What Does HVAC Mean?

Looking after your heating, air conditioning and indoor air quality needs.

hvac service Canton, MA Maybe you’ve seen the acronym HVAC on service vans or billboards for home companies throughout the South Shore. Perhaps it was a term that your home inspector used when you bought your house. What does HVAC stand for, and what does it mean to be a full-service HVAC services provider?

At Frank Lamparelli, we’re proud to provide HVAC services to homes and businesses in Canton and elsewhere on Massachusetts’ South Shore. Let us tell you what this means for your home.

The Meaning of HVAC

The term HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. It refers to all the equipment in a building that regulates cooled and heated air. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, 52% of the average American home’s energy use goes to heating and cooling systems. The HVAC technicians at Frank Lamparelli have extensive experience and training in handling a range of heating, air conditioning, and indoor air quality systems.

Heating Solutions for MA Homes

Today, you can keep your home warm in colder months with any number of HVAC systems. We can install and service the following types of heating equipment:

  • Boilers, which use steam of hot water to distribute heat via radiators, baseboards and radiant floor systems.
  • Furnaces, which heat air and blow it through ductwork to vents in your home.
  • Heat pump systems, which warm your living spaces by transferring heat between the outdoor air and your home.

Not only do we install and service this equipment, but we also deliver the premium heating oil and propane that keep many of these systems running.

Air Conditioning Solutions for MA Households

At Frank Lamparelli, we want to be a one-stop shop for your year-round comfort. No matter the age or dimensions of your home or the budget you’re working with, we can find HVAC equipment to fit it.

A central A/C system will typically use the same ductwork as your forced air heating. Today’s central A/C systems are more energy efficient than ever before. If your home doesn’t have ductwork — as is often the case with houses with boilers — you can opt for a ductless mini-split system. These systems have indoor air handling units and an outdoor condenser, which connect via thin pipes in your wall. They offer zoned cooling, so you can keep different rooms at different temperatures and save money in the process!

Indoor Air Quality and Your HVAC System

The ventilation infrastructure of your home can significantly impact your indoor air quality (IAQ). Forced air heating and cooling equipment (i.e., furnaces and central A/C) can circulate dust, mold, pollen, viruses and other airborne impurities through your ducts. The result can be worse allergies, more virus illnesses, dry skin, itchy eyes and additional cleaning.

Frank Lamparelli can help improve your IAQ by providing regular HVAC maintenance. A well-maintained heating and cooling system will be cleaner, work more efficiently and break down less often.

We also sell and install IAQ equipment from Carrier that can improve the air your family breathes.
