Heat, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) is the science of vehicular and indoor environmental comfort. Its purpose is to provide acceptable indoor air quality and thermal comfort for a healthy indoor environment. An HVAC system includes pumps, fans, filters, controllers, load management devices, and other components that are collectively responsible for the control of temperature and humidity. As most heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems are linked to water and oil ducts, combustion engines, heat exchanges, heat pumps, refrigeration units, combustion turbines, and combustion chambers, HVAC system components can become trapped in the ductwork or evaporator coil.

This causes undue strain on cooling and heating elements and affects HVAC systems’ effectiveness and efficiency. When this condition exists, HVAC professionals are trained to work in the field to resolve these problems. With an HVAC system, the temperature inside the buildings can remain steady even during extreme weather conditions such as snow, rain, hurricanes, and blizzards, because HVAC systems’ ability to regulate temperatures also depend on the quality of the ductwork. If HVAC system ducts are not maintained properly, heating and cooling equipment components can wear out quickly, resulting in expensive maintenance expenses.
In order for HVAC systems to work effectively, ductwork must be properly sealed with proper insulation. Otherwise, heat and cold will accumulate and travel upward, instead of circulating around the space. When heating and cooling components wear out, they cannot efficiently work and may be replaced. Air-conditioning systems rely on the operation of blowers, which are often dirty or clogged with dust particles. It is important that these are cleaned regularly to ensure indoor air is free of dust and contaminants, and that heating and ventilation fixtures are properly vented to the outside.
