Air Conditioning and Heating Installation
Air conditioning and heating is also known as HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and air conditioning) It is a technology designed to keep the indoor environment as desired. This technology can also be found in motor vehicles. The main reasons for the HVAC installation is so at to meet the thermal and the indoor air quality as desirable and as acceptable as possible.
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. Scientifically, it is the process where the air indoors can be replaced or exchanged with the air form outdoor. HVAC has many applications. Examples of these applications include; controlling temperature, replenishing oxygen, removal of moisture, odors, heat, dust and any other unwanted air related aspects.
HVAC can add or remove the moisture inside the structures. It prevents the air from stagnating by keeping it flowing. Air from outside can be brought into the building or as an alternative air inside the building can be circulated. There are two methods of ventilation- mechanical/forced method and the natural method. In the forced method, the air circulation is controlled by an air handler. Maintaining indoor air quality is its main purpose. The building can be designed in a way that the air can flow from either inside or outside naturally.
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.
Heating process acts more or less the same like the cooling process. The only difference is that the air coming from the heater or from outside is much warmer than the air in the building. During the cold months or seasons of the year, that is when heating is done.
During installation, some of the aspects that you should watch out for include among others;
The installation cost. The cost should be within your means. 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 features of the system. Install the system that is easy to install, repair and maintain. Complicated systems are not desirable for repair and maintenance. Additional features such as the dust absorbers, humidifiers and air purifiers are an added advantage.
