Central Heating Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) – What are They?

A system that combines heating, air conditioning and ventilation can be referred to as a HVAC system, or more simply as ‘climate control’. These systems are used for home air conditioning but can also be used in industrial and office buildings, to provide both heating and air conditioning more efficiently than traditional boiler and air conditioning units used alone. Not only do they control air temperature, but they also ensure optimum air cleanliness inside the building. HVAC’s take many forms, shapes and sizes, and may include any combination of a boiler, an air conditioning unit and ducts or moisture vents working together to form a system. This system can be better explained in terms of its 3 areas.

The HVAC systems include a component for heating the property, this is done in part by the unit itself but also through the central heating system. Water will be pumped through the radiators whilst the HVAC system simultaneously distributes hot air to the rooms of the building. The control console on the HVAC can ensure certain rooms are heated to certain temperatures, therefore you do not waste energy heating empty spaces in your building.

The ventilation part of the HVAC system guarantees there is a steady flow of fresh air circulating the building. The control system vents air out of the building and pulls in cleaner air from outside, improving oxygen levels. The filtration system also ensures fumes, moisture or harmful particles are filtered out. This ensures the indoor environment is both safe and comfortable for whoever is living or working in it.

Finally, the air conditioning aspect not only cools the building down to make the working temperature more bearable, but it also controls humidity which can protect the contents of your space.

Air-Conditioning

 The Benefits Over Conventional Home Air Conditioning Units

There are numerous benefits of a HVAC system. They offer improved results in comparison to a singular home air conditioning unit as they have greater versatility. Furthermore, they are energy efficient as they also use electricity to heat rooms instead of relying solely on conventional boiler systems which burn gas made from precious fossil fuels to generate heat.

On top of that, increased energy efficiency often goes hand in hand with decreased energy bills. The HVAC system offers much more flexibility as to how and when it is used, which means you can save money by avoiding heating empty and unused rooms. The system can also be conveniently controlled from your PC, Mac or Mobile phone. Although the initial cost of installing a HVAC system can be high, you will be able to see a return on investment and having an air conditioning installer fit a HVAC unit can sometimes even boost the value of the house.
