  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.

I'm not one to write reviews but I had to commend the service I received from Leone. My guy was prompt, professional and took care of business quickly and cleanly. It was a simple job for him but for me it meant everything because I had tried a fix myself and made things worse. He didn't criticize me but rather commended me for my efforts and showed me what I couldn't have known without some experience. I'm very please all around with the service and rate and will recommend them to anyone.

Terry an Adam did an excellent job. Very knowledgeable and was able to handle my tough job. My bathroom plumbing was so old and I needed special parts. They was able to track down the parts and get the job done in one day. They showed up when they said they would and worked!! I will definitely use their services for my next project. Terry went above and beyond giving me great advice. Everyone who answered the phone or called me was very professional and nice. And no one was pushy and trying to upsale to me.

I called Leone Plumbing after my 89-year-old father tried fixing an outdoor faucet himself. After going to several hardware stores to look for the parts, he realized there was no way he was going to find them because his house was built in 1958. I called Leone plumbing and talk to the owner, Andy. He sent someone out within a day to fix the leaking faucet. The new faucet is amazing and so easy to use. Leone Plumbing made my dad a happy person. Thanks for your expedited service and great prices!!!
