What is HVAC?

HVAC Information For Home Owners


HVAC, or heating, ventilating, and air conditioning, is a term that deals with the climate
control of a structure. In some regions of the world, HVAC will also be used to refer to
electrical issues and plumbing. The heat, ventilation, and air conditioning of a structure are all
interconnected. The goal of HVAC is to rovide an architectural structure with a high
!ualit" of indoor air, as well as e#cellent thermal roerties and cometitive installation
costs. A system that is built with HVAC properties can also reduce the amount of infiltration that
is present in a structure. In most modern buildings, either one or multiple HVAC systems will be
used. If the building is fairly small, the construction company will generally select specific
HVAC systems that can be efficiently used with it.
For a building that is large, the construction company may need to use engineers who wor in the
building services field. !ngineers who speciali"e in a number of fields may be used for these
tass, and they may be responsible for dealing with mechanical or structural issues. The
engineers will play an important role in the design of the HVAC system. #hen an HVAC system
is installed, it is mandatory for construction companies and engineers to mae sure they are
following the building codes, and they must also have the proper permits. There are a number of
units that are comprised within HVAC. $ome of them are fan coil units, air handling units, and
maeup air units. The fan coil unit is a small structure that acts as a blower, and it will commonly
be used in hotels.
