Denver, CO HVAC Contractor
(H) Heating, (V) ventilation, (A) Air (C) Conditioning in Denver: We are constantly asked what HVAC means. Here is an explanation that will clear up any confusion, we want you understand exactly what HVAC means and how they save you money every year in Denver.
HVAC systems allow you to control the atmosphere in your home with one system. You’ll have central air in the summer as well as central forced air to heat your home in the winter, and ventilation systems to control the moisture and circulate air in your home. They’re all connected to one set of vents and ducts to make the control of the atmospheres in your home’s rooms.
Air Conditioning: Refrigerant is forced through the compressor outside your home using many thin pipes which compresses the Freon into a liquid just like in an aerosol can. The gas then becomes a liquid and is pushed through thin pipes or coils to an expansion valve that returns the liquid Freon to a gaseous state. The process or loss of energy from heat as it expands to a gas again makes the Freon cold and you get the cold air blown into your house through the ducts around your home in the ceilings and walls.
The “V” stands for “ventilation” and that means you control the circulation; where the air goes, and we use forced air or ventilation which uses fans to move the air in your home around, and (optional) humidifiers and dehumidifiers to increase or decrease moisture in your home.
Heating: HVAC or central heating systems use a primary appliance like a furnace, boiler, or heat pump located in a basement or garage that pumps heat through air ducts or hot water or steam through pipes to room radiators where you can use a thermostat to turn the heating or cooling up or down or off, and you can control them manually or automatically.
