What is a HVAC system?

Have you heard of the acronym HVAC? It stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. But what exactly is it, and how does it work? An HVAC system typically includes a heat pump that controls the indoor temperature. This system is not only highly efficient but also environmentally friendly.

It works by moving heat from one place to another, rather than by converting fuel into heat like a furnace or boiler. That means it uses electricity to move heat rather than generate it. When you are cold, the heat pump extracts heat from the outside air, ground, or water. Inside the system, there is a refrigerant which evaporates even at a low temperature. The refrigerant circulates through a closed loop that includes an indoor and outdoor coil. The liquid is then compressed by a compressor in the outdoor unit. This action increases the temperature of the refrigerant. When the hot, pressurized refrigerant passes through the indoor coil, it releases heat to the indoor air, warming the space.

The exact opposite happens when you need to cool the space. As you can see, the heat pump can generate warm temperatures inside even when it is snowing or raining outside. The system works even in the coldest months of winter. As it uses energy contained in the water, in the air or in the ground, it is considered as a sustainable solution. Nevertheless, do not forget that electricity is needed to move heat.

What kind of heating system would suit you?

First of all, the choice of your next heating system will depend on several factors such as the initial installation cost, but also ongoing maintenance, energy efficiency as well as the price for the fuel or other energy source used to operate the system.

  • In the vast majority of the cases, an engineer will advise you a condensing boiler. It uses the exhaust gases before they are vented outside during the combustion process. It means you can benefit from an efficiency exceeding 100%.
  • Wood-burning stove uses wood as a fuel source to produce heat, which is then distributed throughout the home through natural convection or a fan.
  • Solar panels are also an interesting option. They may have higher upfront installation costs but can provide long-term savings on energy bills.
  • In contrast, electric baseboard heating systems do not cost much at the beginning, but are far more expensive to operate over time due to the high cost of electricity.

Do not forget the maintenance of your boiler

In Belgium, there are a few rules to follow in order to make sure your entire heating system comply with the legal standards. These often have ecological and safety goals. The frequency of the controls depends on the type of energy you use: fuel and wood require a visit per year while gas should be inspected once every two years. This difference is due to the fact that the combustion of solids and liquids create more waste, which may result in a fire or other kinds of problems (such as carbon monoxide leaks) if the burner is never cleaned. All the heating engineers who intervene must be certified by Cerga. This is a government-registration that prove the competences of your specialist and that the maintenance will be legally approved by the authorities.

A few tips to control your heating system

Depending on your habits, your use of heating and hot water may represent half of your energy spendings. If you want to reduce the bill, there are a few things you can do:

  • Use a room thermostat: it will help you have a better control on the temperature in every room of your house or apartment. For example, your bedroom has enough with only 18°C while a living room may need up to 21°C. The thermostat will also stop the heating system once the temperature is okay, therefore using less gas or fuel.
  • Turn off the radiator during the night: either you don't use the room that will be heated, either your bedsheets are enough to keep you warm.
  • Use a programmer or a smart system: you can decide what time the heating will turn on and off, for example, just a few minutes before you come home after your working day.
  • Do not forget to ventilate: it is a common misconception to think that you need to keep the heat inside at all costs. A home needs an air flow to get rid of condensation. If you skip this, you could see moisture appear which is dangerous for your health. Moreover, it expels cooking odours and inner pollution. Also note that a humid atmosphere is harder to heat than a dry one.
  • Arrange the disposition of your furniture and decoration: avoid placing a cabinet or a couch in front of your heater, it would block the air flow and, as a result, the heat propagation inside the room. If you have curtains, use them to keep the warm inside as soon as you don't need the natural light anymore. Put rugs on the ground, etc.
  • Make a quick check of your radiators once in a while in order to know if your material is still working as it should. If not, you can call a heating engineer to have your maintenance done.
