Whether you’re scheduling auto repair or air conditioner repair, it’s best to have an understanding of the system’s basic components. Luckily, there are plenty of helpful, customer service-orientated professionals to help you understand what’s going on with your HVAC system and why it needs repair.
Here’s a look at some HVAC terminology and major components of the system.
- HVAC: First things first—HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning and refers to your unit as a whole. Some homeowners may have independent air conditioner and heater systems, but this is uncommon.
- Condenser Coils and Heating Coils: These coils are an important part of your HVAC unit and require cleaning and maintenance periodically. Similar to a refrigerator, condenser coils create cool air by running air across coils filled with refrigerant or cool water, which is then circulated throughout your home. Similarly, heating coils use steam or hot water to heat air before circulation.
- Programmable Thermostat: A programmable thermostat allows homeowners to control the temperature on a schedule. For example, you can schedule your air conditioner to turn on at exactly 5pm every day and off at 10pm, offering comfort when you need it most and saving money when you’re not at home.
- Energy Star: If you’re shopping for an HVAC system, then be on the lookout for models with an Energy Star logo. This means it meets efficiency standards established by the government and will cost less to operate.
- Evaporator: This device absorbs or adds heat to a system, as the name indicates, by turning a liquid into gaseous form.
- Split System: A split system air conditioner has an outdoor unit and can be effective in homes where the temperature needs to be controlled in a concentrated area.
At Estes Heating & Air Conditioning , we make HVAC repair easy, especially with convenient and affordable maintenance programs. If you have questions about your HVAC system, then give us a call at 678-733-9791 to speak with a qualified technician.
If you have a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning unit, then there are many benefits to establishing a maintenance agreement plan with your local air conditioning repair company. Here are a few of the many benefits of consistent, quality HVAC maintenance .
- Eliminate Unexpected Expenses: When your HVAC is neglected, you increase the likelihood of unexpected expenses . Regular maintenance allows your repairman to catch and repair a minor problem before it leads to major air conditioner repair. With a maintenance agreement plan, you’ll know your HVAC is always maintained properly.
- Increase Comfort: When you set the temperature in your house, a properly maintained HVAC system will effortlessly maintain the desired comfort level. Inefficient air conditioning and heating systems can circulate harmful indoor air pollutants, which can lead to uncomfortable allergy-like symptoms and greatly affect asthma sufferers.
- Boost Efficiency: In addition to budgeting repairs and avoiding replacement, you’ll see regular savings on a monthly basis. Your HVAC system will cost less when it’s running efficiently and will never work harder than it should to heat or cool your home.
- Increase Longevity: Hiring professionals to maintain your heating and air conditioning regularly will make your HVAC system last much longer. Minor repairs will ultimately cost much less than complete replacement.
- Be Environmentally Friendly: An efficient HVAC system uses less electricity, making your carbon footprint much smaller. Consider a programmable thermostat to further increase your energy savings. This is an easy way to do your part to help out Mother Nature.

Heating and air conditioning inefficiency can be caused by a number of culprits. While HVAC maintenance is a great way to improve efficiency, ductwork must also be in good repair to get the most out of your heating and cooling system.
Check out this video to better understand exposed ductwork and how it can be fixed. Exposed ductwork allows heated or cooled air to escape, lessening your unit’s efficiency, decreasing your comfort, and increasing your energy bill. Sealing ducts can dramatically improve the results every time you switch on your HVAC system.
