CHECK OUT THE 6 IMPORTANT PARTS OF YOUR HVAC SYSTEM

 

Understanding the components and functions of your HVAC system can help with regular maintenance. Also, learning more about your heater or air conditioner can make it easier to identify and repair problems. You can avoid costly and inconvenient breakdowns. This will help you keep your Bluffton South Carolina home comfortable. Your HVAC system has many critical components. These include the heat exchanging unit, blower motors, combustion chambers, and condensers as well as the evaporator and thermostat.

 

  • EXCHANGER OF HOT

 

Your furnace's furnace's heat exchanger is a component that is part of your furnace’s housing. It absorbs heat, warms the air, and then turns off the furnace as heat from combustion increases. All furnaces come with heat exchangers. To prevent cracks and other damage, this crucial component is made of robust stainless steel with temperature-resistant alloys, and some models feature a specific duct that allows cool air to enter your heat exchanger faster and get you comfortable sooner.



  • MOTOR TO THE BLOWER

 

A fan driven by an electric blower motor is used to push warm air into your home's insulation, through your air registers, into every room after your heat exchanger cools down. The combustion of heated air is occurring before the blower motor turns off. Therefore, your home will have all the warm air from your heat exchanging unit and ductwork before the engine turns on to wait for the next heating cycle.

Variable-speed blower motors are able to control the airflow throughout your home at different speeds. It can be used to monitor and compensate for many issues in your heating and air conditioning system.

 

  • CHAMBER DURING COMBUSTION

 

To ensure maximum combustion, your furnace will supply air to the fuel within a combustion chamber. Also known as a burner, The heating cycle begins when the mixture of air and gases enters the gas furnace's combustion chamber. The mixture can then be ignited by a pilot or glow light. As more gas and other gases enter the burner, it will burn in a controlled flame.

A glow stick uses an electrical ignition system, while a pilot is a tube that releases small amounts of gas on a regular basis to ignite a flame. Glow sticks do not light up, but homeowners must light the pilot light if it goes out. Since they burn more fuel than glow sticks, pilot lights are only available in older furnaces. The pilot lights can also be dangerous if they become too bright.

 

  • COMPRESSOR/CONDENSER COIL

 

The compressor is the component of your heat or air conditioner that is located outside your home. A condenser heats up your home and releases heat into the atmosphere. This occurs when refrigerant undergoes compression and is converted from a warm liquid to a cool liquid. A fan blows air across the compressor to distribute heat and cool the refrigerant faster. Your HVAC system will then supply liquid refrigerant to the coil of your evaporator via an aluminum, copper, or tube.

 

  • COIL FOR EVAPORATOR

 

The evaporator is located within the heat pump's indoor unit. Your HVAC system circulates the liquid refrigerant through several small nozzles. This absorbs heat which decreases your home’s temperature.

 

  • THERMOSTAT

 

A thermostat contains temperature sensors that can be used to determine when your heater/air conditioner will turn off and on. You can connect it directly to your system by using certain connections. A thermostat should always be located near the heart of your home, away from draughts and stuffy places. There are many thermostats for heating and air conditioning systems. Each thermostat controls a distinct zone. You will save money by heating or cooling only occupied zones, and every member of your household will have the ability to adjust the temperature as needed.
