Heating And Cooling Systems

What Are Heating and Cooling Systems?

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning ( HVAC) systems are designed to meet the environmental comfort of people in their homes, offices, industrial complexes, etc.

HVAC systems are widely used in different types of buildings, such as industrial, commercial, residential, and institutional buildings.

An efficient HVAC system aims to provide thermal control and indoor comfort based on the principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer.

Depending on the outside air, the outdoor air is sucked into the buildings and either heated or cooled before it is circulated to the occupied places. And then it is exhausted to the ambient air or reused in the heating and cooling system.

People who live in a hot or cold environment may require a single-stage system that aims to produce just heating or cooling. They seem to be inexpensive, but they are also rather inefficient and will typically work at capacity even when not required.

HVAC systems can also be designed to provide humidity control, and both humidifiers and dehumidifiers can be added as options for heating and cooling systems.

People who live in extremely dry or tropical environments find these additions to the system important. Therefore, some customers prefer the installation of a separate humidifier or dehumidifier systems so that they can manage the humidity of their environment.

On the other hand, zoned systems are built to heat or cool individual parts of your house. This is achieved by designing zone valves and valves within vents and ductwork that selectively obstruct the flow of air.

This is of immense significance for people with larger properties as it prevents the system from heating or cooling areas in the home that are not in use. Hence, it also saves us energy consumption and reduces billing costs.

Local heating and cooling systems are often located within or adjacent to living spaces and represent a single location. These consist of local heating systems, local air-conditioning systems, local ventilation systems, and separate systems.

The central systems have ducted systems built mainly for cooling the space and have the capability of providing multi-zone temperature control through the use of air-louver-control boxes.

This is good for spaces that are used occasionally and can be 'switched off' when no one uses space to save on costs.

Pacific Air has a team of efficient electricians and engineers to carefully design the heating and cooling system, depending on the type of property.

Furnace Cleaning Cost

Most people have a strict maintenance schedule that they abide by in order to keep their home clean and keep their property maintained.

However, despite the utmost care, they may ignore to take care of one important thing. And that is the furnace.

If you have got a furnace, it should be part of your regular maintenance. Furnace cleaning is essential all year round, but it is particularly important before the winter.

Although your furnace works to heat your house, it ends up taking on a lot of troublesome particles.

An average furnace is a magnet for dust, dirt, and other microscopic particles and debris. If you don't keep your furnace clean, you can spread harmful debris around your home.

This can cause a number of health issues. You may find yourself more prone to colds and other viruses and germs.

Microscopic residues can easily cause inflammation of the lungs that are already sensitive to the environment. Moreover, dust, dirt, or debris can easily cause asthma or allergy attack.

Unclean furnace generally reduces indoor air quality, and poor indoor air quality can harm you even if you have no allergies or other health problems.

Apart from health problems, neglecting furnace cleaning may have an impact on its performance. If it's not cleaned properly, you can find that your furnace doesn't heat your home evenly or as effectively as it did in the past.

Now that you know it is important to clean the furnace, you are probably curious about the best times to clean the furnace.

Unlike other parts of your house, your furnace does not require weekly or monthly cleaning. The best time to clean your furnace is before and after the winter.

To keep your furnace in good working order, it's necessary to have it cleaned regularly.

What Is The Approximate Furnace Cleaning Cost?


National average furnace cleaning costs range from $60 to $80, although prices may vary greatly depending on where you live in the country and what your furnace maintenance includes.

Every HVAC company may have different rates for different levels of furnace maintenance.

However, note that residential furnace cleaning costs less than commercial. While you might pay $20 to $40 per vent for residential work, commercial projects come in at least 30% higher and at least $35 to $50 per hour.

Since businesses vary, you will need to get a quote to know exactly how much you will have to pay.

Commercial projects almost always have custom some ductwork. So they typically are much larger and harder to clean than residential ducts.

Therefore, they have much larger furnaces, blowers, and AC units that increases the furnace cleaning costs.

At Pacific Air USA, we offer the best quality service at competitive furnace cleaning costs.

Just give us a call and we will dispatch an expert quality control team to verify that your system is running optimally. We will also explain you the thermostat settings, go over the warranty information with you, and answer any questions you may have.

Air Conditioning Duct Cleaning

Did you know that annually, a home collects almost 40lbs of dust, allergens, and dirt on average? Whenever you turn on the air conditioner in your room, all the sediments of dust particles start circulating across the home, leading to respiratory diseases such as asthma.

These particles of dust get stored in the ventilation system, which blocks the ductwork. Hence, such a build-up in the airways can cause restricted airflow causing the system to work harder and consume more energy.

The ductwork installed in your house is hidden because the air conditioners draw air in from outside to cool, which makes it easier for contaminants to make their way in.

Since the ductwork is not visible, you need to look for these signs to know if the air conditioning duct needs cleaning.

Hints That Indicate Your Air Conditioner System Requires Air Conditioning Duct Cleaning:

  1. Mold in the air conditioner system:

Your air conditioning system needs a good air conditioning duct cleaning and service on a regular basis. In fact, most manufacturers and HVAC service experts advise the scheduling of at least two visits per year.

Both HVAC systems and furnaces can develop condensation. Therefore, mold growth is a possibility, especially if you live in a humid climate.

The mold found on the air conditioner system or furnace does not give guarantee that your ductwork has been affected, but it certainly increases the chances. An air duct cleaning technician will carefully clean your home's HVAC system and ductwork to eliminate the mold and prevent it from returning.

  1. Your house had a renovation recently

Construction is a messy process, and it spreads a lot of dust and debris even if the constructors are careful about it and do a proper cleaning.

The surfaces might look tidy and clean, but the fine dirt particles always find their way to the air ducts and settle in.

Therefore, it is essential to get air conditioning duct cleaning.

  1. You have a dusty home

If you live in a polluted area, your house will be dusty even if you clean often. If you see the surfaces of furniture in your house covered with dust just after you finished cleaning, then it means you need the ductwork cleaned as well.

  1. You notice the increased heating or cooling bills

The heating and cooling costs are expected to be relatively predictable from year to year. However, if you get an electricity bill that is prominently high, or if you observe at your records and notice that your utility bills are much higher now than they were a year ago, the ductwork of your home might be the cause.

Therefore, get the air conditioning duct cleaning service from Pacific Air USA. We provide the best quality service at affordable rates.

Our team consists of professional experts who clean the ducts and remove all the particles even microscopic. So you can rely on us.
