What Does HVAC Stand For? And, How Does it Work?
The term HVAC is common. You might have heard it before. Most people have a general understanding of what it means. But do you know what we are talking about? This month, we are here to explain it to you. We will give you the ups and downs of the HVAC services that we offer and why it’s essential. Whether it’s for your home or business, ATN Mechanical is here to help. Let’s get into the basics.
HVAC services are broken into two categories: residential and commercial. However, in short, it’s the warming or cooling of space. In winter, you fire up the furnace to heat your home. In summer, you turn on the AC to cool it down. That’s HVAC. But HVAC services are more than that. You also must have proper ventilation. Combing all of these things is what we do best. There are many different systems to choose from, but they all begin with the same essentials. So, how does HVAC work?
Firstly, the air is brought into the home. From there, the air travel to your HVAC unit. This is where the air is filtered. Things like dirt, dust, and allergens are removed. Clean air is quality air. Now, it’s time to make the air more comfortable. Depending on the season, you will want to either cool the air down or heat it. Your furnace does the heating. Likewise, your AC unit keeps it cold. Once they have done their job, the air is sent into the home. Most homes use a central system to distribute the air into each room. This keeps your home comfortable all year long.
Now, it’s time to get into the HVAC services we offer at ATN.
We went over a bit of the basics of HVAC services, but as we mentioned, it’s about more than that. At ATN Mechanical, we offer a variety of services for your home and business.

In Canada, a working furnace is a must. It gets cold around here. And, you don’t want to be left without heat. So, when the temperatures drop, be sure you can count on your furnace to get you by. That’s where we come in. If you are looking to install a new furnace this year, we have high-end units that are sure to please. However, even if we didn’t install your furnace, we also provide over-the-top service on all makes and models. We want to make sure your furnace is running the best it can before the cold temperatures hit.
With proper care and maintenance, your furnace will last 15-20 years. So, that’s why we suggest scheduling service in the fall. That way, your unit will be clean and ready to go. During this visit, we can also address any concerns you might have. Of course, we will look for problems as well. It’s essential to fix the little things before they turn into big things. Remember, big problems mean big bills. Let’s avoid that! If you haven’t already, schedule your annual furnace checkup.
Next, we move on to cooling—another essential part of the HVAC system. Your AC unit removes the heat and humidity from your home during the warmer weather. This leaves you with a cool, comfortable environment. If you noticed your AC wasn’t working as well as it should be, now is the time to figure out a solution. When we come to service your furnace, ask us to take a look at your AC.
Did you know that if your unit is not sized correctly, it could be costing you money? AC in the summer accounts for a considerable part of your electrical bill. Sometimes, it’s almost half. However, if you do not have the proper size, it could be costing you even more. Plus, it won’t cool down your home efficiently. If your AC is working overtime, this might also lead to more problems and will need to be replaced sooner. Our staff at ATN Mechanical will work to find you the best fit. If you’re in the market for a new AC unit, don’t look any further. We are on your side!
With proper care, your AC unit can last you up to 20 years.
As a bonus, on top of our HVAC services, we also deal with refrigeration. Do you have a business that uses refrigeration equipment? We are here to keep things running smoothly. We have 60+ years of experience. That experience is what makes us an exceptional choice. We can service any unit or help make your requests happen.
