You may have heard the term HVAC used before but never understood what exactly that means or refers to. In this article we will answer what is HVAC and help give you a better understanding how it relates to the heating and cooling of your home.
To start off with HVAC stands for (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning). It’s a type of mechanical engineering and involves the repair and installation of units that control indoor conditions such as air quality, humidity, temperature, etc. Overall, HVAC systems are used to control the enviornment and keep the occupants comfortable inside a building or home. If this is done improperly, people within the building could experience health issues from the build up of mold or other harmful organisms.

Finding the correct size HVAC system for your house or building is an important step to getting the most efficiency and comfort. Having a qualified HVAC technician can make sure you don't get one that's too big or too small as the net result will be an inefficient system that will cost you more money in the future. For example, if a unit is too big it will not efficiently dehumidify the air, and if you have an oversized furnace it is likely to cause big swings in temperatures and create an uncomfortable environment to live in.

If you were to only determine the size of HVAC systems based only on the square footage of your home this would be greatly inaccurate. This is because it doesn't take into account the design of the home or energy efficiency of items that may have been installed such as weatherstripping, caulking, new windows, insulation, etc. If your looking to purchase or upgrade a HVAC system then it's important that you work with a qualified HVAC contractor.
