Also Providing Fan Coil Unit Maintenance Services in Chevy Chase, Potomac & the Surrounding Areas

Do you depend on your heat pump to keep your Maryland home at a comfortable temperature all year? If so, your fan coil plays an important role in your everyday life. A fan coil is an indoor component of a heat pump system and includes the fan and the heating or cooling coil. Since each type of fan coil is designed for a particular refrigerant, your fan coil must be the same brand as your heat pump.

A variable speed fan coil can improve comfort levels in your home by improving humidity control and heating temperatures. Additionally, energy-efficient fan coils can improve airflow which can help save energy on cooling.

If you’re interested in installing a new, highly efficient fan coil in your Montgomery County, Maryland or NW Washington, DC home, call (301) 241-9636 and schedule an appointment!

How Does a Fan Coil Unit Work?

A fan coil unit works by first receiving hot or cold water from a central plant. Then, the fan coil circulates the water through a coil to heat or cool an area via heat transfer. Fan coils usually have their own internal thermostats which can be wired to operate with a remote thermostat.

There are two types of fan coil units: two-pipe fan coils and four-pipe fan coils.

  • Two-pipe fan coils have two pipes—one supply pipe and one return pipe. Depending on the time of year, the supply pipe pumps either hot or cold water into the unit.
  • Four-pipe fan coils have two supply pipes and two return pipes, allowing hot and cold water to enter the building simultaneously. Since it is often necessary to heat and cool different areas of a building at the same time, four-pipe fan coils are the most commonly used fan coils.

A fan coil’s output can be controlled by either controlling the speed of the fan, throttling the flow of water in the coil, cycling the fan, or tuning the electric coils on and off. In general, fan coil units have control panels that will allow you to control all of these things individually.
