The majority of households rely on HVAC systems to make their homes more comfortable. For an HVAC unit to function as it should, however, all aspects of it must be well taken care of. But what happens if one element begins to encounter problems?
In this article, air conditioning installation company Air Products & Services sheds light on the most common issues that residential ventilation systems encounter, as well as why home ventilation shouldn’t be overlooked.
A noisy ventilation system is indeed a headache, but the noises coming from your vents may hint at a serious problem rather than a mild inconvenience. A noise equivalent to that of a quiet refrigerator running in a relatively silent room shouldn’t be a cause for concern. However, if the noise from your home’s ventilation system reaches disturbing sound levels, such as those that prevent you from getting a good night’s sleep, then here are some things you can do:
Use sound dampening materials around crucial areas
Check the static pressure and keep it below 0.3 inch w.c.
It’s best to have your trusted residential AC company perform these inspections for a more accurate diagnosis and solution.
Mold in the Ducts
Mold is a health hazard and should be dealt with accordingly as quickly as possible. Constant exposure to varying temperatures and moisture levels will most definitely result in mold growth. One solution to this issue is to insulate the exhaust ventilation ducts to protect against condensation.
Unequal Ventilation Air Distribution
Unequal ventilation air distribution–or the complete lack of it–can both be sources of frustration for everyone in the home. One of the main culprits is usually short-circuiting, which is when the ventilation air hasn’t been given enough time to mix well with the ambient air, resulting in uneven temperatures and undiluted pollutants.
