After 30 years in the HVAC business, we have learned how to help customers with any type of home ventilation system. From interactions with our cherished customers over the years, it appears that homeowners know a fair amount about home heating and air conditioning options. It’s great to have in-depth conversations about some of the key features of the homes air control system.
One question we keep getting asked is: what are some of the common types of HVAC systems that could work for me? This post is meant to answer this question for all our inquisitive customers.
Single or Multi-Stage System
Single and multi-stage systems are popular in hot and cold climates alike. The system is designed to operate effectively on the hottest or coldest days of the year, thus guaranteeing warmth or cool air throughout the home.
Single-stage systems are common in older homes and can only operate at only one level of heating or cooling. This can get expensive and be rather loud to live with, which is why the multi-stage system was designed. The multi-stage system operates much like a light dimmer switch in that it has the ability to adapt to the temperature outside.
The single-stage system is certainly less energy efficient than the multi-stage system. It’s a popular choice for homeowners with older property to update their HVAC system to multi-stage.
Another newer option is a zoned system. The home’s furnace or AC unit can be applied only to specific areas of the home that need it most. It is the most effective way to deal with heating and cooling in the home, and most homes built today come with this kind of infrastructure. The zonal system saves energy, cuts back on costs, and is quite functional for homes of all shapes and sizes.
Specific Changes to Heating or Cooling Components
Sometimes a home just needs an update in the heating or cooling department. This is the case for people living in hotter climates that need a fully functional AC unit but do not require a furnace.
