Is HVAC same as a furnace?
An HVAC system is any unit installed in your home that provides it with heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.

In addition, your HVAC system will also include air ducts, vents, your thermostat, and other units that allow you to monitor your living environment.

With that being said, your home’s HVAC system provides you with the ability to customize your indoor environment at any time, and it will really depend on your personal preferences for comfort.
