HVAC Basics: What is HVAC?

When you are at home, you are actively or passively aware of your comfort. If you are too cool or too warm, you adjust the thermostat to get your home just the right temperature. When your cooling and heating systems aren’t working, you know that you need to call an HVAC contractor. However, you may be wondering exactly what is HVAC?

HVAC (pronounced ach-vak or pronouncing each letter, “H-V-A-C”) is an acronym for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) defines an HVAC system as, “The equipment, distribution systems, and terminals that provide, either collectively or individually, the processes of heating, ventilating, or air conditioning to a building or portion of a building.”

Simply put, your HVAC system is any appliance, machine and component in your home that controls or contributes to keeping you comfortable. Here are the basics.
