Air conditioning and heating units make up HVAC systems that keep comfortable air flowing through our homes. It’s important to understand how these systems work so that you can properly maintain them and prevent costly repairs. This video explains some of the basics of HVAC systems and how they function.
HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. All of the equipment, technology, and processes that go into heating, cooling, and ventilating a property make up an HVAC system. This means heating and cooling units, thermostats, electrical wiring, air ducts, and more.
Most homes use a furnace for heating. Furnaces are fueled by gas and electricity, mostly. Air conditioning units are installed for cooling, but heat pumps can also cool a home. The ductwork that connects to these units provides efficiency and air-quality to keep you comfortable in every part of your home.
To prevent HVAC issues, it’s important to get your units services regularly. An expert HVAC contractor can give you tips to maximize your HVAC system and catch small problems before they get out of hand. Remember, inspections are always less expensive than repairs.
