Have you ever been confused when listening to an air conditioner repairman? You’re not alone! Some people are even uneasy when it comes to having to deal with an air conditioning issue because they feel incompetent and fear they will be taken advantage of by their repairman. Admittedly, there is a lot of jargon used in the world of heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), but that’s no reason a repairman should keep their customer in the dark.
Some HVAC companies may use specific terminology as a way to appear more experienced. Unfortunately, others may simply use it as a way to complicate their analysis and recommendation as a way to take advantage of unsuspecting customers. At Wolff Mechanical, we believe our skilled professionals should not only be dedicated to offering the best HVAC services valley-wide, but are also a resource to provide our customers with valuable understanding so they can make educated decisions.
As a service to our customers and for the general consumer, we have compiled a list of typical jargon on our website which we felt were important for all HVAC consumers to understand. Most of these are specific to air conditioning, but some overlap with heating lingo, so as to help the air conditioning consumer understand how some of these phrases cross over in the world of HVAC in general. Please use this page as a way to educate yourself and others in making more informed decisions when it comes to purchasing, repairing and maintaining the most efficient AC system for as long as possible.
