Like most people you’ve seen and heard this acronym used several times and yet had no idea what those letters stood for. Let us break it down for you: Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. HVAC refers to your heating and cooling system. When it breaks down, you get very uncomfortable and your health becomes at risk. Your HVAC system should control the temperature, supply fresh air to your environment, remove contaminates and dust from the air and be energy efficient. In essence, your heating system should keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Temperature Control and Comfort Levels
Everyone has their own internal temperature. Some people are very sensitive to cold, others are extremely sensitive to heat. How do you manage the temperature of your environment with so many people to please? A technologically advanced heating system, installed by Andover HVAC, Heating and Cooling will do that for you.

When you Should Replace your System
A good system is environmentally efficient, unobtrusive, whisper quiet and economical. You know it’s time to replace your heater when you turn on the hot water and get cold. Your heater is at the end of its days when you realize that the hot water doesn’t last as long for your morning shower.

Listen to your tank and if you notice unusual noises, clanking, banging and loud hissing, it’s time to replace your tank.
