Ever wonder how your home is being heated or cooled throughout the year? As homeowners, we often think about HVAC units as some magical machine that dispenses our ideal temperature through vents around our home.
In reality, there’s much more going on behind the curtain. Here’s how your HVAC system works:
- A standard HVAC unit is a split system featuring an outdoor air conditioning unit and a coil (located inside your home) installed on top of the furnace.
- Electricity is what HVAC units use in order for the compressor to pump refrigerant through the system. All the while, the system gathers heat and moisture from inside your home and removes it.
- Any heat that the coil collects from the compressor is pumped outside the home all while cool air is forced back inside, thus giving your home central air conditioning.
- Central heating and cooling can be provided via a package unit, which many homeowners opt for in Massachusetts.
If you’re interested in a packaged system, then you will most likely want to shop around for an efficient gas-electric unit in which your central AC is electric and your furnace is gas-powered.
