Grand Prairie Commercial Air Conditioning
Commercial clients often call our Grand Prairie air conditioning repair team to install or repair a package system type of heating and air system, all components are located in a single outdoor unit that may be located on the ground but is usually on the roof. Central air conditioning performs like a window type air conditioner but has several added benefits.
Grand Prairie Air Conditioning Should Include a Filtration System
You have noticed that when air handling unit turns on, room air is drawn in from various parts of your home or office or retail store through return air ducts. The air is them pulled through a filter, removing dust and lint are removed. Grand Prairie now installs and services very sophisticated air filtration systems that can remove microscopic pollutants including viruses.
The filtered air is cooled (or heated by the furnace or heat pump) and routed to air supply ductwork that carries it back to your children’s bedrooms. Whenever the air conditioner is running, this cycle repeats continually. Another benefit is that the central air conditioning unit is located outside the home, offering whisper quiet cool air compared to the noisy, window air conditioning units we use to enjoy.
Heat Pumps Grand Prairie TX
Tens of thousands of homes in the DFW have electric powered, air-source heat pumps. These work well here in the Dallas TX area because of our moderate winters. We know they don’t seem moderate, but in the grand scheme of things, Grand Prairie winters are mild compared to Chicago! Grand Prairie heat pumps use the difference between outdoor air temperatures and indoor air temperatures to cool and heat your home.
Grand Prairie Heating and Air Suggests You Consider Air Source Heat Pumps
When heating and air equipment earns the ENERGY STAR rating, it means the heat pump or other appliance meets strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy. It means that ENERGY STAR qualified heat pumps have a higher seasonal efficiency rating (SEER) and heating seasonal performance factor (HSPF) than standard, cheaper, builders grade units, which makes them about 8% percent more efficient than standard new models and 20% more efficient than the builders grade equipment you probably have in your home now. Also keep in mind that saving energy prevents pollution.
Grand Prairie Air Conditioning Performs Humidity Control
Air conditioning equipment usually reduces the humidity of the air processed by the system. The relatively cold (below the dew point) evaporator coil condenses water vapor from the processed air, much like a cold drink will condense water on the outside of a glass.
The water is drained, removing water vapor from the cooled space and thereby lowering its relative humidity. Since humans perspire to provide natural cooling by the evaporation of perspiration from the skin, drier air (up to a point) improves the comfort provided. The comfort air conditioner is designed to create a 40% to 60% relative humidity in your Grand Prairie home or business.
