Understanding Air Conditioning
Another name for the air conditioning and heating is HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and air conditioning). To maintain the indoor air quality, this technology is applied. We can also find this technology in vehicles. To meet the indoor air qualities, one can opt to install the HVAC system.
Places that this technology has been adopted include residential buildings, factories, animal habitats vehicles and commercial buildings such as the hotels. This technology is useful in marines and submarines applications. It can be defined scientifically as the process of replenishing or exchanging indoor air with the outdoor air. HVAC has many applications. Some of these include; controlling temperature, replenishing oxygen, removal of moisture, odors, heat, dust and any other unwanted air related aspects.
HVAC can also be applied for the humidification or dehumidification of the air in the building. It keeps the inside air flowing and prevents stagnation of air in the process. This can be applied in buildings to bring the air from outside or circulate the air within the same building. Ventilation methods can be subdivided into two- mechanical/forced method and the natural method. In the forced method, the air circulation is controlled by an air handler. Its main purpose is to provide adequate indoor air quality. The natural methods entail designing the building in such a way that, the air will be flowing through the vents and thus allow circulation in the building.
For the air conditioning, the building is kept in such a way that, the air inside is at a desired temperature and humidity. It is achieved by drawing the air from outside which is cooler, and drawing out the air from the room, cooling the building in the process.
The working mechanism of the heating process is close to that of the cooling process. The difference is in the air characteristics. Heating is done during the cold months or the cold seasons of the year.
Considerations that should be made during the installation of HVAC include ;
The cost incurred during installation. Go for the cost that is suitable for you. Some of the systems are usually too sophisticated and expensive while others are just simple and cheap, with less features of course. There are HVAC appliances designed for everyone depending on the money matters.
The system features. The system should be easy to install, repair and maintain. Some system contain complicated features such that even finding the spare parts for the same is a problem. You should check out the additional features the system comes with such as dust absorbers, humidifiers and maybe air purifiers.
