At Mr. Duct Heating & Cooling, we understand that the research surrounding the repair and replacement of your comfort heating and cooling system can be a little confusing. Below are some answers to the basic questions homeowners are asking!
What is an HVAC System? What Does It Do?
The heating and cooling system, sometimes referred to as the HVAC system is one of the most important parts of your home. HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning, the three main functions of a home comfort system. The system can control air temperature, humidity, and fresh air intake and maintain the quality of the air in your home.
What is a Central Heating & Cooling System?
A central heating and cooling system produces warm or cool air in one central area and distributes it throughout your home. There are many types of heating and cooling systems that work as central systems:
The first type is known as a traditional system and consists of an outdoor and indoor component. This usually refers to a heating and cooling system that has the furnace inside the home and the air condensing (A/C) unit on the outside.
The second type is known as a packaged product system, meaning that both the A/C and furnace unit have been unified into a single unit. Packaged units are usually found outside the home and are typically used in commercial/industrial complexes.
Most central heating and cooling systems are forced air systems, which means they send air through sheet metal ductwork for distribution. The ductwork can contain products that also filter and clean the air, thus improving indoor air quality.
Radiant systems, on the other hand, create heat from sources like boilers and deliver it through radiators throughout the home.
What are the typical parts of a Central Heating & Cooling System?
As mentioned earlier, your central HVAC system is composed of two major parts: your heating side and your cooling side. Each side can employ different parts that will require specialized attention in a unit clean, repair, or installation situation. Understanding how these parts contribute to regulation of temperature in your home is a very important step in ensuring year-round comfort:
In your heating system, you have can have gas/oil furnaces, heat pumps, fan coils, and/or boilers.
In your A/C system, you have can have air conditioners, heat pumps, evaporator coils, and/or fan coils.
Both systems air flow and heating capacity is determined by a programmable, non-programmable, and/or zoning thermostat.
