Heating and Cooling (HVAC)
What is HVAC? You’ve probably heard of the term from different contractors, engineers, or perhaps colleagues and business partners; but you’re still wondering what the initials means. Well, HVAC (“H-V-A-C” or “H-VAK”) stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning—three closely related fundamental functions found in homes, offices, and other building structures.
The HVAC system is also known as climate control. This is because these three functions are essential in maintaining comfort in every dwelling.
The primary use of HVAC is to regulate room temperature, humidity, and air flow, ensuring that such elements remain within their acceptable ranges. Effective control of such factors minimizes health-related risks. A very humid atmosphere impairs the body’s ability to regulate body temperature as it prevents the evaporation of sweat. High humidity also decreases physical strength, which usually leads to fatigue. An unhealthy surrounding can also affect people’s thinking abilities. Hypothermia, heat stroke, and hyperpyrexia, among others, are some of the illnesses that may also occur.
