If you’re a modern homeowner, you’ve likely upgraded many appliances around your house. Though smart refrigerators and the newest gadgets usually top lists of cool tech trends, have you considered how your HVAC could benefit from an upgrade? Better efficiency and quieter operations are just two of the many perks of installing a variable speed air handler in your Florida home.
Energy efficiency is a top benefit of one of these systems. A variable speed air handler is a component that a technician can add as part of your HVAC system. It helps circulate the air throughout the home, so whether you want to be warmer or colder, the handler is helping you get there without raising energy costs. The handler maintains a more consistent temperature throughout your home, meaning the HVAC won’t have to turn off and on as often.
A Quieter HVAC System
A normal heating unit without a variable handler works by raising or lowering the temperature to where you want it, turning off, and then lower or raising the temperature again when it’s past a certain point. You’ll hear the HVAC constantly turning off and on, and the fan is always running at the same noisy speed.
However, the variable handler will keep the HVAC from starting loudly and will only run the fan at high speed when needed (for example, if you raise or lower the temperature). Otherwise, it can keep running on a low setting or turn off and on without making much noise.
Better Air Quality
If indoor air quality is a priority for you, look into a variable air handler. With a normal unit, the air becomes stagnant when the HVAC turns off. A variable handler, however, keeps the air circulating. This prevents dust from collecting and can greatly improve the air quality in your home.
Variable air handlers offer numerous benefits for homeowners. Make a call to E.C. Waters Air Conditioning & Heat at 407-603-9144 if you have questions about these systems or need any other services related to your HVAC.
