  You might have encountered the term HVAC many times and it may sound familiar to you. Most likely, the only thing that you know about the HVAC system is it provides cooling and heating on a home or building. What if there is more to it than that? In this article, take a moment to learn more about your HVAC system other than the cooling and heating it provides.

HVAC System: What is it and what does it stand for?

Basically, HVAC stands for “heating, ventilation, air condition.” HVAC is a generic term that refers to the technology used for moving air between the outside and inside your residence or place of work. The HVAC system keeps the summer-time cool and fresh and your winter-time warm. Aside from the comfort, it brings during summer and winter, the system is also responsible for filtering the air and minimize indoor humidity.

How does an HVAC System Work?

The HVAC system has four main elements that work together.

  1. The Furnace. It is a heating unit used to heat an entire building. Furnaces primarily run on oil or natural gas, and even electricity. It heats the air to the right temperature through a heat exchanger. This unit is usually installed indoor.
  2. The Thermostat. It is a device that controls the indoor temperature. This device also automatically adjusts your heating or cooling system to maintain the desired level. The thermostat is considered the “brain” of the HVAC system.
  3. Airconditioning (AC) Unit. The unit has a refrigerant that cools the air and it is powered by electricity. The AC unit has a mechanism to send out hot air that comes through it, while cool air is blown in. It is installed usually outside of the premises.
  4. Ductwork. This is a conduit or passages used in the HVAC system to deliver hot and cool air in a home or building. It also delivers ventilation air as part of the air supply. It ensures acceptable indoor air quality and thermal comfort at the same time. You can find it behind walls or above the ceiling.

HVAC Basics

The HVAC system is more than just heating and cooling your home or workplace. It delivers comfort for everyone by improving indoor air quality. The system uses mechanical ventilation to move air in and out. The work begins in the air handling unit once the air is brought in. The air then goes through the filters removing dust, dirt, and other particles. After this process, the air is either sent to be heated or cooled with excess humidity removed. Once the air achieves a comfortable temperature, it is directed clean and fresh into your home or workplace.

Fantastic experience with Andy. When we were flooded out, though he was very busy already, he responded immediately and took the time to ask the right questions and diagnose the issue. He offered his immediate help and we are back up and running! Very professional and understanding. This will be the first place I call from now on for any work needed.

I called Leone because I had sewer water in my basement. Two guys came to my house and spent a couple hours snaking my sewer drain, but unfortunately couldn't clear it. The next step was to install a lot line clean out (which was an entirely new concept for me). Andy took time to explain it and answer my questions, and we decided to go ahead with this project. Andy handled getting the utility lines staked, acquired necessary work permits, coordinated the inspection with the City, and when the job was done he communicated with the County to ensure they would come back to my house to unclog the sewer. The crew that handled the work (digging up my yard and installing the lateral pipe) showed up when they said they would and worked with great care and professionalism to ensure the job was done right and within the timeframe that was explained to me. They took pictures of everything and kept me informed throughout the process. The County did show up later that afternoon, as expected, and cleared the stoppage.

We called Leone plumbing because we had a water leak and zero clue where it was coming from. Our ceilings were full of water and floors ruined!! They came out same day found the leak and repaired it. After all the damage from the water we needed ALOT of work done. New floors up stairs and down stairs the ceiling replaced and new counter tops! Lucky us they are a one stop shop! The next day they had someone come out and do and estimate and had supplies ordered in that week!! We had family from out of state staying with us so our house was a bit cramped and Leone plumbing was more than accommodating when it came to what time they could start and what rooms to start. Very respectful workers and very friendly! Definitely something you do not see that often anymore in that trade!! Very happy with their work!!!
