What is HVAC and how does it work
In this article, it is important to note that HVAC, stands for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. At times it can be confused with another popular abbreviation such as high-voltage alternating current. (HVAC) it is a specific t4echnoloyg of controlling vehicular and indoor environments in order to maintain proper temperature.
It is a known fact that HVAC would be considered an important component of senior living homes, apartment buildings, single-family housing and medium size to large size business buildings. But in addition, HVAC is also very beneficial to motor vehicles some examples would be trains, cars, truck, ships airplanes, and submarines. It is also worthy to note that the purpose of HVAC is to maintain thermal comfort and decent indoor air quality.
What Makes Up The HVAC System
Knowing the parts of the HVAC system will be able to assist you in maintaining and ensuring that your system is working properly. In addition, this will help you to prevent and possible inconvenient breakdowns. Knowing how to keep your ac operating at top efficiency will help to keep your home comfortable. The main parts of the HVAC system are a heat exchanger, combustion changer, evaporator, thermostat, blower motor, and heat exchanger.
Heat Exchanger – is responsible for being able to absorb heat and can also help to warm cool air when the thermostat is activated.
Blow Motor – the blower motor will turn on when the heat exchanger reaches a certain temperature thus allowing the blower motor to power the fan which will help push the warm air in the ductwork system and into various rooms in the home in Oshawa
Combustion Chamber – the heating cycle will start when amounts of air and gas is pushed into the combustion chamber. It is important to note that oxygen is needed in order to create decent combustion. When this process occurs the pilot light will ignite both the mixture of oxygen and air and it will create a controlled fire
Thermostat – is a very important part of the system because it contains several sensors that ultimately help decide when the heater or air conditioner will turn off and on. The thermostat is wired to the system thru a special set of wires. Various HVAC systems do have one than one thermostat and it is important to note that each thermostat can be responsible for controlling different areas of the home. This helps ensures that the homeowner will be able to save energy by essentially only cooling or warming certain areas of y0ur home.
What is the difference between HVAC and AC
There are times when people are confused with the acronyms used such as HVAC and AC. It is important to note that the main difference between these terms is that AC which stands for air condition typically will only refer to the system that is responsible for cooling the air in the home. However, when discussing HVAC, this would refer to the system that is responsible for heating and possible cooling the home as well.
