What is HVAC?

HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. The objective of HVAC is to control the temperature of air along with control of moisture, filtration of air, etc.

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) is the technology of indoor environmental comfort. Its goal is to provide thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality. … Methods for ventilating a building may be divided into mechanical/forced and natural types.

The main parts of the HVAC system are a heating, a ventilation and an air-conditioning unit. Furthermore, modern systems include an air filtration and cleaning element as well.


What’s the difference between AC and HVAC?

AC stands for ‘air conditioning’, HVAC stands for ‘heating, ventilation and air conditioning.’

These two terms are often used interchangeably to describe any type of heating or cooling device.

To provide a comfortable working environment and maintain a building’s indoor temperature by exchanging ‘fresh air’ from outside the building through a heat exchanger system. The heat exchanger system typically transfers heat between the outgoing and incoming air to control the air quality inside.
