Like all things, there are better brands and then there are- the best brands. While most contractors will tell you that brand is irrelevant, that isn’t entirely true. There are manufacturers that build better equipment, even if it is installed poorly these brands will last longer than others that were installed sub-standard. We agree with the consensus- right installation is key. BUT, we want to take it one step further: Right installation is right for superior products.
Hello, and welcome to the Access Heating & Air Conditioning Blog! This site is intended to be a resource to anyone who is interested in Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning. Also known has HVAC. Some call it “H-V-A-C or H-vac” either way it means Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning. Although all of these things are integrated and work together to keep you warm in the Winter and cool in the Summer, they are each independent and required special knowledge and training for efficient and safe operation…
HVAC isn’t new by any means. In home HVAC systems began booming in during the industrial revolution and central air systems’ roots can be traced as far back as ancient Rome, who created duct work in homes and in public baths. The first part of this acronym addresses Heating. Usually this is done by a central heating system by using a boiler or a furnace to heat either air or water, and then using ductwork to transfer the produced heat into your home. The second part stands for Ventilation. This involves filtering, replacing, and exchanging existing indoor air to create better air quality. The last part, and my favorite, is Air Conditioning. In my opinion the best feeling is coming home to a refreshingly cool house after being in the hot Summer sun. Air Conditioners do this by removing the heat in your home. The concept of “removing heat” is similar to that feeling of evaporating rubbing alcohol on your skin. This is done by conduction or chemical refrigerants, which remove heat – producing cool air. Then that air is usually dispersed by the same ductwork your central heating system uses.
It’s good to be educated about your HVAC system as it is crucial for comfort and often one of the most expensive appliances in your home. To learn more stay posted to this blog or if you have questions or need service click this link Boise Heating. Thank You!
