Basics New HomeownersWelcome to homeownership! Your head is likely reeling with terms you have never heard or considered before like flush valves, aerators, and HVAC. What is HVAC, you ask? HVAC is an acronym that stands for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. It is the system that heats your home in the winter and cools your home in the summer. At Western Heating & Air, we are very familiar with HVAC systems and pride ourselves on our professional and knowledgeable HVAC services.

Basic Parts

So, what is HVAC exactly, and how does it work? In a nutshell, your HVAC system is a network of ducts and vents partnered with your thermostat, air conditioner and heater. Your air conditioner, of course, cools air in warm weather and your heater warms air in the cool weather. The air that these appliances put out is pushed through ventilation ducts that run throughout your home. These ducts are equipped with outlet vents to allow the cooled or warmed air to flow into the rooms of your home. Vents are likely spread evenly to maintain a comfortable temperature.

HVAC Maintenance

Heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems have many working parts. In order to ensure the proper functioning of your HVAC system, regular maintenance is critical. Important care tasks include:

Tyler and Carter were efficient, helpful, and courteous. They walked us through our new system and explained everything so we could use and maintain the system after they left. Great experience!

Brady and LT (and the entire Western Heating & Air Team) have been amazing through a less than ideal scenario. Our outdoor unit with our ductless system was having issues and completely went down on two occasions. Once they figured out the issue, they got a warranty claim in process and quickly got the new unit installed (Brady and LT are true professionals and pros at what they do). Our family feels in good hands with Western Heating and Air, and appreciate all the compassion and hard work to help us through this less than ideal scenario with the problems we had with the outdoor unit. THANK YOU!
