Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems can be found in virtually all residential and commercial buildings. These systems provide a range of essential functions for controlling internal building temperature, humidity, air quality, and other related conditions. HVAC systems bring in air from outside your home and filter it for common airborne irritants such as smoke, odors, dust, and bacteria, while also altering its temperature and humidity.
Basics of an HVAC System
Ventilation is naturally and mechanically present in your home or business. Natural ventilation occurs as air passes through windows, doors, vents, and other openings. Mechanical ventilation gets handled by the HVAC system. Modern buildings have tighter seals than older structures, making mechanical ventilation an important component.
Once the air gets drawn in from outside, it must undergo various heating, cooling, and/or filtration processes to adapt it to the preset internal conditions of a facility. From there, the system blows the air through the building’s ducts and registers to bring internal spaces those predetermined temperature and humidity levels.
HVAC systems typically feature three primary interrelated functions. These functions are made up of nine individual parts:
- Air return
- Exhaust outlets
- Electrical elements
- Outdoor unit
