Air conditioning and heating are commonly referred to as HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and air conditioning). It is a technology designed to keep the indoor environment as desired. We can also find this technology in vehicles. One can install the HVAC so that he or she can meet the indoor air quality that he or she desires.
This technology has been widely used in almost all the buildings that require the enhancement of the indoor air quality. Ships, marines, and submarines are also places where it has been applied. Scientifically, it is described as that process where the indoor air is exchanged and replaced with the outdoor air. HVAC can be applied for many reasons. Some of these include; controlling temperature, replenishing oxygen, removal of moisture, odors, heat, dust and any other unwanted air related aspects.
In some other instances, the HVAC removes or adds moisture inside the structures. It prevents the air from stagnating by keeping it flowing. 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. Forced method is where the air is controlled using a mechanical device commonly known as the air handler. Its main purpose is to provide adequate indoor air quality. In the natural method, the building is designed to allow air from both inside and outside to flow freely without the assistance of a mechanical device.
The main purpose of the air conditioning is keeping the building temperature and humidity at their optimum condition. The process is composed of drawing the outside cooler air into the building and exhausting the warm air from the building.
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. Heating is mostly applied during winter or the cold months, or any other application as needed.
These are some of the things you should consider when installing the HVAC.
The installation cost. 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. Pocket friendly HVAC appliances exist for all kinds of people.
The system features. 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.
