The Secret Life of HVAC Systems: An Inside Look at What Happens After You Adjust the Thermostat

The world of HVAC systems is often hidden behind walls and ceilings, operating quietly to maintain the comfort of our homes and businesses. Once you adjust the thermostat to your desired temperature, a secret life unfolds within the labyrinth of ducts and machinery. A closer look at what happens behind the scenes reveals the intricate workings of these systems.
A-Plus Quality, a team of professionals dedicated to HVAC solutions, is here to shed light on the covert operations of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. Once the thermostat setting changes, the HVAC system springs into action, orchestrating a series of processes to ensure optimal comfort.
As the temperature control signal is received, the system activates the heating or cooling components accordingly. Air is then drawn in through return ducts, passing through filters that purify it from dust and particles. The conditioned air is then propelled through the ductwork, reaching every room and corner of the space.
Simultaneously, sensors monitor indoor and outdoor conditions, constantly adjusting the system to maintain the desired temperature. The intricate dance of fans, compressors, and coils works seamlessly to regulate the climate, providing a comfortable environment for occupants.
However, the secret life of HVAC systems goes beyond temperature control. They also play a crucial role in maintaining indoor air quality, removing pollutants and ensuring a healthy living or working environment. Regular maintenance by professionals like A-Plus Quality is essential to keep these systems running smoothly, preventing issues and maximizing efficiency.
In trusting A-Plus Quality for your HVAC needs, you gain access to a team that understands the intricacies of this secret life. Their expertise ensures that your HVAC system operates at its best, offering not only comfort but also improved air quality for a healthier living space.

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.  

  • Most common Boiler Issues

    - Boiler fails to ignite
    - Low pressure
