A variable speed HVAC system can change the speed of its compressor to match the heating and cooling needs of your home in Savannah, Georgia. A conventional system can only turn on or off, which causes it to use extra energy. It also doesn’t offer as much comfort as it could for you and your family. In contrast, a variable speed system is durable, improves indoor air quality, and lowers your utility bills.
Lower Utility Bills
A variable speed HVAC system is a worthwhile investment due to the long-term savings it provides; it is energy-efficient and will lower your utility bills. Variable speed systems are better at regulating the humidity in your home because they can be left on for longer periods of time than conventional systems. While heaters and air conditioners dehumidify the air in your home, the moisture will come back when the system is off. Variable speed systems work at a lower speed for longer periods of time, providing increased comfort and savings.
Systems with variable speed technology last longer than traditional systems, as they don’t have to work as hard. It’s also not necessary to turn them on and off again all the time. This increased durability allows you to avoid expensive, inconvenient breakdowns and repairs for your system.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Since the airflow from a variable speed system is almost constant, it reduces the amount of dust, dirt, mold, and pollen in your breathing air, which in turn reduces allergy and asthma symptoms. The extra airflow also makes connecting a whole-home air purifier or a UV lamp to your ductwork more effective. Just keep in mind that you may need to change your filter more often than usual.
