Not just any HVAC system will meet the needs of your home and family. Instead, you need a heating and cooling system that’s designed for your Abernathy, Texas, home. That’s why Sinclair Heating, Cooling, Plumbing offers HVAC consultations personalized for your home and family. From the ideal-sized system size for your home, to solutions for indoor air quality problems, here are six things you can learn from an HVAC consultation.
Ideal Air Conditioner Size and Capacity
When you replace your old cooling system with a new air conditioner, you can just get a system of the same size and capacity, right? That’s not always the case. Our team of experienced technicians uses the Manual J protocol, which is an industry standard, to determine the right size, capacity, and design for your HVAC system.
In fact, you might be surprised at the number of factors that go into determining the right sizing for your HVAC system. From home size and layout, to window number and placement, to the level of shade your home receives, a long list of factors affect your home’s HVAC system.
How to Increase Efficiency
Older air conditioners often struggle in terms of efficiency, especially when compared to the advanced technology that’s available today. If you’re upgrading your system, our team may recommend that you invest in an Evolution 1- and 2-Stage Air Conditioner, which can achieve up to 21 seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER), an impressive efficiency rating.
Even if you aren’t in the market for a new air conditioner, we may still be able to help you boost your system’s efficiency. For instance, a smart thermostat will allow you to program your HVAC system for efficient operation, while still keeping you cool and comfortable.
How to Handle High Humidity
Abernathy residents are no strangers to humidity, but your home is no place for excess moisture. After assessing your home’s humidity level, our team can show you how to use your thermostat to keep humidity levels manageable.
If your home frequently struggles with high humidity, we may recommend that you invest in a whole-house dehumidifier. This HVAC add-on pulls moisture from the air, giving your HVAC system a break and keeping your indoor air quality high.
How to Eliminate Airborne Contaminants
If our team notices a high level of airborne contaminants in your home, we may recommend that you use a more effective air filter or that you replace it more frequently. If your home has serious pet dander, pollen, or dust problems however, you may need a more effective solution. Investing in a whole home air purifier is a smart move for many homeowners, especially if your household includes allergy or asthma sufferers.
How to Improve Ventilation
Ventilation can be another tricky indoor air quality issue for homeowners, but our experienced team can help. If we notice that your home seems to harbor stale air, we’ll check to be sure that your HVAC system is reaching every room of your home. In some cases, we’ll also recommend that you invest in an energy-recovery ventilator, which replaces stale air with fresh air every time your HVAC system cycles. These high-tech devices capture the thermal energy from the outgoing air and use it to precondition the incoming air, which can also give your HVAC system an energy efficient boost.
Zoning Systems for Your Home
If you have a multi-level home or if your home tends to have a few different temperature zones throughout, you may be wondering how to manage heating and cooling without wasting energy. Our HVAC technicians can talk you through your zoning options, which can keep your family comfortable while increasing energy efficiency.
Zoning effectively divides your home’s ductwork into a few distinct zones, each of which gets its own thermostat. This technology doesn’t always work with older HVAC systems, but most new systems can easily accommodate zoning. With the right smart thermostat, you may even be able to control the temperature settings in each zone from the convenience of your smartphone.
