HVAC and AC are two terms that are regularly heard of but few actually know the difference between the two. While they are similar in some aspects and are often used interchangeably, HVAC and AC are two separate things. HVAC encompasses heating, ventilation, and air conditioning while AC stands for just the air conditioning portion.
Air conditioners have come a long way from their meager beginnings of utilizing blocks of ice to complicated units attached to programmable thermostats. The modern air conditioning system was actually invented in 1902 by a young engineer named Willis Carrier who was looking for a way to control the humidity level of a printing plant that he worked in. While it wasn’t originally designed for human comfort, ACs have become an important part of most American’s daily lives.
While we may not hear much about heating here in Boca Raton, Florida, it is still necessary to help us through those few cold days each winter. Ventilation is needed in houses in order to remove stale indoor air and moisture trapped inside. Ventilation also provides fresh air from outside to help indoor air quality inside. Keeping up with air duct cleaning and replacement is key to efficient ventilation in the home.
While you may know what air conditioning is, besides a lifesaver on hot days, many do not know that there are different types or options to choosing an air conditioner.
With the many different types of air conditioners and HVAC systems out, it can be more than a little frustrating trying to figure out which one is best for your specific situation. Thankfully, the HVAC experts at Palm Air AC are here to help you. Contact Palm Air AC, who proudly serve the Boca Raton area, as well as Broward and Palm Beach counties.
Steve Zonenstein came out this afternoon for a 6 month service call. He was fantastic! He explained everything he was doing and showed me how to deal with a clogged drain, which can be a problem at times. He was thorough, knowledgeable, professional and extremely pleasant. Very happy with the service call. Thank you, Palm Air.
