Fall is upon us, and that means the atmospheric pressure is changing as well. Atmospheric pressure is defined as the pressure exerted by the earth's atmosphere at any given point. During this change of the season, we all need to begin learning what this means for our heating and cooling systems, and even our pockets.
Every outside heating and air unit needs to be able to handle change in weather and atmospheric pressure at any given time. Seeing as internal pressure is important to how a HVAC unit runs, It is good to also considering the pressure around the unit itself.
There are a few signs showing that your unit is experiencing negative air pressure. The signs include but are not limited to; random drafts of air, whistling sounds including odd noises, unregulated temperature in various rooms such is too hot or too cold, and the air seemingly pulling your door shut before you can do it yourself.
The main cause of negative air pressure within home is when the pressure inside your home is lower than the pressure outside. This is directly affected by the atmospheric pressure. Negative air pressure can bring various dangers inside your home such as poor air quality as well as Carbon Monoxide poisoning.
