HVAC stands for heating ventilation and air conditioning. Besides the term HVAC, there are a lot of other components that go into this system. Now, let’s break those down.

In more technical terms, an HVAC system is the technology equipment and process that goes into heating, cooling, and ventilating your home. This system works by moving air, specifically moving warm air elsewhere. This could be moving warm air into a home or out of a home. To heat your home an HVAC generates heat through electrical energy through gas, propane, or oil.

To cool your home, the system absorbs the heat from within your home and moves it to the outdoor unit. The key to this is the refrigerant in the cooling system. You’re probably wondering how this air is moved throughout your home. The heating and air conditioning are moved through ductwork.
