Time for a class in HVAC technology! Just in case you missed the first lesson, HVAC is short for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. It’s a whole system with the sole purpose of making the indoor environment habitably comfortable. HVAC systems are currently available in four different types. These four types of HVAC systems all come in different sizes and specifications to suit your business or home.
Split systems are the most classic of the heating and air conditioning systems. These are the traditional types of HVAC system where you have components of the whole system that are both inside and outside the building. HVAC split systems will typically have:
The hybrid heat split system is an advanced version of the classic HVAC split system that has an improved energy efficacy. When included in these types of HVAC systems, a heat pump will allow the option of having an electrically fueled HVAC up and above the typical gas furnaces. An ideal hybrid heat split system that is cost effective will have:
A duct-free HVAC provides good installations for places and areas where the convectional systems with ducts can’t go. These systems are also ideally great compliments to existing ducted types of HVAC systems. Duct-free systems will have the following;
A packaged HVAC system is the solution to those homes and offices without adequate spaces for all the separate multiple components of the split systems. Packaged heating and air conditioning systems will sort out confined spaces that range from entire homes to the one-roomed units, all in one package. Packaged HVAC systems will contain:
That concludes our lesson in HVAC for now; hopefully it has educated you a little more on the various types of HVAC systems and what each of them contains. The primary goal for any HVAC system is to provide acceptable thermo comforts and good quality indoor air in a given building. With good knowledge of the available types and an understanding of your specific needs, it cannot be too hard to know what kind of a heating, ventilation and air conditioning system you would need.
