Coach Tim shows us a quick start-to-finish process covering typical Heating and Ventilation topics you’ll run across in your home renovation project.

For being one of the biggest power users nowadays, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems can spend a lot of money, if not maintained regularly. Especially when used in large facilities, these systems must be used with caution, and be serviced regularly, in order to expand their life span, as well as reduce the cost of their usage.

These are several tips on how to use efficiently, thus reducing energy consumption and the cost of their usage, of course.


If used for heating, HVAC systems can be used in a more effective way, by reducing the power used, meaning that you can without a problem reduce temperature for 1°C. This is almost unnoticeable difference, but in a longer run, this will save you a lot of money. In addition, if your boilers are perhaps old and worn-off, replacing them or servicing the existing ones is something highly recommended to be done. In addition, there is system of fans, used especially in larger-scale halls, which pushes the heated air downward, thus reducing the part of the hall which is heated drastically. On the other hand, if you are using this system in your house, consider installing programmable thermostat. This investment may seem as a minor one, but in fact, it will reduce your bills, for it can be set to turn off or on in a different time during the day. For example, if you are leaving home at 7 o’clock, set it to turn off at 7:15. If you are returning at 5 PM, program it to turn on at 4:30, in order to heat up the house, before you return.


This is one of the main reasons to use this system. Properly ventilated house or facility can save money, actually, for if being damp, it can cost you quite a penny to renew it by painting. But, be careful, if not used as it should, it will only eat up through your energy bill. Consider installing efficient motors used in larger facilities, for the price difference can be minor, but in a longer run, the energy saved is quite noticeable. Also, do not let it run all the time, for the heat generated by motors can actually heat up your building, especially during summer, when temperature is on the rise, and this eventually rises the global temperature. As for the house, again consider using any form of time setting, in order to switch it on or off in different intervals.
