If you are looking for an eco-friendly system that not only heats and cools your home or business but also improves the air quality at the same time, then HVAC may be the perfect option for you.
HVAC is an acronym that stands for “Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning”.
At its core, HVAC takes fresh air from outside a building, brings it inside, heats it up or cools it down depending on the occupant’s requirements, and then sends clean air around the building through a series of ducts.
Although it is a system that has been around for a while, it is becoming increasingly popular in homes as well as commercial buildings as the benefits of this system become more evident.
The main benefit of an HVAC system is that it does more than merely warming or cooling a building.
It is designed to provide controlled changes in temperature while simultaneously moving clean air around the building, improving the inside air quality.
In the past, buildings were constructed with plenty of points for ventilation. However, these days buildings are specifically designed to minimise any movement of air, in or out of a building.
Although this does make a space far more energy efficient (which is clearly a positive outcome), it also reduces the movement of air around a building.
This can have a detrimental effect on the home or workspace.
Stagnant air in a building encourages not only indoor moisture retention and excess humidity but also causes harmful viruses or allergens to stick around for longer and cause more health issues for those inside the building.
HVAC takes filtered outdoor air and continuously moves it around a building to prevent these issues, replacing the indoor air with clean, fresh air.
