Many struggles to act on crucial AC maintenance & repair moments because they don’t know what went wrong. As a result, the AC Repair cost and thus the whole HVAC cost start to pile up on you. To avoid this happening to you, you better know how a complete HVAC system is made and how each of its components come into play.


What Does A HVAC System Consist of?

To know what does an HVAC system consists of, you need to understand what HVAC stands for.

HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning.

By now, you must have guessed what makes an HVAC system. A Heating unit, A ventilation unit and an Air Conditioning unit. Let’s explore each of them individually.


1.       Heating Unit

Heating systems come in many forms. Two of the most common heating systems are boilers and furnaces.

These furnaces have used different sources and that’s why there are several different types of furnaces available these days. Most popular ones are gas furnaces. As the name suggests, these furnaces run with gas. Other common furnaces are oil furnaces, electric furnaces, etc.

Anyways, whatever heating system you want to install in your home, it will include a pipe system or and air duct system, which means additional air duct cleaning to handle along with AC maintenance and repair. The duct system is used when you have a forced-air system for heated air distribution. However, if you are using liquid mediums to pass the heat from one room or place to another, a duct system won’t work. In this case, you will need a pipe system to ensure liquid does not leak in your house.

When you are considering the liquid-based heating system, you will need a water source or water system. Using this connected water system, your rooms will be heated. By the way, the warm water for your bath can also be supplied from that same device which is used to supply the liquid to the radiators.


2.       Ventilation Unit

Ventilation is often misjudged and taken for granted because people don’t know how important the ventilation is for heating and air conditioning as well as humidity controlling.

Without proper ventilation, it is nearly impossible to control the humidity level to your preferred point. That’s why ventilation is a crucial part of a complete HVAC system.

This ventilation can be either natural or forced. The forced ventilation is used for mostly air cleaning purposes. Even though the application of natural ventilation is limited, it is still the most cost-efficient way.  


3.       Air Conditioning Unit

Air conditioning is just the reverse cycle of heating. Many heat pumps are capable of both heating and cooling. However, they are not the best option or the most efficient in cooling in any way.

However, HVAC companies are bringing more and more efficient air conditioning units as we. So, the option for a good central air conditioner is unlimited.


Why do people use Completer HVAC System in their home and office?

Now that you what makes a complete HVAC system, you might wonder why do we even need one in the first place.

Well, let me explain –


1.       Energy efficiency leading to a sustainable future

The main reason why people uses these complete HVAC systems in their houses and office is that they are a great energy saver. If we didn’t start using the HVAC system as a whole, we would have wasted a lot more energy on the individual parts of an HVAC system. Thankfully we understood the reason behind its need and adopted it into our houses.


2.       Cost efficiency

As the energy efficiency leave energy for future generations and make the future sustainable, it also leaves a few bucks in your wallet to save.


3.       Ease In Handling the AC Installation, AC Replacement and AC Repair Situations

Another prominent reason why people are into complete HVAC systems is the ease in handling AC Replacement, AC replacement and AC repair situation.

These systems are easy to set up and comparatively less inexpensive when it comes to HVAC installation, HVAC replacement and HVAC repair.  


4.       Easy troubleshooting

When you know about the individual components and how they work, troubleshooting for potential causes for mechanical failure becomes much easier, which is the first step towards handling the AC repairs.


5.       Easy upgradation & integration  

When you use a complete HVAC system like a Trane system, Carrier system, or a GoodMan system, you have the chance to make further adjustments and improvements to your already installed Carrier HVAC or Trane HVAC System.

As new products come in the market, you can adjust and use them on your heating and cooling system easily – this will make the gas furnaces, heat pumps and your air conditioning units more efficient.


6.       Easy control

If you were to install your heating system and your central ac unit separately, you would have needed two different interfaces to control the units. However, when you install a complete HVAC system, most HVAC companies will provide you with a single interface from where you can control, manage and access all the individual units of your HVAC system.


Bottom Line

By now, you should know what makes a Complete HVAC system and using this knowledge of each component and its responsibilities in heating and cooling the home and office, you can now handle the AC installation, AC replacement, AC repair and AC upgradation situations more efficiently.
