Natural ventilation is the ventilation of a building with outside air without using fans or other mechanical systems. It can be via operable windows, louvers, or trickle vents when spaces are small and the architecture permits. In more complex schemes, warm air is allowed to rise and flow out high building openings to the outside (stack effect), causing cool outside air to be drawn into low building openings. Natural ventilation schemes can use very little energy, but care must be taken to ensure comfort. In warm or humid climates, maintaining thermal comfort solely via natural ventilation might not be possible. Air conditioning systems are used, either as backups or supplements. Air-side economizers also use outside air to condition spaces, but do so using fans, ducts, dampers, and control systems to introduce and distribute cool outdoor air when appropriate.
Beyond changing the air filter on a regular basis, one of the best ways to ensure your home's HVAC system is operating at peak efficiency is to have a qualified professional HVAC contractor tune up the system on a biannual basis. Energy Star recommends scheduling your system tune-up around the beginning of daylight savings time in the fall and its end in the spring. It's an easy way to remember to have your system serviced before the peak heating and cooling seasons. A standard tune-up is likely to cost you between $70 and $100, but it's money well spent.
We moved into a new home and had issues with the heating ducts in one of the rooms. We called HVAC based on other yelp reviews. Overall, everyone we dealt with were friendly, professional and knowledgeable: From the people on the phone managing the schedule to the those performing the work in our house. The day before the scheduled work we asked if additional work could be done (clothes dryer duct cleaning), which they were able to accommodate. The people working at the house were on time, very polite, took great care to keep the house clean during the entire job and explained everything when they were finished. I will certainly use HVAC again.
Wow! These guys rock! I had issues with our fireplace for a while and the last company who "fixed" the issue basically charged me a lot of money and literally left me standing in the cold. Next they said it would cost me over $700 to fix the whole thing and they never came back. Finally I was able to find some good guys to fix the issue. Tony and Paul from HVAC were not only really friendly, they diagnosed the issue really fast and fixed it the same day. And it was 7 times less than what the other company asked for!!! Next time I know who to call! 5 Stars!
