Temperature control systems in today's homes and offices are more complex than ever. Everybody likes to stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer, but Americans are particularly good at regulating our indoor environments as closely as possible. We're so specific about our temperature and air control, in fact, that we even have a special name for people who handle this type of job: HVAC contractors.

What is HVAC?

The term HVAC stands for "heating, ventilation and air conditioning," and it is used for anything related to building temperature and airflow control and maintenance. HVAC contractors are the people who specialize in building and repairing heating, air conditioning and ventilation systems. Many of them are certified with different licenses that let you know what type of technologies they're trained to work with.

If you need to install a modern heating, ventilation or air conditioning system in your home or building, you'll almost certainly want to hire a trained HVAC contractor. If you're constructing a building for public use, you may even be required by law to consult with an HVAC contractor to make sure everything is up to code. The good thing about using an HVAC contractor is that they'll be able to give you an efficient, well-designed system that should save you as much money as possible on your energy bills.

Finding an HVAC contractor is usually as simple as looking on the Internet or in your local yellow pages. As with other types of contractors, it's always a good idea to get several outfits to bid on your job before you go and hire anyone. This will give you the opportunity to compare prices and to decide on which contractor you think is best suited for the job.
