Air Conditioning Options

As you probably know, the Australian summertime can be extremely hot. When I moved to Australia from England, I knew it would be warm, but I wasn't ready for the intense heat. I had bought a home on the outskirts of Sydney. It was a great place but unfortunately, it didn't have an HVAC system. I moved in during the winter time, so this wasn't a problem. However, when the weather began to warm up, the interior of my home became very uncomfortable. I called in an HVAC contractor who explained my options before installing a modern HVAC system which keeps my house nice and cool.

Why you should install a larger fan for your air conditioning system

by Herminia Lopez

Are you frequently experiencing stale air in the home? Are some rooms always warmer than others? Does your air conditioning system work too hard with too little results? If so, you may need to install a larger fan. Your HVAC system consists of many different moving parts that produce cool and warm air as necessary.

While you may pay attention to your compressor, ducts/vents and air filters, don't forget that your fan plays an important role in circulating air around the home

In air conditioning systems, the fan blades are responsible for propelling cool air through your system of ducts and into various rooms. If your fan is undersized, you may experience issues with proper air circulation. The good news is that this problem can be fixed by installing a larger fan.

Here are several reasons why purchasing a larger fan is a good investment for your home.

More durable blades for circulating air

Similar to how a ceiling fan revolves around continuously to propel cool air, the fan in your HVAC system has blades that deliver a fresh supply of air into your home. The fan plays two important roles. First, it draws warm air from the home into your compressor system. The air is then cooled, after which your fan channels this cooled air through your ductwork.

If your fan is undersized, it will have a hard time keeping up with your cooling needs. You may even wonder whether your system is damaged or if the thermostat is faulty. Installing a larger fan makes the overall system more efficient. Because larger fans draw in more warm air from the home, you will enjoy increased comfort moving forward.

Cool the home faster

After a long day in the heat, the only thing you would want to do is go back home and enjoy cool air coming out of your vents. But many homeowners have to wait for a while before their home is cool enough for comfort.

An undersized fan will take longer to propel cool air and reduce temperatures in the home. But with a larger fan, you'll be able to enjoy comfort faster, even when it's very hot outside.

Eliminate hot spots in your home

If some rooms in your home get cooler than others, you may be forced to keep moving around just to remain comfortable. Hot spots arise when air isn't being circulated effectively. Consider installing a larger fan to ensure that every part of the home is at the same temperature.
