How Does a HVAC System Work?

A HVAC system is a very complex part of any home or place of business. That being said, this blog post in no way is meant to give instruction on advice on repair. For assistance in furnace repair in Sacramento or for a HVAC specialist contact us for a consultation. Now that is said, in case you were not sure, HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. Understanding how the system works together is best done by first understanding how each piece of the system works separately.

The heating system produces and pumps warm air around a building. Many times heating systems operate off gas, though they can be electric too. In most cases there is a gas fired furnace that produces hot air. Then the hot air is pumped through the house and out of vents. Depending on the system, there may be steam radiators in place too.

An air conditioning system creates cool air and pumps it throughout the building. Normally they have a compressor attached to a device that turns chemicals into cool gas, and then a fan helps pump the air through the house. The condenser compresses the cool gas before it is blown throughout the house.

The ventilation portion of the HVAC system can be either quite simple or quite complex. Most systems have a filter or two that all the air is blown through before it is distributed around the house, however there are homes or offices that have more complex filtration systems to produce cleaner, fresher air or bring in air from outdoors.

No matter what type of HVAC system you are dealing with, the components are all basically the same. Take time to learn about the parts that make up your system and you will better understand what to do if you face any problems in the future.
