Stages and speeds are two terms that are usually heard when we are on the lookout for a new HVAC system or if we want to install one. When choosing an HVAC system for your home, it is important to take note of these two features. You will get to enjoy some other benefits and more energy and money saving if you can spend a bit more.
There are two distinct levels in which an HVAC system with a two-stage compressor operates in order for it to provide optimal air conditioning for the home, building or establishment. Normal heating and cooling systems usually just turn on or off. Meanwhile, this type of system doesn’t just merely turn on or off. It continuously runs at stages that depend on the amount or kind of cooling your home needs.
The variable speed, on the other hand, means that your HVAC system has the ability to blow air at a relatively lower or higher level instead of merely turning on or off when needed. Hearing your system cycle on or off constantly means that you have a single-stage system. This cycling is considered to be less like because the system can transition to either a higher or a lower level instead of shutting down or turning on completely. This ensures energy save up due to the fact that you do not need to wait longer just to turn on or off your system.
Although the upfront cost is higher, many people prefer an HVAC system with different stages and speeds for the energy savings. Since the system adjusts to maintain the temperature in the house, it saves energy on your utility bills. Since it doesn’t have to cycle off and on completely, it further saves energy. It’s also able to run at a lower speed for more extended periods of time than a single speed system, which also saves energy.

Is outdoor or indoor pollution a concern in your neck of the woods? You will find out soon enough if you spend any time outdoors during pollen season or when the humidity levels are extremely high. Can you improve the air quality in your home?
There’s plenty you can do to improve indoor air quality, from cleaning regularly to being particular about what type of cleaners you use. The type of HVAC system in your home also plays an important role in your indoor air quality.
Conventional heating and cooling systems with ducts can pose several different issues. Ductwork that has separated causes you to lose conditioned air, costing you more money to heat and cool the affected areas. Leaky ductwork can also introduce and distribute dust and other biohazards throughout your home.
Ductless systems prevent polluted air from spreading throughout your home. Filtration systems in ductless units also clean the air as it circulates through the system, ensuring that you’re always breathing clean air.
Ductless heating and cooling systems are just what the name implies: a complete heating and cooling system void of any duct network. Instead of distributing air through ducts, a ductless indoor air handler blows air in your home. The lack of ductwork not only reduces energy waste and improves efficiency, but it also improves indoor air quality.
