Achieving Home Climate Control with a local HVAC Contractor
Tuesday, May 8, 2012 4:44 am
An experienced SW Kansas Hvac Contractor uses many different factors to decide what is best. These include the size and type of your home, walls, and windows, whether your home has insulation (and, if so, the type and density), the condition of your basement and attic, and whether your home is oriented towards or away from the sun. The Garden City, KS Hvac Contractor may also use a computerized system to calculate each room's heating and cooling needs, to further fine-tune their recommendations.


You may be thinking this sounds counter-intuitive. You might think a SW Kansas Hvac Contractor should be motivated to sell you the largest, most expensive, most impressive HVAC system available. In fact, this wouldn't help your Minneapolis Hvac Contractor out at all! A system that is too large for a home will work fast, but might not remove enough moisture from the air as it works. This means the air intended to cool you off will leave you feeling sticky and humid instead. Such a flaw in the system could even lead to mold growth or the generation of harmful bacteria inside your home!


A system that is too large will be forced to turn itself on and off more quickly. This is called "short-cycling", and it will cause your system to break down quicker, as well as placing a hefty increase on your heating and cooling bills. Likewise, a system that's too small will run itself down very quickly, simply because it can't heat or cool the entire space - it would be running constantly in an effort to do so. So, if the SW Kansas Hvac Contractor did try to sell you "the biggest and the best", they would only be complicating your life and theirs with needless service calls. Since a professional SW Kansas Hvac Contractor relies largely on word-of-mouth for their jobs, treating each customer right and getting them the best system possible is their goal.
