What Is HVAC?

Del-air HVAC

Throughout time, man has long battled the elements. The hottest days of summer and coldest nights of winter have been constant enemies, but today we have an effective and reliable way of fighting back: air conditioning and heating systems. The HVAC industry has sprung up around these systems and today every homeowner relies on them to get the job done.

What is HVAC?

HVAC is an acronym for “heating, ventilation, and air conditioning,” the three primary functions of internal climate control and air quality management. The HVAC industry covers everything from furnaces, boilers, heat pumps, and other heating solutions, swamp coolers, central air conditioners, split and ductless split systems, and other cooling devices, ductwork, air scrubbers, and much, much more.

An HVAC technician’s goal is to help you create the ideal environment in your home using these appliances. This means they’re capable of installing, inspecting, and repairing heating and air conditioning systems, performing maintenance, and even making educated, effective suggestions as to how to fix issues like high in-home humidity or poor air quality.

HVAC Certifications

Central heaters and air conditioners may be fairly simple in principle, but the systems themselves are extremely complex and require a substantial amount of knowledge and training to work on properly. The North American Technician Excellence organization (or NATE), offers this training and also has certification programs in order to distinguish those who have an exceptional level of training and workmanship so you the consumer can know who will provide you with quality work.

HVAC Technology

There are many different types of HVAC technology on the market today. While old-school boilers and furnaces are still commonly used for all sorts of applications, today modern air conditioners and heaters use specialized technology to heat and cool your home more effectively than ever before while also using even less electricity and energy than previous models. A qualified HVAC technician can help you with everything from hydronics case, hydronics oil, gas furnaces, air-to-air heat pumps, solar heating technology, and much more.
