An HVAC system is not as hard to understand as one might think and it can actually be understood by the common person.
- The air conditioner part of an HVAC system is outside of the home and looks like a large box.
The air conditioner works by taking the warm air around it and then cooling it with coolant and electricity. Then the air conditioner blows the air through the air vents that are installed throughout the house. The air vents are the passageway for both the air from the air conditioner and from the furnace. The furnace works similarly to the air conditioning in that it has a system inside of it that transforms cold air into heat. Instead of being outside like the air conditioner, the heater will have its place in the basement or attic. The furnace typically will run on gas or oil and will, like the air conditioner, spread the warm air through the house using the installed air ducts. The thermostat is what controls both the air conditioning and the furnace. It is the brain of the HVAC system and you get to control the thermostat with the thermometer. To get an HVAC system in your home is as simple as a phone call. You only need to contact the HVAC company and schedule a time to have your air ducts, air conditioner, and furnace installed. Then the HVAC technician will be at your home installing the system for you. HVAC provides optimal comfort in your home and is definitely an investment that you will not regret taking.
