Understanding Air Conditioning

25 Oct

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. 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.

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. There are many applications and uses of HVAC.  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 also keeps the interior air on the move, thus preventing stagnation of the same.  This can be applied in buildings to bring the air from outside or circulate the air within the same building.   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.  The main purpose for this is to supply 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.

Maintaining the optimum buildings air temperature and humidity is the main purpose of the air conditioning. 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 has an almost similar working mechanism as that of 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 done during the cold months or the cold seasons of the year.

During installation, some of the aspects that you should watch out for include among others;

The installation cost.  The cost should be affordable.  The systems can be sophisticated with many features and yet still, there are those that are just simple with less features.  HVAC systems exist in wide varieties for everyone, go here to know more!

The features installed in the system.  Look out for the system that is 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.
