HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning, and these systems are responsible for keeping homes warm and cool. The systems use fresh air from outdoors to ensure that a space has the perfect temperature and humidity. The systems also help maintain indoor air quality and filtration. They can be found in both single-family homes and large buildings, as well as on submarines.
HVAC systems send air through ducts and registers to heat, cool, and remove humidity. The cooled and heated air is then directed into the home. Some systems use ducts to move air around the home, while others direct the air directly into the room. A central system can use air from the outdoors to adjust temperature, humidity, and air quality, while a smaller one can direct air directly into the space.
HVAC systems may include ventilation systems, dehumidifiers, and air purifiers. These systems are controlled by a thermostat. These thermostats can be conventional or smart, and can trigger the appropriate HVAC components when the desired temperature is reached. Smart thermostats can also share diagnostic data with your HVAC contractor, which can help identify any problems with the system.
Using an HVAC system can save money on utility bills. In addition to energy savings, zoning can make a space more comfortable for occupants. It can also increase the building’s energy efficiency. Ductless systems, for example, can be a good choice if the building has no air ducts. These systems can be installed in small buildings and can save the environment while ensuring that indoor air quality is not compromised.
