HVAC –What is it and how does it work?

The primary function of the HVAC system in your home – or the heating, ventilation and air condition system – is to provide thermal comfort (control the temperature) and produce acceptable indoor air quality (by controlling humidity and filtering the air). But, how does it work?

Understanding the basic functions of an HVAC system and how it works is important to maintaining your current system in good condition. Whether you are looking for a completely new system or hoping to maintain or repair your current unit, we at Corfu Energy Experts are here to help, and we want you to understand how your system works.

Here are the three main functions of your HVAC system and how they work.

The heating function of your HVAC system does just that – it heats your home. In most cases, this is done via a central heating system. The surrounding air enters the unit and is warmed by a heat pump furnace system. With a heat pump or warm air system, heat is distributed through a system of air ducts in the home.

The ventilation function of your HVAC system works to maintain the highest possible air quality inside your home. High air quality is achieved by ventilating air through a series of ducts and circulating the air back into the home. The air can be exchanged with outdoor air and/or circulated from air within the building. Your system will work on either forced/mechanical ventilation system or a natural ventilation system. Forced (mechanical) systems use an air handler to remove humidity and impurities from the air. Natural systems use the natural flow of the air pressure inside a room (moving from warm to cold or inside to outside) to ventilate the air.

Air Conditioning
  Air conditioning systems are often misunderstood, as many believe they “cool” the air inside your home. In reality, the air conditioning function of your HVAC system works by removing humidity from the air, and then using a refrigeration system to remove heat from the air. This removal of moisture and heat creates a “cooling” effect. Air conditioning systems come in many different varieties, including a split air system (with indoor and outdoor parts and a series of ducts throughout your home) or a ductless system (which has indoor and outdoor parts, but no ducts throughout the home).

It may seem like a complicated system, but the basic three functions of your HVAC system are easy to understand when you break it down. The system works by drawing in outside air or circulating inside air, then ventilating that air, heating it (or removing heat and moisture from it) and then distributing that air back into the house.

There are many types of HVAC systems, and  Corfu Energy Experts are here to answer any questions you may have about them.

The benefits of HVAC

Do your employees frequently complain about workplace temperatures? Are you worried about the effects of heat or cold on vital business equipment and stock? Would you like your home to be heated and cooled more efficiently – reducing the cost to you? No matter what results you hope to achieve with heating, ventilation and cooling (HVAC) systems, the specialists at Corfu Energy Experts can make it happen for you.

Air conditioning is about much more than simply keeping cool. HVAC systems can manage the temperature in your home or work building to the nearest degree, keeping everything just as warm or as cool as it needs to be. Using a combined heating and cooling system can save considerable costs on HVAC installation, servicing and maintenance. An efficient and well-designed system will also drive down your energy bills in the long term.

  Whether you are upgrading an existing HVAC system or requesting a first-time installation, you can be sure that  our professional engineers will work closely with you to meet all of your needs and requirements. If you have any concerns or questions, our experts are on hand with the answers.

  Air Conditioning Installation For Any Premises

  When having air conditioning installed, you want to know that the system will be placed in the right spot and will effectively cool (or heat) your property consistently and reliably.  Having a system designed for your needs can combat a number of installation issues and give you the best result.

  An air conditioning system which has been placed incorrectly may leave some areas of your building not feeling the benefit. However, if it is running you will still be paying for it. Some buildings require a more sensitive approach to temperature control, with different temperatures in each area as required. Again, these complex HVAC systems should be carefully placed to ensure maximum output at minimum cost, and to keep the unit working as it should.
