What happens when your central air conditioning system produces little to no cooling?
If you cannot get the air conditioning system to activate at all, then the most common causes lie with a blown circuit breaker or fuse, improperly set or faulty thermostat or an internal switch being off.
There are various types of HVAC systems, including the two major types, residential and commercial HVAC systems. Residential HVAC systems are typically used in homes and possibly small businesses. Commercial HVAC systems are used in office buildings, large retail stores, warehouses and other large buildings.
A commercial HVAC system is much larger than a residential HVAC system. This visible difference doesn’t need too much explaining. Bigger buildings need bigger HVAC systems because of the amount of space they need to serve. They’re also more complex in terms of dampers and thermostats.
Due to the size difference and the size of the areas they both serve, the amount of power differs as well. The commercial HVAC system needs a much higher level of power to function.
Your AC works hard throughout the summer months to keep you cool. Summer can bring the fun outside, but the energy bills up inside. If you live in an area that sees extreme heat, having a home at a comfortable temperature is essential.
Many innovations in HVAC have been made since the early air conditioner, making them fit easily into home design and more sustainable for the environment. Air conditioners that are not serviced properly contribute to high energy costs and less efficient home cooling.
If you use an energy-efficient unit or do not wish to replace your system, there is still plenty you can do to cut costs. Be sure to change the filters regularly and have routine check-ups to ensure your HVAC system is working properly. Fans can help keep the cool air circulating so your air conditioner won’t have to work as hard.
