What can an HVAC specialist do for you?

It's 90 degrees outside and when you try to adjust your thermostat, you get a faint whine and click in return. Or maybe it's the dead of winter, you're out of firewood and your thermostat won't even click in response to you. If you're having issues with your HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system, you'll probably need to call a professional. He or she will be able to diagnose the exact cause of your problem and recommend a workable solution.

Heating and ventilation

It's not out of the ordinary to think that an HVAC repair and maintenance specialist only works on air conditioning units. After all, that's the thing that always seems to go on the fritz when you need it most! However, HVAC specialists also service different types of heating and ventilation systems.

The central heating system, the most common type of heating system found in private residences and office buildings, contains a boiler, furnace and a heat pump to heat your home's water supply. Any part of this system can malfunction, leading to flooding, limited performance (or overperformance) and high energy costs. Contacting an HVAC company can be beneficial not only for your home's temperature, but also for your wallet!

The ventilation system in your home is connected to both your central heating and central air systems. This system controls the air circulation in your home, replacing dirty or otherwise unwanted air with a fresh air. Whether you have natural or mechanical (also sometimes called "forced") ventilation, it is important to keep the system properly maintained, as this is your building's primary means of air quality control.

Air conditioning

Most homes and offices have a central air conditioning system that controls the building's heating and cooling capability. There are other types of systems, though, such as coil systems and standalone units; be sure to go over what type of system you have with your chosen HVAC company before agreeing to have any work done.

The central air conditioning system can feature extensive duct work, depending on the size of your property.

One thing to always remember about ducts is that if they are not properly maintained, dangerous pathogens (such as legionella) can begin to grow and cause serious health problems. If you suspect that you have bacterial growth in your system, contact a professional immediately!
