If you live in the Austin area, you know the importance of good air conditioning. When your system isn’t working, your home or office will quickly get uncomfortable in the summer heat. You will want expert technicians like those at Totally Cool Heating & Air to come and fix the problem. What you may not know is that our technicians can do much more than fix air conditioners.

The Meaning of HVAC

Someone who is trained to handle HVAC problems works with air conditioning equipment but also specializes in other aspects of climate control. The “H” in HVAC stands for “heating.” An HVAC technician is the one to call when a furnace is operating poorly in the colder season. Often, your heating system and air conditioning system will use the same ductwork and vents to control the temperature of your space.

The “V” in HVAC stands for “ventilation.” Ventilation has become much more important as homes and buildings have grown more energy-efficient. While less drafty homes are helpful in lowering your energy bills, they can make it difficult for fresh air to get in and stale air to get out. Ventilation systems make sure that there is constant air exchange. Modern systems can exchange the heat of the outgoing air with the incoming fresh air without wasting electricity.

Addressing Your Total Home Comfort

While someone who specializes in heating or air conditioning may be able to fix faulty equipment, an HVAC technician can look for the best ways to keep your home comfortable throughout the year. They will design and maintain a system that can address the temperature, humidity and air quality in your home or office. Basically, an HVAC technician can handle all your climate-control needs.
