HVAC is a term that people use, often not knowing exactly what it stands for. This article will help you to understand it better. Also addressed is the future of HVAC specialists and why this occupation will remain in demand for decades to come.

What Is HVAC?

HVAC stands for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. Your furnace and air conditioner are the main equipment in your home’s HVAC system. The ducts in your attic or crawlspace are also part of the system.

HVAC systems move air between the outdoors and your house. The air is heated or cooled depending on your thermostat settings. There is a filter that cleans the air and traps allergens, dust, and other undesirable contaminants. Homes nowadays are more tightly sealed than in the past, so your HVAC system’s ability to ventilate your house is critical.
