Below is an example of the HVAC equipment that we install and repair:
Central Air Conditioning System
System in which air is treated at a central location and distributed to and from rooms by one or more fans and a series of ducts.
The part of the outdoor air conditioner or heat pump that compresses and pumps refrigerant to meet household cooling requirements.
The outdoor portion of an air conditioner or heat pump that either releases or collects heat, depending on the time of year.
This is the unit that sits outside the home. It contains the compressor and condenser coil.
The method by which air is channeled from the furnace or the blower coil throughout your home.
Energy Efficient Rating. The rating that Underwriter Laboratories (UL) gives each unit when it is tested for compliance with energy laws. It, in effect, IS the rating of the equipment.
Electronic Air Cleaner
An electronic device that filters out large particles and bio-aerosols in indoor air.
A label attached to HVAC systems that meet or exceed the EPA guidelines for energy efficiency.
The part of the air conditioner or heat pump that is located inside the air handler. Its primary function is to absorb the heat from the air in your house.
Located in the furnace, the heat exchanger transfers heat to the surrounding air, which is then pumped throughout the home.
A heat pump is an HVAC unit that heats or cools by moving heat. During the winter, a heat pump draws heat from outdoor air and circulates it through your homes air ducts. In the summer, it reverses the process and removes heat from your house and releases it outdoors.
An indoor air quality device that introduces moisture to heated air as it passes from the furnace into the duct work for distribution throughout the home.
An automatic device used to maintain humidity at a fixed or adjustable set point.
Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning
A thermostat with the ability to record different temperature/time settings for your heating and/or cooling equipment.
A chlorine-free refrigerant that meets the EPA’s newest, more stringent environmental guidelines.
A chemical that produces a cooling effect while expanding or vaporizing. Most residential air conditioning units contain the standard R-22 refrigerant, or Freon.
Two copper lines that connect the outdoor air conditioner or heat pump to the indoor evaporator coil.
A heating and cooling system contained in the outdoor unit.
A combination heat pump or air conditioner with indoor components, such as a furnace or blower coil. Split systems should be matched for optimal efficiency.
Monitors temperature and humidity and adjusts heating or cooling system to maintain desired levels.
Usually found on an inside wall, this device operates as a control to regulate your heating and cooling equipment, allowing you to adjust your home comfort at the touch of a switch.
Unit of measurement for determining cooling capacity. One ton equals 12,000 BTU’s.
Provides two levels of heat output for greater temperature control.
Variable Speed Motor
Automatically adjusts the control of heat airflow for ultimate comfort.
