keeps advancing. One of the newer developments is the variable-speed compressor.
Instead of repeatedly turning on and off like a conventional unit, a variable-speed system works at a low speed most of the time. As a result, it endures less wear and tear, enjoys a longer lifespan and lowers utility bills. Variable-speed models are often more expensive than standard models. But you’ll eventually get your investment back through the increased energy efficiency that they offer.
Since the indoor air handler of a variable-speed system often stays running, it lets you avoid temperature fluctuations caused when other heaters or air conditioners turn on and off. It also prevents distracting noises caused by units that run at higher speeds.
Healthy Air Quality
Since air flows through the filter in a variable-speed HVAC system almost constantly, the filter can remove more contaminants to improve your indoor air quality. Catching more of them can prevent asthma and allergy symptoms, sore throats, eye irritation, rashes and unpleasant odors. A system that stays running can also control the humidity in your home better than a conventional unit. As a result, you’ll prevent microbial growth.
