HVAC- Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning
HVAC is a system that monitors and controls the flow of air inside residential and
commercial establishments. They should be installed by professional plumbing contractors who are thoroughly familiar with the layout and infrastructure of the building. Providing cooling and heating in summer and winter, respectively, HVAC systems regularly clean and ventilate your home or office by replacing the stale and polluted air inside with fresh outdoor air. Offering significant energy saving benefits, HVAC systems are comprised of three components – heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
To enable heating on cold winter days, HVAC systems include a mechanism which heats air or water. Accordingly, a system of ducts or pipes transports steam from a pump and central boiler to radiators which are usually located next to windows. Heating air mainly through the process of convection, the radiators basically pull the cool air up and heat it while it rises.
Most plumbing experts conduct routine maintenance checks of the ducts and pipes to ensure the heating mechanism is working properly before the cold season sets in.
The air around us is never clean. Whether at home or at work, we are constantly surrounded by bacteria, dust, and many other polluted particles. It is precisely for this reason that we require ventilation. Using fans, vents, and ducts, the ventilation system of the HVAC unit basically allows outdoor air to be circulated throughout the building, while the stagnant indoor air is pushed outside. An air filtration apparatus allows the ventilation system to trap and remove dust and other pollutants from the air. Malfunctioning parts of the ventilation
mechanism should only be replaced by professional plumbers, as they can accurately detect the source of the problem at hand.
Hot and humid summers can be quiet unbearable. The air conditioning unit of the HVAC system can turn your home or office into a pleasant environment where you can enjoy even the most scorching days. The cool air is distributed via the HVAC's system's ducts and circulation mechanism. An air handling unit, installed within the building, removes the heat from the circulating air. The air is then dehumidified following a process comprised of compression, heat exchange, condensation and evaporation. Finally, fans push the cooled air by means of ventilators into the rooms of the building, where the temperature is controlled by thermostats.
Air conditions tend to malfunction at the most inopportune times. A broken AC unit in the height of summer is nothing short of an emergency, and should therefore be handled by experienced and qualified 24/7 emergency plumbing contractors.
Thanks to their energy saving principles, HVAC systems are very popular among home and office owners. To begin with, by constantly replacing the polluted indoor air with clean and filtered outdoor air, HVAC systems improve air quality, and by extension alleviate potential risks of colds and allergies. Secondly, the fact that the HVAC system is comprised of one heating and cooling unit rather than of two separate ones means a shorter installation period and lower installation fees, as well as less power usage in the long run.
Finally, all buildings are susceptible to moisture retention, which in turn leads to mold and mildew. Replacing the moist air indoors with fresh, dry outdoor air, HVAC systems can significantly reduce the chances of mold growth. Professional plumbers can elaborate on these and other advantages of HVAC systems, as well as provide detailed information pertaining to the ins and outs of the system and its various components.
