Air Handlers With Variable-Speed Features Give Efficiency A Big Boost
Looking for year-round HVAC efficiency? Have you considered the benefits of variable-speed air handlers? Traditional air handlers only turn on and off, but variable-speed models give you the option of running your system at a lower capacity — one that is much more suited to the comfort demands of the day. Benefits include:
- Reduced energy costs: No longer required to run your HVAC system at full capacity, you’ll find that your energy consumption is greatly reduced. As a result, your monthly heating and cooling bills will be significantly reduced. Variable-speed air handlers can save you as much as 40 percent in energy costs annually.
- Improved dehumidification – When your system is moving air at full capacity, it makes it harder for your air conditioner to remove excess moisture. With a variable-speed air handler, your system has more time to address humidity concerns. Variable-speed systems provide as much as four times the dehumidification of conventional systems.
- Improved air quality – In addition to giving your system more time for dehumidification, slower moving air alleviates the demand put on your system’s methods of filtration. With improved filtration comes improved indoor air quality, which is good for your family and your system.
- Quieter operation – Another benefit of being able to operate your system at lower capacities is that your system isn’t as noisy. This is because your blower is allowed to increase and decrease speeds gradually and as needed.
- Comfort consistency – This gradual progression also provides the benefit of added comfort. Conventional systems are known for blasting home occupants with cold and hot air, but variable-speed air handlers make the amount of air you receive from your HVAC system much more consistent.
If your home has been plagued by humidity fluctuations, poor indoor air quality and inconsistent HVAC system performance, it may be time to consider an upgrade. For more information concerning the benefits of a variable-speed air handler, contact Symbiont Service Corp.today.
