1. What is HVAC?

HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning. It is an integral system that controls the temperature, humidity, and air quality in an indoor space.

2. Types of HVAC systems:

  • Central systems:
    • Forced air systems: Distribute heated or cooled air through a network of ducts.
    • Hydronic systems: Use hot or cold water to heat or cool the environment.
  • Ductless systems:
    • Mini splits: Are individual units that are installed in each room.
    • Multi split systems: One outdoor unit connects to multiple indoor units.
  • Heat pumps: Allow you to heat and cool the indoor space using a single unit.

3. Benefits of an HVAC system:

  • Year-round comfort: Allows you to enjoy a comfortable temperature in your home or business, regardless of the outdoor climate.
  • Energy efficiency: Modern HVAC systems are highly efficient and can help you save money on your energy bills.
  • Cleaner air: The air filters and purifiers integrated into HVAC systems help to remove air contaminants, such as dust, pollen, and bacteria.

4. Maintaining your HVAC system:

  • Duct cleaning: Air duct cleaning should be performed every 2-3 years by a professional.
  • Regular inspections: It is important to have your HVAC system inspected regularly to ensure proper operation.

5. Energy-saving tips:

  • Thermostat programming: Program your thermostat to adjust to your daily routine and the outdoor temperature.
  • Sealing doors and windows: Seal doors and windows to prevent hot or cold air leaks.
  • Efficient fan use: Use ceiling or table fans to improve air circulation in your home.
