Five Common Parts You’ll Need for your HVAC Business

HVAC on a roof

The heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) industry is booming, with forecasts predicting compound annual growth rate reaching $3 billion by 2022, or nine per cent from 2016 to 2022. With climate change making summers hotter than ever, HVAC businesses will be busy servicing and repairing commercial and residential HVAC units. To stay ahead of the competition, HVAC servicing companies need to stock-up with spare parts. Here are some of the common parts that need replacing.

Buffer Tanks

A buffer tank is a vessel that can be filled with water. To keep running, the temperature of the water in the AC unit fluctuates. The buffer tanks help stabilize the temperature so the AC does not have to work so hard to maintain a constant temperature.

Air and Dirt Separators

Heating and cooling systems adjust the air temperature of a room, and expels unwanted heat outside. Because the AC unit has air passing through it, an air and dirt separator prevents particles of dirt from clogging up the unit and hindering the efficiency of the system.


The AC pump, or compressor, is a tool responsible for carrying condensation and heat through the piping of the HVAC system. This enables heated water or chilled water to be circulated or carried from one location to another.


Valves start and regulate the flow of liquids or gases in air conditioning systems. Without valves, HVAC systems run the risk of malfunction because the unregulated flow of fluids could overload the system.

Electric Motors

Considered the essential part of an HVAC system, electric motors are what power the blowers to move the cooled air out of the system and into the room.

Together, these five parts are important components for HVAC businesses and users. Whatever the weather may be, they make sure you’re prepared for it.
