Why should you consider a variable-speed model for your next HVAC system? In contrast to a conventional HVAC system, which has just one speed, a variable-speed system has an indoor air handler with several speed settings available for the fan and they can change the fan speed as needed for precise temperature control. With control over both heater and air conditioner, you and your family can enjoy added comfort, indoor air quality, and energy savings in your Lawrenceburg, Indiana home.
Conventional HVAC systems bring your home’s temperature to the setting on your thermostat, and then they shut off. They come on again to readjust when your house starts getting too hot or cold. Since variable-speed systems stay on at a low speed for a longer period of time, you won’t have to deal with uncomfortable temperature fluctuations. Plus, there will be less noise from your indoor air handler’s fan, and you won’t hear your HVAC system shut off and come on frequently.
Indoor Air Quality
Since a variable-speed system stays on longer, more air flows through its filter every hour compared to the conventional one-speed until. This abundant air flow allows the filter to catch more pollutants, including dirt, dust, pollen, and pet dander. Removing these contaminants can improve your indoor air quality and prevent asthma or allergy symptoms, eye irritation, rashes, and other health problems.
Variable-speed systems need less power than conventional units because they don’t normally run as fast. They also don’t need to come on or shut off as often. These features reduce wear and tear and could decrease your utility bills. Installing a variable-speed HVAC system returns your investment through increased energy savings more than a standard, one-speed unit does. In addition, a variable-speed heater or air conditioner may also increase the value of your home as well.
