All About Air Conditioner Coils

Since the majority of your energy budget is spent heating and cooling your home for the most efficient operation one should always make sure your air conditioner coils are clean. One of the major problems and hindrances to this is that the heater coil and air conditioner coils are near each other. By maintaining your heating and cooling systems you can save money and enjoy comfort year-round. Doing this in conjunction with selecting an air conditioner with a high Energy Efficiency Rating (EER) will enable you to cut your cooling costs down significantly. You should also definitely check your filter at the beginning of the cooling season.

Briefly, and in one illustrative embodiment, a cooling unit is activated to satisfy the sensible cooling demands of the inside space, and if after the sensible cooling demands have been satisfied, and it is determined that the latent cooling demands have not yet been met, both a cooling unit and a heating unit are activated to help provide additional latent cooling to the inside space.

When an air conditioner is operating at steady state, the air conditioner coils are sufficiently cool to cause water condensation, thus removing water from the air and reducing the humidity of the air and the inside space.

As is conventional in many HVAC systems, the cooling unit and the heating unit are sized to cool and heat the inside space, respectively, under expected worst case conditions, and operate in either a relatively constant “on” state or an “off” state, as desired.

When so provided, the cooling unit and the heating unit may not be precisely matched in output capacity, and thus when both are activated, the sensible cooling/heating of the inside space may be effected at least to some degree.

In an HVAC system having a heating unit sized to heat an inside space under an expected heating load and a cooling unit sized to cool the inside space under an expected cooling load, the improvement comprising: a controller adapted to determine whether the space is above a predetermined humidity threshold; and if so, operating both the heating unit and the cooling unit.

Here's how to troubleshoot a frozen air conditioner or evaporator coil. The following reference material can save you time and money. Conduct the following steps, before you contact a service technician - http://www.hvacpartsoutlet.com
