HVAC systems are used in all homes, not just the manufactured homes. The term HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning system and it will be beneficial for you to understand its working before you put your manufactured home for sale.
Normal HVAC systems make use of refrigerant evaporation to offer conditioned and cooled air inside the manufactured home. These systems can also be used to offer heat in winter via the same ventilation system but will make use of a furnace or heat pump to provide the required heat. Therefore, in simple terms, an HVAC system is a simple centralized system that can offer air conditioning and heating, making use of the same ventilation network.
Types of HVAC Systems
There are mainly four different varieties of HVAC systems uses in residential and commercial applications. These are explained in brief below.
Furnace and Condensing HVAC Systems
This type of the HVAC system pulls in the outside air and processes it. This processed air is then used to replace the polluted inside air of the home, which is then expelled by the system. This type of system is much common in old manufactured homes.
Heat Pump and Fan Coin HVAC Systems
The working of this type of system is similar to that of the Furnace and Condensing HVAC systems, but the difference is that a single pump does both heating and cooling functions in the system. This type of system can be more economical to the homeowner in terms of cost and installation charges.
Zoning HVAC Systems
This type of HVAC system is new when compared to the other two systems and break the house into different zones. Each of the zones will have its own thermostat control. Housing experts say that the zoning HVAC systems are more efficient when compared to the other types of systems.
Packaged HVAC Systems
These systems combine the elements of both fan and heat pump systems and are usually used in commercial buildings. The problem with this HVAC system is that installation of this system can be a difficult and time-consuming task.
These are the different types of HVAC systems used in US homes and commercial buildings. All these systems work in different ways and this can depend on the application that the system is used for. Some types of HVAC systems break the manufactured home or the building into many areas, whereas the others address the cooling and heating needs of the building at once.
