Heating and Air

In many instances heating and air conditioning failure in the area is the cause of not having a Berkeley heating and air conditioning specialist come out to your home and inspect and perform preventive maintenance on your heating and air conditioning unit itself. These types of situations can be greatly reduced by having this preventive maintenance scheduled to come at regular intervals throughout the year to ensure that everything is working properly.

The term HVAC is something that every homeowner should know the meaning of. It stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. There are three main purposes of your furnace and air conditioner in your home. These systems control humidity, control air temperature, and control the air quality of the air. These three aspects of HVAC will keep the climate of your home at the level that you request. There are different types of Berkeley heating and cooling systems that can be used in a home setting that will be as efficient as possible along with being economical.

All of these operations happen from two different units that have to be installed in your home for both of them to work, if we are talking about a central unit. The warm air that is created will be from the air handler or furnace. This ignites a flame inside the unit and heats up the heat exchanger. From that point the fan turns on and takes the hot air that is emitting from the heat exchanger, takes it throughout the home through ductwork to warm the home. With cooling you have a condensing unit on the outside of your home that will pump Freon into a set of coils that cool down to the temperature that you desire. After cooling the air exchanger will blow through the coils to cool the home down to the recommended settings or custom settings that you create.

Theres one other type of mass produced heating unit for your home and its name is radiant heat. This type of unit works with lead pipes that are run throughout your home to radiators in each room. When there is a call for heat the boiler installed most of the time in a basement kicks in and starts to pump through the contained lead or galvanized pipes to each individual radiator throughout the home. Once the liquid inside these pipes gets up to the temperature that you are looking for, the boiler shuts off and the radiator takes over emitting heat to the individual rooms. This is the cleanest heat that you can find when it comes to airborne contaminants, and a well qualified Berkeley heating and air conditioning specialist can install one of these efficient units in your home for added savings overall.
