Nope, it’s not French…oui, oui. Nor is it Spanish… senor. The language of HVAC companies in Indianapolis just isn’t romantic. We don’t speak like Italians who can romance an alligator out of an alley.
It’s true. Homeowners don’t always love us when we show up at their door because there’s probably a problem with their furnace or AC unit. Our guys look at it and probably start to sound a little Russian or German—harsh, direct and confusing.
As a matter of fact, HVAC talk probably turns your brain to toast. Thoughts run through the brain—is this guy talking crazy? What the heck is an inducer fan assembly? Who knew my furnace was so complicated?
So let’s break it down. Here are some common terms we use just so you know we’re not making it up as we go. And if you hear something you don’t understand—ask our guys. They’ll break it down. You can also call me. I’ve been in this business since I was just a pup riding around town with my dad, co-founder of Broad Ripple Heating and Air Conditioning. I joke HVAC is my blood type (The older I get the more I think—that may not be a joke.).
Here goes… (if you know what these mean, I’ve got a job for you!)
