How do HVAC systems work?
There are a number of components in your HVAC system that make it possible for it to function.
This is the part of the system you see on the wall inside your house. It is responsible for triggering air circulation to control temperatures. You can manually operate it or set it to automatically keep your home at your ideal temperature when there are spikes or dips.
The furnace is purposeful for heating air when temperatures are low. It is probably the biggest out of all of the components. The heated air is then distributed through air ducts or pipes to different rooms in your house. Depending on the type, furnaces can be powered by solar energy, electric resistance, combustion and heat pumps.
- Evaporator coil
Evaporator coils come into play when the thermostat is programmed to lower temperature. For cooling to take place, warm air inside your house is drawn by a fan through a filter and over the evaporator coil which draws moisture from the warm air. The air is then passed through the refrigerant inside where it is cooled and then circulated back into the house.
- Condensing unit
This unit is filled with refrigerant gas and is found outside your house. It pumps cooled refrigerant into the evaporating coil where it is transformed into a gas when lowering the temperature.
These are normally above the ceiling with downward facing outlets in the rooms. Their purpose is to distribute heated or cooled air in your home.

Expert tips to consider when choosing a furnace
There are a few things to consider when choosing a furnace for your home or business. These are the factors that will ultimately determine what type of furnace will serve you best.
The size of the furnace you need depends on the space you want it to cover. ESCO experts can calculate what size furnace you need to adequately serve you. An undersized furnace will not be able to handle your thermoregulation needs. On the other hand, one that is bigger than required will exceed temperature requirements when regulating thus negating its purpose and also increase your power consumption. The right size will always ensure your comfort whilst saving you on power costs.
There is some heat that can get lost in the vents or chimney while your furnace works to raise the temperature in the house. As such you should consider the efficiency rating of your furnace to ensure that most of the heated air reaches to your house. This will then increase your costs. Efficiency rates range from 60% to 75% for older models and up to 96% for newer versions.
There are several types of furnaces you can acquire. They offer different performance and results. They are :
- Two-stage furnace. As the name suggests, it performs its functions in two temperature scenarios which are mild temperature and when it really gets chilly. It only works for high or low.
- Modulating furnace. It is similar to a two-stage furnace but can vary the amount of heated air depending on temperature. The amount of power needed can also vary depending on use.
- Variable speed. Variable speed is used in reference to the motor. Variable speed furnaces are powered by DC (direct current) voltage motors which are economical.
Places that require constant air circulation can benefit from this feature. Both two-stage furnaces and modulating furnaces have this option.

The burner flame should always be blue. When the flame turns yellow or you notice it flickering, know that something is definitely wrong with your furnace.

This gas is dangerous and may cause headaches, nausea, burning sensations in the eyes or nose, flu-like symptoms and disorientation. Open the windows to let in fresh air when you notice anyone showing those signs. Other ways to spot carbon monoxide leaks are :
- Moisture on windows, walls and other cold surfaces.
- Rust on flue pipes and the visible parts of the vents.
- Little amounts of water leaking from the base of the chimney.
- Presence of soot around the furnace.
- Strange noises coming from the furnace
If your furnace is old, it may start producing some odd sounds. Most of the times those noises are an indication you may need to replace your furnace. You should be wary when you hear squealing, rattling, popping or banging noises. At times it may be your blower turning on and off.
