How HVAC Systems Work
The heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, HVAC, is one of the most important components of a home. All HVAC systems or climate control equipment have three basic components:
- A source of warm or cool air
- A system of dispensing the treated air to various rooms around the house
- A component used to regulate and control the system.
If your home uses central air conditioning, warm air flows through the same distribution system that cool air does and uses the same control systems. The main function of your central heating and cooling system is to produce warm or cool air in a central area and dispense it throughout your home. Many types of HVAC systems work as central systems. The typical components of a central system include:
- Air conditioner
- Fan coil
- Heat pump
- Oil or gas furnace
- Evaporator coil
- Thermostat and control
Heating System and Furnace Basics
Both air conditioning and heating work on the premise that heat always moves from a warmer object to a cooler one, just as liquids flow from a higher to a lower level. Most central systems are forced air systems, meaning that they use a system of ductwork to distribute air. On the other hand, radiant systems produce heat from sources such as boilers and distribute it through radiators situated throughout the home. Typical heating appliances include:
- Gas and Oil furnaces
- Heat Pumps
- Fan coils
Air Conditioning Parts
Whole-home A/C systems rely on a system of ductwork to distribute cool air throughout the house. When you turn on your air conditioner, the system uses electrical power to turn the gas in the coil to its liquid state. When warm air encounters the cooling coil, it cools down and spreads throughout your home using a system of ducts, or in the case of a room air conditioner, from the unit itself. Typical A/C products include:
- Air conditioners
- Fan coils
- Evaporator coils
- Heat pumps
Thermostats and HVAC System Controls
Thermostats and controls give you the ability to regulate and control your home’s temperature, air treatment, humidity, and scheduling, irrespective of the outdoor climate. In addition, advanced technology applied in modern controls give homeowners superior control and helps them save energy.
