Installing an air conditioner with a variable speed fan motor is a great way to save energy and improve the overall air quality in your home. This advanced technology constantly monitors and adjusts fan settings to account for any element of the air conditioning system that may restrict airflow, such as the location of the unit, ducts, or even dirty filters. With more uniform temperatures, better air filtration, and better humidity control, variable-speed blowers can make a huge difference in your home's comfort level. The SEER, or seasonal energy efficiency rating, measures how efficiently the air conditioner uses electricity to cool the air.
A variable-speed fan is likely to give it more years of service compared to a conventional system. When the air conditioning system is turned on, the fan is what circulates hot or cooled air throughout the building. This saves energy because the system doesn't have to be turned on and off frequently and spends much less time operating at maximum level. If your current system is out of warranty, upgrading it to a variable-speed system with a solid manufacturer's warranty can give you peace of mind knowing that you're covered in case it needs to be repaired.
Alford Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning can help you choose and install the best system for your home. When deciding which type of air conditioning system to buy, consider the pros and cons of each. A 5-ton variable speed heat pump may be a great option for a single-story home on a 2,000-square-foot lake in East Texas due to the heat and humidity of the summer months. If you think you need to adjust the speed of your fan or perform any other air conditioning repair or service, the Brennan Heating & Air Conditioning team is ready to help.
In addition, if you try to change the fan speed on your own or if you do any other type of work on your air conditioning system, the warranty will be void.
