What is HVAC?

When it comes to your home, ensuring that you are comfortable at all times is very important. To combat summer heat and winter cold, heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC) provide important benefits. Technically, anything from a window-unit to a central heating and cooling system falls under the heading of HVAC. However, it is most commonly associated with whole-home systems. These can provide immense amounts of comfort, and can also help reduce your utility bills if you have been relying on space heaters and window AC units So, this is what HVAC is, wait, there is more to it..

There are several components to an HVAC system. The largest component is the outdoor unit. There is also an indoor unit, where the cooling cools and blower are located. You will also find the filter located on the indoor unit, as well. Another main component of an HVAC system is the ductwork. These are the lines that bring the conditioned air to each room of your home. Usually, the ductwork will be either under the home or in the attic, keeping the lines out of sight. There are many parts to your ductwork: the main supply is the main trunk that carries the highest volume of air. Side branches allow each room in your home to be heated or cooled.

HVAC systems also come in different types. Increasingly, having a heat pump is the most popular option. However, there are also AC/furnace types that can be used. There are even hybrid gas furnace/heat pump systems that can be used to attain better savings on utility bills. Of course, not all HVAC systems are created equal. While all of them have to fall within federal and state guidelines in terms of performance, that does not mean that they are all of the same quality or the same efficiency.

If you are purchasing a new HVAC system or upgrading your old one, you can rest assure that Comfort King Energy will provide the highest quality and most efficient system to fit your needs.  For more information or for a free estimate, please call us at 203-515-8088 or complete our online request form.
