Although you can only see a few parts of your HVAC system, it is made up of a number of parts that make a complex system. HVAC specialists are very familiar with all of these parts, but we thought it’d be helpful to share some information about them with you.

The parts that you’re probably familiar with are: your thermostat, air conditioning unit, furnace, and vents. Your air condensing unit is typically located somewhere outside of your home, and it looks to help keep your home cool. Your furnace is likely located inside, in somewhere like your basement, garage, or a supply closet; your furnace helps to keep your home warm. You have at least 1 thermostat in your home, and possibly more, and this is the piece that you’re probably most familiar with as you use it frequently to adjust the temperature in your home. 

There are 2 types of vents in your home: return vents and supply vents. Supply vents are the smaller vents that you have throughout your home, and this is where the air, cool or warm, is brought into your home. Return vents are the larger vents in your home, and you probably only have 1-4 of them, depending on the size of your home; these vents take the air from the room and filter it back into your HVAC system.

Your HVAC system also has a number of parts that you can’t see because they’re in your walls, ceiling, and crawlspaces. Your ductwork is a major part of your HVAC system; it carries the air to the vents throughout your home. Your furnace has a number of key components including the heat exchanger and evaporator coil. Your home’s condensing unit has some important parts too like refrigerant lines. 

All in all, your HVAC system is a complex unit made of many parts, and it takes an expert’s touch to make sure that each part is working as it should. Give us a call today at North Carolina Heating & Air Conditioning in Greenville, NC for all of your HVAC needs.
