An HVAC motor, work unit of HVAC equipment, is vital to the functioning of heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. This mechanism is responsible for the distribution of heated or cooled air in any building structure. Also, an HVAC motor helps circulated air return to the internal air handler of the unit. When a blower motor, also known as ventilator motor, malfunctions, it can greatly affect the efficiency of the system and even cause serious mechanical breakdown of other system components.
HVAC fan motor controls are needed for regulating air conditioning and heating system motor. Either manually or automatically, it controls the on and off function of the HVAC motor. Common in both residential and commercial HVAC systems is the thermostat controller system which is usually an automatic program.
Air Conditioner Motor
In straight air conditioning systems, the air conditioning fan motor is regularly used when the system is in operation. The air conditioning blower motor is also the main running motor during summer seasons. However, in winter days, this motor is mostly on idle mode and powered back only as spring blooms. In this certain situation, the air conditioning fan motor is at high risk for rusting and seizing up. This is a good reason why system maintenance is important. Have your air conditioner checked by a professional HVAC technician to ensure smooth running when winter ends.
Heat Pump Motor
A heat pump fan motor of heating systems functions daily during winter season for heat is needed to keep an area warm and comfortable. Similar with the air conditioning fan motor, this motor is a straight drive to the propeller fan pulling air through coils of the condenser.
