      How Does Furniture Affect Your HVAC’s Performance?

      Rooms won’t be complete without furniture and HVAC systems. However, each piece of furniture you add affects your HVAC’s heating and cooling performance for better or worse.  

      How Does Furniture Affect Your HVAC's Performance?

      Read on as Superior Air enumerates the positive and negative effects of furniture on your HVAC system.

      Positive Impact of Furniture on Your HVAC’s Performance

      • Solar Shading

      Excellent furniture placement lets you take advantage of solar shading. Areas hit by sunlight will become warm. Fortunately, you can use furniture to create a solar shade or barrier against sunlight. Indoor temperature only rises slightly and will not affect the overall cooling of the room, reducing strain on your HVAC system during summer.

      • Absorbs Heat

      Furniture and other furnishings trap heat during winter and help reduce heating costs. If you live in colder regions, add more pieces of furniture to improve indoor heat retention.

      Negative Impact of Furniture on Your HVAC’s Performance

      • Poor Airflow

      Watch out for furniture placed in the direct path of airflow from the vents as they block and restrict air from your HVAC system. This will cause the HVAC to work harder and strain its systems to maintain your desired indoor temperature. That said, place your furniture carefully away from vents to ensure efficient cooling.

      • Poor Indoor Air Quality

      Furniture can accumulate dust and grime. Over time, they can be a hotbed of allergens and other microorganisms. Clean air sweeping through pieces of furniture will pick up the pollutants and spread them all over the room. Clean your furniture regularly to prevent worsening indoor air quality.

      • AC Coil Damage

      The moisture in the evaporator coil might react with the volatile organic compounds from furniture materials and create an acidic substance. The acid might eventually cause the AC’s copper coil tubing to rust and cause refrigerant leaks.
